I Ordered Burger King's New "BK Veggie" Burger Today...

...and the whole place went silent. It was at a Burger King in the small, rural town of Talladega, Alabama (better known for "The SuperSpeedway" - Nascar). They informed me that it would "be awhile" as they apparently don't sell many of them. Plus, I ordered it with cheese. The customers stopped munching on their Whoppers and new Chicken Whoppers to see who this outsider was ordering a new age burger. I felt like I had made a cultural mistake.

I am not a vegetarian, but I sometimes enjoy vegetarian meat-substitutes such as falafel and portobella mushroom. I merely wanted to try the BK Veggie. It was okay. The consistency was like that of ground beef, but lighter. They loaded it with mayonnaise like on a Whopper, though I would have preferred the mustard and ketchup that is famous on their regular burgers. The taste, however, was more like a portabello mushroom sandwich I once had at an art museum cafe. This was understandable since it consists of a mushroom-based vegetable mixture.

At the end of my meal, which also consisted of Coke and a medium order of fries, I was feeling empty. The BK Veggie didn't have the impact of a Whopper or even my usual cheeseburger. Out of desperation, after re-filling my Coke, I went to the counter and ordered a Hershey's Sundae Pie and ran out of the restaurant eating it. If I had simply ordered a cheeseburger to begin with, the pie would have been unnecessary.

I ordered a vegie burger from a health place that delivered in NYC. It looked great. Nice, evenly distributed brown color. It looked juicy and was rather plump.

I took a big bite out of it and noticed that the inside of the burger wa a bright green. Apparently, the restaurant pulverizes broccoli, mushrooms, spinach and god know what else into patty. Then they deep fry it. The outside was fried a cripy brown while the inside was mushy and green.

It was awful. So much for trying to eat healthy. I almost vomited.

PS I didn't finish it.

Being that it was Burger King, this one was charbroiled. No fried burgers there.

And also:

A few minutes later, I was at a shopping center down the road, and I heard a cow mooing in an adjacent pasture. This was significant for two reasons: the cow may have been saying "thanks for not eating my relatives," but more importantly - the customers had reacted oddly at my alternative choice when I FORGOT that Talladega is a large beef cattle producing community. Silly me.

"you know" meaning you know that I know, or that I know that you know that I know... ? if so, how did you know?

I "know" that you were referring to TheCK. But your mention (and TheCK's mention) of the fried variety led me to clarify the cooking process of BK Veggie for the fast food illiterate who may read this thread.

I am off to bed. I hopethe BK Veggiet doesn't give my weird dreams about trolls and rainbows. It has already influenced other side effects today.

I eat a veggie burger for breakfast every morning. The ones I get at the supermarket are very good for you. 18 grams of protein and only 1 gram of saturated fat. With a small amount Olive Oil they taste great!

I've had several of them, theyre pretty good, but definitely not the best veggie burgers ive ever had.
They taste like stove top stuffing. I like 'em, but they could be improved.

If you ate more meat, you probably wouldn't have delusions like that. The mushrooms made you hallucinate. Besides, eating too many veggies makes you violent, just look at the guy who killed Pim Fortuyn.
