      Another great product from the Quorn range :o)

      I am a big fan of Quorn products as you can tell from my recent reviews, I always have my freezer stocked well with different Quorn items/goodies. I think it tastes great, easy and fast to cooks and low in saturated fat perfect for me.

      Quorn Southern Style Chicken Burgers:
      'With a crunchy breadcrumb coating, seasoned with black pepper'

      One things I love about quorn is the good range they have nowadays in the super markets and so far I'm yet to find any I dislike, which is good for me as people that know me will tell you how fussy I am when it comes to food.

      My Findings:

      I have used these quite a few times now and I never tire of them, they have a delicious taste with a superb coating to match. One of my partner's favourite meats is chicken and though I don't eat meat this is away for both of us eating the same meal; without me having to prepare two meals each time.

      In the past I have tried a few different vegetarian southern burgers but none compare to the Quorn brand. In the past they have been dry and hard kind of like chewing on cardboard. But then I tried the Quorn version and never looked back!

      They taste just wonderful, soft and moist in the middle with scrumptious coating which teams very well with the quorn. Personally I do think they taste just like chicken burgers, just with more flavour and a healthier option than your local KFC.

      I have eaten these on there on with a side salad and also had them on a bap either way they taste yummy. I am I big fan of sauces as I find its a great way to add a twist to your food, and I love sweet chilli sauce with a Quorn Southern burger and salad on a bap. Another tasty way is lemon mayonnaise and salad with your burger, the list is endless and a great way to not get bored with your food.

      I do like to change things around with my food as I am a person that gets bored very easily, so another way to eat these is when cooked cut into strips and in a fajita. There are some great spices on the market so you could have plenty fun making them; plus something your child could help you with.

      How to cook:

      Oven - 16 minutes at 220c, reduce cooking time by 2 minutes for fan assisted ovens.
      Grill - 12 minutes on a medium setting, don't forget to turn frequently.

      To be cooked from frozen.

      Allergy Advice:
      Contains - Egg, milk and wheat gluten

      Nutritional Information:

      Price and Availability:

      These can be purchased from most super markets, so far I have always found Asda to be cheaper and they do have them on special offer for £1.00 per box quite often.

      Normal price for these burgers is around £1.89 for the pack of four burgers so still not bad value.

      Overall:

      I adore these Quorn southern burgers, you can have them as plain as you like or jazz them up to be as fancy as you like. Quick and easy to prepare, tasty fast food without that high fat take away calories.

      They maybe burgers but they are very versatile with what you can do with them, tasty all the way!

      Even if you're not a veggie I would recommend you give these beauties a go!

      Five out of five from me.

      Thanks for reading :o)

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great burger, tastes greats and the kids will love them

        I love food but food doesn't love me-calories can soon build up and the requirement of a gym membership can soon be a 'must' if you eat too many burgers. However a few years ago I went on a quest to find a burger that I could enjoy without worrying too much about calories-and I found that in Quorn Southern Style Burgers.

        I am not a vegetarian-yet I love these burgers as they are so delicious.

        So what is Quorn? To quote their website:

        All Quorn products are made with mycoprotein, a versatile, vegetable protein.

        Mycoprotein is the ingredient common to all Quorn products. Mycoprotein is a healthy meat-free form of high quality protein and is also a good source of dietary fibre. It is naturally low in fat and saturated fat.

        Quorn is a versatile product that can be used to create mouth watering meals from chilli con carnes to spag bol-the options are endless.

        So what does a Quorn Southern Style Burger taste like? A tasty, chicken like burger in a crispy peppery breadcrumb coating. The burger is quite juicy, and not dry like you maybe expect-and with a dollop of lemony mayo and a bit of salad these burgers make a great meal. I've even but them on the BBQ-and have success with them. If you love cheddar then you could always put a slice on to make the burger even more tangy and juicy.

