So, I know I picked a weird day to make this post. Usually it’s Meatless Monday. I guess Friday would work, too, since it’s Lent. Is that correct? I’m not Catholic, so I’m not entirely clear on the rules and regulations of Lent.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to some-what participate in the Meatless Monday campaign for a few months now. I say ‘some-what’ because I have one meatless meal a week, and it’s not always on Monday. Well, It’s actually rarely on Monday. That still counts, though. I’m still getting all the benefits from that go along with Meatless Monday. There’s just less alliteration.
I’m not against eating meat. I love bacon way too much, but I also love the challenge that comes with making meatless meals that fit my family’s needs. It’s been fun for me to hunt down and try different recipes, tweak them, and make them my own. I realize that not everyone would enjoy this type of thing, though. That’s why I’m here today: to tell you about MorningStar Farms products.
This is a brand that I’ve used for a while. I try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible, but every now and then I need something quick and easy. These are perfect for that. They’re also perfect as a stepping stone to go meatless, even for just one day a week.
Because I am so familiar with this brand, I didn’t think twice when BzzAgent asked me to join their MorningStar campaign. I received a coupon for a free product, and I decided to try their Veggie Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuits.
I’m a huge fan of breakfast and usually cook a HUGE one. Sometimes, though, I need something that I can grab quickly and run out the door. these were perfect for that. They were filling enough to hold me over to lunch (if I didn’t run in the morning!) and were pretty tasty. Although, they had a lot of pepper in them. I was fine with it, but keep that in mind if you are not a fan of pepper.
I should tell you that I’m getting points for this post. For more information on that, you can read my disclaimer. To get full points, I have to share my favorite recipes. I’ve never really cooked with this product, but I have done the following for lunch:
- I’ve made amazing Buffalo Salads using spinach, lots of veggies, Veggie Buffalo Wings, and ranch dressing.
- Daniel’s favorite is when I make him barbecue riblet wraps using a tortilla, cheese, Hickory BBQ Riblets, and veggies.
- I have used Veggie Meatballs for spaghetti and meatballs.
That doesn’t include the products I’ve used normally…. burgers, chik’n nuggets, sausage.
Not to sound like a commercial or anything, but MorningStar Farms really does make going meatless a little easier.
Thanks for getting through my first kinda-sorta sponsored post.
