Fake meat…man…I’m ashamed.
Before doing this faux vegan/vegan-ish/really vegetarian with a side of pescatarian and bacon, I could not understand for the life of me the fake meat thing. A few people I know have been vegetarian or light vegan so I’ve seen a few different options. I would forever be like “nah”. Now…I’m here to eat my words and this fake chick’n.
So one day a couple weeks ago we had some faux snow down here in good ol’ Louisiana. So EVERYTHING was shut down. This was one of my first weeks going full vegetarian/vegan for 5 days a week. Yea I started off saying I would be vegan 3x a week but I’ve kind of slipped into no meat for 5 days and MAYBE a little weekend seafood. Anyway, here I am at home and hungry. So I decide to get out these sliders.
So they don’t come with all the toppings of course: just the “meat” and bread. So I preheated the oven and got ready to make a couple of these for lunch.
So these were surprisingly good. From the breading, I could tell they would be seasoned and probably tasted good. It was the texture that I was not prepared for. It was so much like…chicken. Ok let’s be real a second…it wasn’t like chick fil a chicken but it was your typical fast food or frozen chicken texture. It was recognizable as what you’d expect from a frozen chicken patty.