        So what is in a Quorn Southern Style Burger:
        Quorn burger (66%) [mycoprotein*, free range rehydrated egg white, onion, textured wheat protein (wheat protein, wheat starch), flavourings, milk protein, tapioca starch, gelling agent: pectin], batter (water, wheat flour, salt, raising agents: tetrasodium diphosphate, sodium bicarbonate; citric acid, flavouring, black pepper, pimento, nutmeg & aniseed extracts, hydrogenated vegetable oil; black pepper, colour: paprika extract); breadcrumb (wheat & malt flour, rapeseed & palm oil, salt, sugar, yeast, acetic acid, salt, black pepper), sunflower oil. *35% of product.

        Per burger you are looking at 119 calories-bargain!

        My final verdict-love these burgers and with summer on it's way they will be making their way onto my meal plans with a nice green leafy salad. I've even chopped them up (into slices) and put them in a wrap with mayo-yummy!

        Look out for special offers in larger supermarkets as these can often be found with 50 pence off or even half price.

        Available at all good Supermarkets across the UK.

          Quorn Southern Style Burgers - breadcrumb coated burgers with a peppery kick.

          I have been a vegetarian now for seven years and always enjoy finding new food to try. I have worked my way through most of Quorn's products now, the most recent being the Southern Style Burgers.

          I have eaten Quorn Chicken Style Burgers many times, but had not thought about the Southern Style, because I thought they might be too spicy. I am really glad now, that I decided to give them a go.

          *What is Quorn?*

          For anyone who hasn't eaten or came across Quorn before, the following is a brief description:
          Quorn is a mycoprotein, which is a member of the fungi family. It is high in protein and dietary fibre, low in fat and has zero cholesterol and trans fat. It is also low in calories.

          Quorn Southern Style Burgers are best cooked from frozen. I cooked mine in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 7 / 425F / 220C for 12 minutes.

          The burgers came out of the oven a deep golden colour. The breadcrumbs, were crisp and crunchy and I couldn't wait to tuck in. I had my burger in a bun with a slice of tomato, lettuce and a dollop of mayo. I also had chips on the side.

          Biting into the burger, I found the expected, thick slice of succulent chicken style Quorn. The combination of the crunchy, peppery breadcrumbs, and the melt in the mouth Quorn is just perfect. The breadcrumbs did have a bit of a spiciness to them, but not overly so and not enough to burn your mouth off. Combined with the mayo and cooling effect of the lettuce and tomato, I found the burger just right for me. Those that do like hot, spicy food may be a little disappointed.

          *Nutritional Value Per Burger*

          Energy - 119 kcal
          Protein - 6.7g
          Carbohydrate - 9.1g
          of which sugars - 1.8g
          Fat - 6.2g
          of which saturates - 0.8g
          Fibre - 1.9g
          Sodium - 0.5g
          Salt Equivalent - 1.3g

          Quorn Southern Style Burgers can be found in major supermerkets at around £1.60. They come in a pack of four, which makes them good value for money in my opinion.

          They are great for lunch in a bun or can be eaten as part of a main meal, with potatoes and a selection of vegetables.

          These are now a firm favourite with my family and I will be buying them on a regular basis.

          excellent way to get your protein in

          I have been a vegetarian for the best part of 25 years and am always looking for new quick foods to try. These quorn burgers were on offer in the supermarket a few months ago and have become a firm favourite both with myself and my non vegetarian daughter.

          Quorn is a great way of consuming the protein you need to build your body up and as a marathon runner, I find that quorn is an easy way to make sure I am having enough to keep me going.

          These burgers are quorn with a lovely crispy coating and are extremely tasty. They are easy to grill and fry, but we have found that they taste the best when they are oven cooked. They would be perfect if you were having a barbeque in the summer and I bet that you could get some of your meat eating friends to try and love them too.

          Disadvantages

          A really tasty meat-free snack :-)

          I used to be a vegetarian, a lifestyle choice of mine which had a span of over a decade. Because of this, I have a few issues with eating meat products even though I am no longer veggie. If I am having meat, it has to be 'false' such as sausages or something, and I have not eaten any real poultry products for about fifteen years or so.

          During my time as being a veggie, I was of course an avid Quorn fan and to this day I still buy a lot of their products on a regular basis. The brand in general has come on leaps and bounds in the past five years or so and some of the items in the range are downright delicious. Some of the items in the range are not suited for my own personal tastes whereas others are so good that they have found their way onto my regular shopping list.

