    Garlic Portabella Patties

    I just bought these and they are delicious!

    100 calories per patty
    4.5g fat
    270mg sodium
    6g carbs
    0 cholesterol
    360mg potassium
    12g protein

    Great on the BBQ or indoor grill. I used my George Foreman grill today, added a slice of fresh tomato, melted veggie cheese, lettuce, salsa and Dijon mustard. OMG - unbelievable!

    Oh, crap! How the heck did I miss that? Back to making my own, which I prefer anyway. Thanks for the heads up!

    I should have know they were too good to be true. Must pay more attention to reading the teeny tiny ingredients list. I should not have assumed that just because it was in the "vegetarian" section that it contained no animal products or by-products. Gotta watch that more closely instead of the marketing and packaging.

    Also contains a cultured milk product - double crap!!

    Any company that puts "100% vegetarian" on their packaging makes me want to I mean, it's not like anyone's pushing a 97% vegetarian burger for those who are intrigued by a meatless diet but can't quite give up their dehydrated chicken fat extract. You know?

    But then, Koolkat, regular old portobellos grilled with just a light basting of olive oil and balsamic vinegar are so yummy and so great in sandwhiches, why spend a fortune on pre-made burger patties?

    Yeah, there should be strict rules about using the "vegetarian" marketing terms. I get so fed up with the industry I usually end up making my own food from scratch, especially baked goods. There's so much to learn about where particular ingredients come from. If any ingredient is from an animal or animal by-product, it should be clearly stated on all "vegetarian" food packages.

    I like grilled portobellos, but sometimes just have a craving for something a bit different. I'm experimenting with a new vegan mushroom burger, so when I get the right combo of ingredients, I'll post it.
