My Morning Star Burger

A couple weeks ago, the week of my birthday to be exact, I took Thursday off to work on homework. I lead an exciting life people. I took a break and went to Trader Joe’s to get lunch and a couple other things. I decided to try a few new things in the freezer section. One of those things was Morningstar Farms® Tomato & Basil Pizza Burgers.

I’d never had a Morningstar burger, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but OMG you guys this is my new favorite dinner. It may have something to do with the toppings I added, but if the burger was gross, the toppings wouldn’t save it, right?

Wanna know what I put on it?
I took our left-over heirloom tomatoes and made a relish…

Hubs melted the mozzarella on top, while the burgers were still on the grill. Once it was ready we just piled it all on and enjoyed.

I felt weird not to put ketchup or mustard on my burger, but with the tomato and the cheese it doesn’t need it.

What are your favorite burger toppings?

This just got me excited... those burgers have been sitting in my freezer for a few weeks now and I haven't made them yet. Maybe that will be dinner tonight :)

Good thing I just ate lunch, because this is making me hungry! I'll have to try them next time I got to Trader Joes. And I'll be adding some avo, no burger is complete without it!

I'm so glad you tried these - Morningstar Farms products are wonderful! The pizza burgers you tried are yummy - I also love love love the black bean burgers and the asian veggie patties. Yum yum yum...get your hands on some of those too!

YUM!! Can't wait to try it! It'll be good to make something other than spaghetti squash for a while. :)

Laura - OMG I love that you have them already! Make them, they are so tasty!
Morgan - Mmmm avocado, that would take this to another level. Good call!
Katie - I always meant to try Morningstar but never thought to buy it when I got to the store. I'll have to try the black bean burger and asian veggie patties next. Thanks for the recommendations :)

I am SO INTRIGUED. Does it taste like a pizza? Or a burger? I might be into this. Please share further details via blog or tweet for this UBER picky eater :)

Yum! My favorite burger topping is grilled pineapple and bbq sauce. I also love avacado, but not on the same burger as pineapple/bbq. Yum, I totally want a burger now!

I love these burgers too!. In case you're wondering, they taste great plain. Often I eat it with no bun and just salt and pepper. Honestly, a lot of that is just plain laziness :) I may have to use your heirloom tomato relish. Your burger looks amazing.