          It was whilst I was doing an online shop recently that I spotted the Quorn southern style burgers. Realising that I had not bought this product for years, I decided to buy a box of the burgers to give them a try out.

          For anybody who is unaware of the Quorn products, Quorn is a man-made soya-based substance that is a meat substitute. It is lower in fat than meat is and is therefore seen as being a bit of a healthier alternative for the most part. There are a variety of products available in the Quorn range, and there is a website available at www.quorn.co.uk, should you require more information.

          The Quorn southern style burgers come in a box containing two individual burgers. The picture on the front of the cardboard box certainly makes the burgers look very appealing and tasty. The burgers are a frozen food item and they do not require to be defrosted before cooking. This is highly convenient for my own needs as they can remain in the freezer until I need to cook them, then plonked in a hot oven. Minimum care and minimum effort is required and this is a huge bonus in my book!

          When it came to cooking the burgers, I removed them from the box and I thought immediately that they looked lovely. The burgers have a crumb type of coating surrounding them and this looked quite delicious upon first inspection. I was a bit disappointed in their size and it did occur to me that one burger might not be enough for my other half, but as I was serving the burgers with a selection of vegetables as well as potatoes I thought that I might just get away with the one burger for his evening meal on this occasion. The box only contained two burgers anyway so I didn't have much choice! Bear in mind though, that these burgers are bit on the small side in my opinion and if you decide to give them a try you might well need to buy several boxes, depending on how many people you have to feed at dinner.

          Cooking the burgers proved to be as easy and convenient as I had first hoped; all I had to do was pop the burgers into a hot oven and set the timer. I did check on the burgers about half way through their cooking time and turned them over to ensure even cooking. The burgers only take 14 minutes to cook which is great for me as they are so quick!

          When the cooking time was up, I removed the burgers and the first thing I noticed was that there was a thin layer of grease left on my baking tray. This was a bit of a surprise to me as most of the Quorn products are generally seen as a healthy option and I do not remember encountering this problem when cooking other products from the range. I put it down to being the golden crumb coating and dabbed the burgers lightly with some kitchen towel before serving. They were not swimming in grease or anything of the sort, just a bit greasier than I had expected!

          When it came to eating the burgers, both my partner and I thought they were really quite delicious. The Quorn 'meat' in the centre of the burgers was cooked perfectly and was not too chewy or dry. The outside coating of the burgers added a nice seasoned taste to the burgers which otherwise would have been too bland. The coating, whilst not crunchy, proved to provide a nice 'bite' to the burgers and when served with a dollop of garlic sauce and some vegetables, this was a really tasty dinner. Eating the burger by itself was a little on the dry side for my own personal tastes, and the addition of some sauce really did liven it up a little as far as I am concerned.

          The nutritional information on the reverse of the box informs me that each 75g burger provides 160 calories and 8.3g of fat which does seem a tad high considering their small size? I can also see the familiar badge on the box which informs me that the burgers are 'Vegetarian Society Approved'.

          I will definitely buy the burgers again, they proved to be a nice change from the usual Quorn products that I buy regularly. I paid around £1.50 for the box of two burgers from Asda online, but I have also seen them for sale in stores such as Tesco and frozen food stores. I will deduct one star for the fact they were a little overly greasy as well as being a little too dry for my own tastes, but other than that I did think they were quite tasty and I enjoyed them for the most part.

            Nice to have more products to try!

            I have been a vegetarian for many years now, and in that time I have tried plenty of products made by Linda McCartney, Quorn, Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys and more. For these reasons I feel like a bit of an authority on the matter and have plenty to compare each product against.

            Quorn southern styel Burgers are another product from the Quorn range. They are not made from soya, like a lot of alternative products are, they are made from specially cultivated material from mushroom strand fibres. To be honest that sounds disgusting, but you have to try it to understand the taste and texture.

            The southern style burger is Quorns attempt at replicating chicken. The inside is quite plane, not disgustingly so, but doesnt have a flavour that stands out. The texture is quite strand tlike and is soft and chewy but not tough or overly chewy.

