Product Spotlight - Gardein Sliders

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!
