Veggie Patties

In my world, hamburger is a food group (so is ground pork). That being said, I’m not allowed to eat them that often (bad doctor). I used to search for an acceptable substitute, still looking.

I don’t mind vegetable patties. Although vegetable patties do not even come close to approximating hamburger. There are other vegetable patty varieties out there that are supposed to approximate beef patties, but I feel if I’m going to eat hamburger, I want to eat hamburger. The problem I have with them is that they tend to get lost in between regular hamburger buns. The whole bread to patty ratio is off to me.

Browsing through the market the other day, I came across these “sandwich thins.”

Sandwich Thins

The sandwich thins seemed to be a good size for the vegetable patties. Since the patties were on sale, I thought I’d give it a shot.

The sandwich thins have a textured exterior that reminds me of saloon pilot crackers (my father used to love saloon pilot crackers with butter and peanut butter).

Sandwich Thins

Out of the package, the sandwich thins have an “unfinished” feel to them, almost a half baked texture.┬áNo problem, a couple of minutes in the toaster oven to crisp them up.

If you didn’t know this already, when it comes to food, I’m a bit weird sometimes (others feel my weirdness is not limited just to food). anyway, if I’m making a sandwich at home, I tend to keep it very simple, if I’m eating a sandwich on the outside, I want the works. I think it’s too complicated to prepare all the fixings at home.

I digress, I toasted the sandwich thins, and heated the veggie patty.

Veggie Patty on Sandwich Thin

A dab of ketchup and mustard, lest you think I went off the deep end on eating healthy,


I added bacon slices, heh heh heh. These were the slices left over after rendering the fat to cook cabbage (see previous post).

All in all, the sandwich thins matched with the veggie patties pretty well.