            The outer edge in crumbed in a slightly spicey southern american style taste. The burger istelf is quite heavy and dense, and more filling than quorns normal, dark brown burgers.

            The burgers come in 100% recyclable material, a cardboard box, which is great in my opinion. I like them, but I do prefer the normal Quorn burgers. However it is nice to have a variety of food to eat in the freezer and these are especially nice in the summer.

              Quite yummy

              I'm not really a huge fan of the Quorn products, while they do seem to be the market leader of the big veggie brands, I have always found the food a little bland and not very tasty. Every now and then I'll try one of their new offerings as some of them do look really appealing but more often than not I am disappointed by the flavour.

              At the weekend, we had some fab weather and spur of the moment we decided to have a bit of a BBQ as we probably won't have another this year. I sent my husband to the supermarket to pick up the food and also asked him to pick some kind of veggie offering for me. Now I didn't give him any idea what not to or what to get but I was a little disappointed when he came home with a pack of these Quorn Southern Style Burgers. They would not have been what I would have selected at all as I didn't think breadcrumbs on a BBQ would be a sucess but I tried to not let him see my disappointment.

              I believe he bought the burgers from the frozen vegetarian section in my local Sainsburys and they cost £1.49 for a 252g pack which contained 4 burgers. These burgers are basically a veggie take on your standard chicken burger and I believe this variety are easily available in all your major supermarkets.

              Ok so on the BBQ they went and as always the veggie food was ready way before the meat. I put my burgers in a soft white bread roll and added lashings of good old tommy k. Now I was really hungry so I did wolf them down, but do you know what I actually really enjoyed it. They had a very pleasant flavour and were really well seasoned and actually had a slight spicey kick which I quite enjoyed. These burgers were a really pleasant suprise for me and I would definately buy them again.

                Disadvantages

                A good freezer staple food.

                I cannot verify whether or not these actually taste like chicken burgers, as I haven't eaten chicken since I was old enough to spit it out (I must've been around 5 years old!), but they are a firm favourite of mine, I always have a box in the freezer and eat them at least once a week.

                These soya protein burgers are coated in tasty, mildly spicy breadcrumbs; which is, I gather, where the "southern style" comes from. They aren't too spicy however (I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to spices) but they definitely have a bit of a kick.

                I personally don't like them served as a burger, i.e. in a bun with salad & relish, as I don't think they work very well in that way. The texture is a bit too heavy for this. I do however love them with chips, beans and brown sauce, mmmm lovely comfort food! My meat-loving boyfriend loves them too.

                Like most soya protein products, these are very filling and make you feel like you've had a really good , healthy, satisfying meal. Something us veggies often crave.

                Disadvantages

                A fairly good product and nice when eaten with accompaniments.

                These southern style burgers from the Quorn range are supposed to taste like a chicken burger coated in breadcrumbs. They cost around £1.49 for a pack of 4 in most supermarkets and come frozen rather than fresh. I do think they are a good product but they need jazzing up a bit in my opinion to make them tasty, on their own they are a little bland.

                Taking around 20 minutes to cook in the oven from frozen, they can be grilled or fried but we always just put them on a baking sheet and oven bake as it seems to work well and is less messy. Each burger contains 119 calories and 0.8g of fat so they are a much healthier and lower fat option than a standard chicken burger. This equates to 2 weight watchers points per burger which makes them a good option if you are following the plan.

                I tend to serve them in toasted sesame buns with plenty of tomato ketchup and salad on. Personally I do not think these go well with cheese but my veggie husband usually does have cheese on his. I did try one without the ketchup the first time I had these (I am not a big fan of ketchup) but I found the burger to be both dry and pretty bland when eaten like this. They do not have the natural moisture you would find in a real chicken burger unfortunately and they do need some accessorizing, so to speak!

                When served with ketchup and in a bun etc they are pretty good and the texture is not bad in fooling you that it could be real meat. Personally I do think that the beef style burgers from the Quorn range are better than these and taste nicer, but these do a good job of keeping my husband happy and make a nice change from time to time.

                Not a bad product from the Quorn range but not one of my favourites either.
