The first time we had them was at a BBQ while camping and since then we’ve been fans and regularly have them at home too. Like most Fry’s products they have a lot of flavour to them and are therefore nice and tasty for those children who don’t like to add sauces.
We generally eat them in buns as burgers, though they’re also tasty chopped up after cooking and added to pasta or other dishes. They hold together well when barbequed and are also good grilled. We’ve not tried them fried or baked in the oven.
They are nice and quick to prepare. If you barbeque or fry them they cook in less than 10 minutes, so be careful not to overdo them. Grilling and oven baking takes just over 10 minutes.
Like the sausages they have a meaty texture and we have had non vegetarian relatives declare them to delicious and an excellent substitute for “real” burgers, going well with mayonnaise, tomato sauce, relishes, etc. They also look good, with an authentic chargrilled pattern.
They taste good when cold as well as hot, so can be used for picnics and packed lunches, and are vegan.
Fry’s Vegetarian Traditional Burgers are available online at GoodnessDirect.co.uk and at independent health shops as well as at places like Holland & Barrett.
