Don't think of this as tasting like hamburger. Just think of it as tasting good. We love this product - and this is really a very good price considering that it ships for free. One can is approximately the same quantity as 1 lb. of ground beef.

Some examples of what we do with this product:

hash:

saute small cubes of potato & chopped onions, add burger, break up lumps, & brown all together; add a couple of shakes of (optional) Angostura Worcestershire sauce [no anchovies in that brand], & serve with eggs for breakfast or veggies for dinner; even buttermilk ranch dressing is good on this.

stir fry:

brown burger & set aside, stir-fry onions, celery, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, snow peas, bean sprouts, mushrooms, radish slices, and/or water chestnuts (or whatever combination of veggies you like) as you would for any stir fry; add burger to reheat & serve with Ramen noodles or other pasta, on bread, or just as is, with soy sauce or Angustura Worcestershire sauce. Buttermilk ranch dressing is good here, too.

burgers:

to each can of burger, add 1 finely chopped onion, 1 rib of finely chopped celery, 1/4 C. chopped green pepper (optional), 2 eggs, 1/2 C. cracker crumbs, 1/2 C. oatmeal; form into patties & brown over moderate heat [onions & celery must be done & raw eggs thoroughly cooked]; when crispy on both sides & done inside (about 7 min. per side), serve on buns, rolls, bread, or plate with mayo, ketchup, onions, pickles, tomato, sprouts, or other burger fixin's.

casseroles:

1 can burger browned with onions & celery, 1 tsp. sage, 1 can mushroom soup, 1/2 soup can milk, 6-8 oz. noodles (cooked), 16 oz. shredded cheddar cheese, 8 oz.

We use this Worthington Vegetarian Burger for so many different meals. We make tacos, meatloaf, meatballs, sloppy joe and many other things that call for ground beef. The price on Amazon is an AWESOME deal for 12 cans. I hope they will continue to stock this item because from now on we'll be buying it online instead of the health food store. We also enjoy the Worthington Chili very much and will be purchasing it from Amazon next time. These products are an excellent substitute for meat. Can't say enough about them!

I felt like I was taking a big risk ordering 12 cans from Amazon having never tried it, and I crossed my fingers I would like it. Well, I don't just like it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it! This stuff is great. I try to sneak it into all my meals. Hamburger helper, spaghetti, stir-fry, regular hamburgers, stews, casseroles, lasagna, tacos, anything. I even make very messy sandwiches with it. It's AWESOME! Tastes fabulous. Sometimes I even eat it just by itself if I have leftovers. Even cold out of the fridge with nothing with it, it's good.

Best vegetarian product I've ever tried (and I've tried a lot of them). I will be buying a lot of their other variations (the chicken, turkey, hot dogs, etc). They even have fake scallops!

Thank you Amazon for carrying this wonderful brand!

This is a great product which goes well in a number of staple dishes (i.e. chili, pasta sauce) as well as making a great burger base. Would highly recommend it.

Beware that if you are hoping to order the Worthington Burger in the can with the red label, this is not it. This is the Loma Linda Veggie Burger with the green label. They are not the same, and the photo here is misleading.

When I first tried this, I wasn't in love with it. I had only eaten one other brand of veggie burger crumbles and I think I was just used to the taste of those. Now that I have eaten this more, it has started to grow on me. I wouldn't say that it tastes like ground meat per se, but it does taste good and it is an excellent substitute for ground meat in recipes. I like to sautee some with onions and various spices to add to pasta sauce. It's also good to use with taco seasoning for tacos...it's pretty versatile. The fact that it's shelf stable is a bonus.

This is a fairly good product, but non-vegetarians and some vegetarians won't like it. Of Worthington and Loma Linda's several burger products, I think this Worthington Burger and Loma Linda's Vege-Burger are good for general use in chili, tacos, casseroles, or vegetarian meatloaf. (I don't like the company's "Redi Burger", however).

A couple reviewers gave this product a bad review because when they opened the can it reminded them of the appearance and scent of "dog food." Actually a couple times I've had the same thought, and I think that after opening hundreds of cans of dog food through the years, we're conditioned by appearance and the meaty odor from the can. I also have opened cans of refried beans though, and had the same impression that it looked and smelled like "dog food." Remember that "dog food" does not contain "dog" meat, and these vegetarian burger products do not contain any type of dead animal meat or animal byproducts. This food product is meat-free and has lots of protein.

My suggestion is to open the can, ignore any visual impression associating this with a food product for animals, and use a fork to break apart the compressed product prior to using it in your recipes.

Note that this processed product is very soft, and does not have the firm texture of cooked ground beef. It's already at maximum hydration, so do not add a lot of other liquid to recipes where this is used. This product cannot be sliced and cooked as is, it will fall apart when handled, and must be used in recipes with other ingredients. I tried it for barbeques/sloppy joes many years ago and was disappointed because of the very soft texture.
