The original burger patty is well flavoured and when cooked properly has a good texture.  I made a sandwich using the original burger (made in a contact grill)  and whole wheat toast.   It was delicious.   I also tried a burger, cut into pieces, in a stir fry. I might have under cooked it a little, it was okay.

For the crumbed burgers I used proper sesame seed white bread burger buns.  I used mayonnaise as a spread on the buns instead of margarine and added some lettuce, tomato slices and little bit of sweet chili sauce
I cooked the patty in a contact grill (toasted sandwich maker) . On the first burger the mushroom patty was a mushy and probably under cooked, though it looked done on the outside. I couldn’t event taste that it was crumbed.  The burger as a whole was pretty tasty though.  For the second burger ‘n microwaved the patty for a minute, before grilling it in the sandwich maker. This time I could taste that it is crumbed and the texture was somewhat better.

Between the two, I prefer the original. It’s also the healthier option of the two.

To be honest I’d rather just fry a large brown mushroom and bypass the additives. Though these burgers are convenient, tasty and a nice product to keep in your freezer.  I would eat them again. Meat-eaters also seem to like these burgers.

Just follow the cooking instructions.
