The nutritional information is impressive on both products. The Chik Patties have 64% less fat than regular chicken patties and contain only 5g total fat per serving. The Black Bean Veggie Burgers have 73% less fat than regular ground beef and contain only 4g total fat per serving. I had friends over for lunch and served both products to compare and sample Morningstar products.The flavor was as impressive as the nutritional content.

The patties and burgers are the ideal size for English Muffin or you can even cut down more on calories by using sandwich thins, which are about the same size as the muffins. One patty is certainly filling and so we ended up mixing and matching both products so that each person could sample burger and chik patties. Everyone was impressed by how well the meatless products tasted - you certainly did not miss the meat and if I did not know any better, I could have sworn the Chik Patties contained chicken meat.
I can highly recommend MorningStar products, especially if one your resolutions for 2013 is to live healthier or watch your fat content during meals. MorningStar patties represent a healthy and satisfying alternative to traditional meat patties for burgers and sandwiches. I certainly will consider adding MorningStar regularly to our diet and may even participate in their Meatless Monday program. You can find information about this great program that has the possibility to let you win prizes here.
