I am in love.  Amy’s Quarter Pound Veggie Burger is perfect.  This is another winner from Amy’s. A brand I have grown to love, trust, and be constantly impressed by. Amy’s has given us a huge patty with intense burger flavor and organic ingredients, what more could a vegan girl ask for! 

People ask me all the time, “what is the best veggie burger?”  It is a hard answer considering there are so many.  Some burgers are really veggie patties not meant to imitate a burger, but to be a veggie style sandwich all on it’s own, think Dr. Praeger’s.  Some are trying to mimic the taste and texture of an actual beef burger, like a Gardein burger.  This Amy’s patty is kind of a cross between the two.  It really does have both a burger flavor and a veggie burger texture.  I am happy to say, it is in a class of it’s own. I would rank this #1 on my top ten! Just check out these stats below and see why.

Pretty impressive, right?  Other than being a bit high in sodium, I give these an A+. The size of this burger is perfect for feeding a hungry man, or a ravenous woman!  I like to have mine with the fixings on the bottom, and no bun.  I save myself a lot of extra calories and carbs.  I would rather enjoy them at another meal.  This burger is so outstanding, no bun is necessary to enjoy is fabulousness.

Next time you are at the store, pick up a box, you will be happy you did.  These cost me $4.99 for 4, that is only $1.25 for a quarter pound organic burger!  You can enjoy this with a baked potato or homemade fries on the side and a dessert and still be under $2.50 for the whole meal.  Now that is a “happy meal”.

  1. Good sharing, for healthy purpose, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body’s storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia’s University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels. Read more at:
