I always keep these in my freezer for a quick dinner. toast them in the toaster oven for 10 minutes and they come out very crisp and tasty. theyre fairly low in carbs but have pretty good protien at about 150 calories, (cant rem the fat but its low) and 8 grams per serving. that means you can have 2 for 300 calories... very delicious also with ketchup or honey mustard or i like them buffalo style with a little hot sauce and maybe a TAD fatfree blue cheese dip.

I love the Chik Patties! I prefer them over real chicken patties. I've not tried the Buffalo Chicken Wings yet, but Jennifer said they are good.

I also love their Tomato and Basil Pizza burger :)

hi suzanne.

morning star makes some good stuff, and i love their chik patties and buffulo chicken tenders... i pop mine for about 10 minutes in the oven and then get nice and crunchy and theyre a REALLY good alternative/treat when youre body is craving "bad" food.

i also like Amy's Spinach Pockets and Mini Spinach-Feta and Mini Pizza Pockets.... Also good in that product are the Spring Rolls and the Veggie Dumpling pockets.

i keep things like this in my freezer for quick dinners when im way too wiped out to cook. a lot of times, with my late cardio classes, i dont end up getting home until after 8 and i dont want to eat anything heavy...

this site is great!!!!!!!

I love everything Morningstar Farms makes.

Just about everything by Morningstar Farms is good! Their Breakfast Sausage Patties are wonderful in the microwave. One WW point each! So along with one of the Eggo fat free waffles (they're also one point each), two of the Breakfast Patties makes a delicious three-point breakfast or light lunch alternative to the same boring cereal, etc.

Have you tried the Morningstar Burger Crumbles. It's veggie ground "beef" and is great in spaghetti sauce.

I made chili with there veggie crumble, I thought it was really salty! But I love their sausage!

I love their chix products and sausage crumbles!!! :D Let me toss in another brand that makes chicken substitute products.. "Quorn" I love their chicken tenders, and other breaded chicken breast products.. They look, taste and feel like real chicken to the tongue..
The most important is they taste good and when they hit your tongue you think it's the real thing... I've tried one other brand's chicken substitutes, and when it touched my tongue I was grossed out.. So MSF and this Quorn are the best..

I don't recall the breaded chicken nutritional information, but here is the one for the tenders.. Just unbreaded chicken chunks.

1 C 90 cals, Fat 2g, if you're counting carbs/ carbs 8/3 fiber/1 sug ;)

last night I tossed these along with a Schwans caesar parmasan shrimp, their garlic herb shrimp with broc florets, with a tiny bit of soy sauce and I had a great stir fry..

With MSF Italian(that's what it taste like to me) sausage crumbles, I made a pizza.. This is what I did..

I use regular size and large size la tortilla factory wheat tortilla, 2 to 3 tblspn of pizza sauce, one table spoon of sliced green olives, sprinkle of pizza seasoning, gentle sprinkles of dry and fresh parmasan cheese and just a gentle sprinkle of colby/jack cheese. I like cheese, but I prefer to use it very gently, just enough to cover not coat.. If you use the dry parm from the jar or container, you may get away with more..

The large La Tortilla factor tortilla is 80 cals, Fat 3 g - 5 carbs for those watching carbs. ;) The smaller tortillas are 50 cal, Fat 2 g, 3 carbs

I bake this for just a few minutes on 400 or more, until the edges get browner and crispy.. It's really fun eats.. Or you can mix the toppings all together with what ever you like and make pizza roll ups... I find this very comforting, since I stopped eating pizza after joining WW yrs ago, but this one brought it back to me..

I hope this all made sense...

I use to merchandise for MSF so I got to try most of their stuff for free and I was very impressed as well! Even those veggie dogs were tasty! I liked their hot pocket type things the best. Not sure if they make those anymore though...

The breakfast sandwiches contain hydrogenated oil. :(

I am so glad to hear that everyone is just as excited about MSF as I am... It's such a great way to CHEAT on your diet without ruining your diet. I LOVE that I can put 5-7 Buff Chicks in the oven for under 300 calories, low fat and sugars, and TONS of protien. It's so good to feel like you dont deprive yourself and often, I'd rather binge on this type of stuff.

I also recently tried the Veggie Crumbles. I think they may have changed the sodium in them because I didn't find them very salty at all. I added them to some low fat tomato sauce, to sneak more protein into my diet and my veggies. I'll eat it with mixed veggies, brown rice, or just some WASA crisp or crackers like chili. It can be converted to many different uses/meals over 3 days.

I'm a single woman, so I only cook for myself, and I love that I can use this in place of my traditional turkey meat sauce.

