MorningStar's Tomato & Basil Pizza Burger

While the Tomato & Basil Pizza Burgers are only remotely "burgers," they are pretty good. If you want to know what a tomato & basil pizza burger should taste like, pick up a box of these. However, taste is not the problem.

The problem with these "burgers" is that they really don't fit into the mold of a regular burger. Do you put them on a bun? I guess you're supposed to because they're round. What about condiments? The usual fare - cheese, ketchup, mustard, lettuce - aren't typically things you find on a pizza. So after I baked my pizza burger in the toaster-oven for about 8 minutes, I just sat staring at it, wondering what I should do with it. Much like someone stumped while doing a jigsaw puzzle, I decided to consult the box. The box shows a pizza burger with a concoction of olives, diced tomatoes, mushrooms and some sort of grated cheese on top. I wasn't about to duplicate those toppings just for this little patty, so I decided to go the simple route. I slapped the patty on a bun with some lettuce and made myself a little marinara dipping pool. It turned out to be a pretty good combo.

I would definitely get these again, just as a good change of pace from the typical alt-burgers.

I totally agree. These are the best.
If you put one of these in a bun topped by some low fat cheese or veggie cheese and with a dolup of sauce, it's like eatting an eggplant cutlet without all the fat.
