Healthy Buffalo “Chicken” Burgers

This sweepstakes has closed. Thanks to all those who entered!

Most of us tend to turn towards healthier foods in the summer. We don’t want to feel weighed down after a meal when we are out running around in shorts, skirts, and bathing suits, so a lot of the time our favorite pastas and heavy casseroles are shelved until fall. We love to grill in the summer but haven’t been able to much at our apartment. That has definitely put a damper on some of our favorite summer foods like shish-kabobs and steaks so we’ve turned to other light options. We recently tried these new MorningStar Farms Buffalo Chick burgers and they were scrumptious. Mike loves anything buffalo so I knew it would be a hit. buffalo burgerRather than just using a regular bun, I decided to try a homemade pretzel bun. Mine definitely didn’t turn out as pretty as Katie’s, but they were delicious. I halved the recipe, since this was just for Mike and I, which made three buns {he ate two sandwiches} and it worked fine. I think I should have taken them out a couple minutes earlier because the bottom was getting a little too brown, but still yummy. They are as easy as she claims so if you have any interest in attempting a pretzel bun, I would definitely recommend this recipe! Now the burgers… buffalo chicken burgerThese have the same texture and taste as chicken but are veggie burgers! I know, crazy, right? Mike, who is a big meat-eater, even really liked it. They are low in calories, but taste like any breaded chicken you would get at a restaurant. We went for the Buffalo Chik flavor and they do have the buffalo kick to them so if you are a spice-lover, this would be perfect. If you don’t love spice, they have tons of other flavors like Mediterranean Chickpea and Roasted Garlic & Quinoa which both sound yummy too. MorningStar Farms is always introducing new flavors and has 30+ products and over 600 recipes. Another bonus was that they are budget-friendly, which we love:) We even used a coupon from Target and got a little bit extra off. Always check the Cartwheel app, friends! I swear they have a coupon for almost everything. We just topped our sandwiches with cheese and lettuce and gobbled them up. morningstar
