While I do try to stay away from frozen meals, I will admit that I occasionally indulge. When I was at Whole Foods recently, I noticed these Gardein Beefless Sliders in the freezer section! I just had to try them. Since becoming a vegetarian, I have really missed sliders. They are just such a fun food! Well, I was very happy I had them in my freezer because I have not been in much of a position to do extra cooking (you know what I mean if you saw the end of yesterday's post). So I decided to try them for lunch.
The package included 4 patties and 4 buns. It only required the use of a skillet to heat everything through. While the burgers were cooking, I sliced some farm fresh tomatoes and onions and organic lettuce. The entire meal was ready in about 8 minutes! I have to tell you, I was worried about the bun. I thought it was going to be dry, but it was really good! Along with the veggies, I added organic ketchup, mustard and relish. The patties were juicy and had a very good texture.
Overall, I was very pleased with the Gardein Beefless Sliders. They were a quick and easy meal that was perfect for a time when I really couldn't cook. The fact that they only include the patty and the bun means you have a variety of customizations you can make! You can build BBQ sliders with onion rings, Hawaiian sliders with teriyaki sauce and pineapple, add some caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms...the possibilites are endless! I am very pleased that Gardein products use non-GMO ingredients and the quality is consistently impressive. If you see these items in your grocer's freezer, pick them up and give them a try. I really think you will like them!