Great thread! Because of what I read here, I went and bought the MSF sausage patties. They are delicious! Here's a recipe to try...i'm sure someone else has already come up with it elsewhere but I didnt see it so I thought i'd share:

1 Country Kitchen lowfat English Muffin (1 ww pt)
1 MSF sausage patty (1 ww pt)
1/2 box Egg Beater (1 ww pt)
1 slice Kraft fat free cheese (1 ww pt)

I fried the egg beater using weight watchers butter spray and seasoned it with salt and pepper and molly mcbutter sprinkles.

the result is a very flavorful sausage, egg and cheese muffin for 4 points! I keep thinking that I should feel guilty for eating it! :lol:

Thanks for this thread funkmaster...all I have ever eaten from MSF is the burgers, thinking the other products couldnt possibly taste that good. I know better now! I'm trying the chik patties for supper :)

a note on the morning star veggie crumbles:::

i used these for veggie soft tacos (on a fat free tortilla w/ low fat mozzerella) w/ some taco seasoning mix and OMG were these SO GOOD.

they really were very good, you can hardly tell the difference. even my brother who protested when he saw what i was making though when he saw me eating it his interest was piqued and he polished my second one right off.

i think the only downside might be that the the sodium BUT if you balance out you days allowance or as a treat, i think its yummy.

i look forward to experiementing more with the veggie crumbles as i really enjoy them for a protein punch!

MSF Patties (or any decent meat-substitute patties for that matter) goes great in fried rice. just stir in a wok/skillet/pan with 3/4 cup of mixed veggies, cooked white rice [4-6oz. before cooking] (and yes, fried rice is better when you use rice that sat overnight), a little oil (preferably the very healthy extra virgin olive oil), half an egg (or egg beater), and a little soy/teriyaki sauce. Makes for a VERY satisfying, nutritionally balanced, and quick & easy one-course meal.

UPDATE: This recipe is also great with real meat, since the portion "stretches", making the 3 oz. serving go quite a long way.

I eat this meal a lot, as well. Good lookin' out!

I NEVER thought I'd like anything veggie because I had tried and tried veggie burgers and the like and thought they were all nasty.

Well, I tried MSF and decided that they ROCK! Even my husband, big meat eater, will ask for a bit when I'm eating a Chick patty. The Tomato & Basil Pizzaburger is the best too!

I just got their bacon and sausage but haven't tried it yet.

I just tried the new Fajita flavored MSF patties, and they were horrible!! The only ones I like are the pizza burgers and the chix.

01-31-2004, 01:52 PM
Yes I love their chik patties. they have a newer one out that is a Parmesan Ranch flaver that is awsome. I prefer them to real chicken actually, both texture and in flavor. I haven't tried the ribs or the hot wings yet but they are waining in the freezer! :)

We eat a LOT of veggie meat substitutes. We were vegetarian for years and now we eat meat, chicken fish perhaps 3 nights a week. But the rest of the time we rely heavily on vegetarian convenience foods.

If you see Quorn, please please give it a try, the nuggets are so tasty...we had the Quorn patties last night, also excellent, and Quorn tenders are like little chunks of chicken that can be thrown into anything. I make fajitas with them and make a mock chicken pot pie with them as well. They are just so convenient and their nutritional profile is excellent. They are not a soy product, they are made from a micro-protein, a mushroom relative, grown in vats, just delicious.

My kids are big Morning Star corn dog and hot dog fans. My husband is crazy for the spicy black bean burgers and I find the tomato basil pizza burgers to be heaven-sent. I just ate a couple of MS breakfast sausage patties, my 3 year old had 3.

The downside of all these convenience foods is that they are very high in sodium and I also find that too much soy binds us up, but its a very nice alternative to junk food and fast to put together. I get so excited everytime they put out something new. we had a bar-b-q chicken thing last week that was really good for instance, I made broccoli slaw and melted low fat cheese on them, baked sweet potatos rounded it out, nice meal, even the fussy kids would eat.

I love MSF spicy black bean veggie burgers, vegetarian bacon, and corn dogs. I have tried their chicken nuggets and patties, but much prefer the Boca spicy chicken patties.

My favorite "junk food" dinner is a Boca spicy chicken patty on a whole wheat bun, baked french fries and a big salad.

I love morning star! I especially like the chik nuggets. They look like chicken nuggets but they're filled with vegetables.

03-24-2004, 01:30 AM
MSF has no hydrogenated oil in most of their products. So I choose them over Boca almost every time.

Pizzaburgers & breakfast sausage patties are my favorites.
