Im just now, trying the breakfast patties, they are 80 cals and most of it, protein. How do you all use them, any neat recipe ideas other than having them in a sandwich or with eggs? And, what would you count them as? I dont recall them being in "the book"....

I usually count those as 1/2 protein. I figure calorie wise, that may even be a little low. I have cut them up and put them in an omelete, and I love them on 1/2 english muffin w/ an egg. So good, huh? Have you tried their veggie burgers? I really like those as well. :D

I copied some one else on here and I eat the patties with a 2oz bagel and egg and sometimes cheese. It is very good enjoy!

I forgot you wanted to know how to count them. I usually count then as 1 P, which includes the egg & cheese to make it one and then 1 S for the bagel.

I just tried their veggie portabella mushroom burgers the other day - and they were great too!!!

Barb - yes, I use the patties alot as well. I usually count the two patties as 1 P. The burgers would probably be the same 2/1P.

I can't wait to try the spinach and artichoke bites - they're new

I've never tried these Morningstar products, but I will now! They sound good. I did visit their website this morning and those spinach and artichoke bites do look delicious.

Heather- you'll have to tell me how they are and how to count them. (i.e 1S/1V? any how many)

I'm on a breakfast burrito kick. I usually have it with just egg & cheese & hot sauce, but I added the Morningstar sausage this morning, along with a little onion. It was GOOD, and filling. I counted it as 1 P, 1/2D and 1 Fat. I only used one egg, and one patty.

Probably only the burgers and the breakfast patties are on plan-the rest aren't quite kosher and the COD will probably give you a hard time. The spinach artichoke thingies probably have too much fat and maybe sodium. . . But take the nutrional info into your center and see what they say. It's really hard to figure out how to count it properly-you kinda have to fudge it.

I was only asking about the breakfast patties, as I didnt know what they counted as.

Winkie - I just got some the other day - haven't tried them yet - but I'm definitely going to - As far as how to count them I'm not sure. There are several ways you could probably do it - I don't go to the COD - so I have no idea what they would do - but after really analyzing proteins, carbs and fat. I would say it would almost be one of either of these - 1P,1S,V,Fa or 1P,2S,Fa - The carbs within these are partly due to the breading and filing, but I'm sure some are coming from the vegetarian substance plus the actual veggies inside - I think the first way of counting it would be more appropriate and that would be based on the nutritional info that kristi posted......I'm no expert and I don't work for LAWL - so this is just my best guess........

I don't go to a COD as well, so i'll just stick to being on plan and just use the burgers and the breakfast patties. Thanks for your opinion Heather. I'll probably try them when I get closer to my goal. It'll be like a little treat for myself. By the way, for those burgers and breakfast patties, does it break down to 1P per pattie or 1P per 2 patties?

06-22-2006, 10:21 AM
I'm not totally sure - I would have to look - I think it is 2 = 1P

06-22-2006, 03:13 PM
I don't go to COD either. I have the red plan in front of me fm. when I did attend. The only Morningstar products they have are the Morningstar Sandwiches which count as a frozen dinner which is 1P and 1 starch.

According to my Purple plan book, 2 veggie burgers are 1P. I'm not sure about the Moringstar Patties, but they sound great. I'll ask when I go to WI tomorrow and see what they say.

Bocca also makes a REALLY good Chicken patty, unfortunately it counts as 1S & 1P, but boy is it good.

06-22-2006, 03:45 PM
joan, on those regular boca burgers does it count as 1P for 2 patties?
