Product Review: Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burgers

Linda McCartney Mozzarella BurgersLinda McCartney Mozzarella Burgers are seasoned vegetarian 1/4lb burgers made with rehydrated textured soya protein, onion and Mozzarella cheese. That’s how these mozzarella burgers are described. They come in 227gr frozen packs –only 2 burgers per pack.

I must admit, Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burgers are quite tasty, filling and surprisingly meaty. However, they dry out big time during cooking process. It could be because of my oven but I tried a few times with different settings or distance from the actual grill without any luck.

Cooking Instructions

All grills and ovens vary; timings are to be used as a guideline only. Please adjust times accordingly. For best results, always cook from frozen. Do not microwave. Ensure food is piping hot and cooked through prior to serving. Remove outer packaging. Grill for best results.

Grill: Preheat grill and wire rack to a moderate heat. Place burgers onto the wire rack and grill for 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally.

Conventional oven: Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6. Place burgers onto a preheated baking tray and cook in the centre of the oven for 18-20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Fan oven: Preheat oven to 180°C. Place burgers onto a preheated baking tray and cook in the centre of the oven for 18-20 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.

Serving Suggestions

Enjoy the perfect ¼ pounder, with fried mushrooms and onions spooned on top and steamed green beans tossed in a little butter on the side or for an Italian inspired meal, serve with sundried tomatoes, black olives and green pesto.

Where to Buy

Because Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burgers are made in Britain and relatively new in Australia, they are a little difficult to get. So far, I found them only at Continental Foods, Artarmon. Let’s hope that it becomes available easily at any local supermarket soon.

Storage

Linda McCartney Mozzarella Burgers are frozen products. So, keep them frozen, cook from frozen and like any frozen product, do not refreeze.
