Try Quorn for chicken patties. YUM.  I like the Morningstar Black Bean burgers and Grillers Prime.  I am also a big fan of the Boca Original Vegan burgers.  Hands down the best veggie burger available though is the Lightlife veggie burger (the same company that makes Smart Dogs which are also unreasonably delicious).  I can never find them though.

I’m a big fan of the veggie burgers at Houston’s.  As for one to cook at home, Amy’s has a nice line of them, my favorites being the California and the Texas varieties.  I find the easiest way to spice up a veggie burger is to "Grill" it in a frying pan with cooking spray.  It’s 1000x better than nuking it in the microwave.

Oh, you should also try the Morningstar Farms mini corn dogs and buffalo wings!  They are SO GOOD.

I’m not that big into the meat subsitutes, but Fiance likes them and if it’s good enough to keep meat out of the house it’s good news for me!

My top for meat-like subs: Morningstar Grillers Prime and Gardenbuger BBQ Riblets. I especially love the riblets!

Otherwise I stick to more veggie-like patties or just eat veg to cut out the processed foods. If you can find the riblets, though, and like BBQ sauce, you should give those a shot.

We eat Morningstar’s Griller’s Vegan once a week as our "burger fix", I haven’t really liked any other store bought veggie burger otherwise.  Just tried Houston’s veggie burger and it was pretty good. Trader Joe’s has great veggie corn dogs! Quorn is great for mushroom based chik’n products and Morningstar chik patties are great!

I like Morningstar Farms but my favorite is Dr. Praeger’s. I think I got them at Whole Foods, they’re delicious. I even had Mr H try one & he actually said "OH, that’s really good!"….which is a HUGE compliment from him…he’s a steak-a-holic!

I was thinking about my answer and wanted to provide another suggestion if you;re looking for something besides just veggie burgers — my Fiance loves the Morningstar sausage patties. He calls they SoySages. They’re tasty.

We also use the crumbles for tacos, usually I use low-sodium taco seasoning and throw in some onions and mushrooms into the mix. 

I’ll have to try the Dr. Praeger’s!

Have you tried Sunshine Burgers?  I love them.  You can find them at Whole Foods.

Mr.D and I are in love with these – http://ashleescooking.blogspot.com/2009/03/vegetarian-chili-burgers.html

We use a tiny can of mixed beans and tiny can of kidney beans instead of one large can of kidney beans.  We also omit all the salt (you don’t need it) and add another clove of garlic. Making them probably takes are 30-35 minutes? The hardest part is shredding carrots, no lie. Mr.D liked them so much the first time he begged me to make them for lunch the next day.  They also freeze well.  I eat them without a bun and use lettuce instead.  In fact…I think I’m going to go defrost one now..

 I just bought some bulgur so I can attempt a lentil /bulger recipe, I’ll let you knwo how it goes.   It probably won’t be as quick  to make though.

Morningstar Farms Grillers Prime.  Also, their Black Bean burgers are great!

To me, Boca Burgers are just plain nas-ty.

I love the Gardenburger Original patties. They’re usually located in the freezer section next to the Boca and Morningstar stuff. I’m pretty sure the Gardenburger Original ones are the kind they use at several restaurants, like Fuddrucker’s, Red Robin and TGIFriday’s (although I think they took the veggie burger off the menu there).

I totally love the ones at Houston’s too – almost enough to attempt them from scratch. Any good recipes?
