Lol. I love it. 

Boss, the patty at White Castle was not nearly as red as the one you had, it really did have the texture like cooked through ground beef though and it tasted pretty good with that smoked cheddar.  Honestly the texture was almost too cooked ground beefy because mentally i thought i was going to bite into one of those pieces of ground beef fat and lose my appetite. I seriously thought that someone was messing with me and gave me a beef patty (the patties for the impossibly silders are the size of 3 regular slider patties)...  

Here's a pic from the innerwebz that looks like mine did (I inhaled mine too fast, it was my 16 hr fasting break meal and post workout... )

Select White Castle locations in NYC, Jersey, and Chicago are serving up Impossible Burger sliders.  I tried 'em out today.  They come with a smoked cheddar cheese, and I know I've been trying to avoid cheese, but holy cow I want to eat a crave case of those things.

The restaurant took the pic, so the props is for them.  GIP those are vegan sausages, here's the link from the company that makes them: http://beyondmeat.com/products/view/beyond-sausage-brat 

  • The Hot Italian, topped with peppers, onions and hot mustard
  • The Sweet Italian, with sweet caponata relish and Italian parsley
  • The Bratwurst, served with sauerkraut, caramelized onions and parsley

 

My friend got the inside scoop from Beyond last night (at that bar). They are apparently going for a big push to get the sausages in stores and restaurants around Chicago (sausage capital of the US?), and I am totally ok with that.  I don't usually go outta my way for the vegetarian replacement meals much anymore, but to go to a place(especially a sports bar) and have the option of something veggie that isn't a salad, some fried appetizer, or black bean burger is always nice.  And it's a great alternative to bring to summer BBQs when everything revolves around the grill.

HOLY MOLY! The bar down the street from me just started carrying these last night.

They serve a variety of good ole beef burgers, but they also already have a dressed up Beyond burger and deep fried vegan tacos! They are a sports bar too, which you may think ok well that's normal, but I live in a (now) trendy, hipster neighborhood that is anti tv's in bars for whatever reason. My go to dive bar that had TVs and cheap beer was bought out and shortly there after shut down like 4 years ago.  This new place has an outdoor patio with fireplaces and they already love my dogs.... I've found my new home guys. *wipes a tear of joy off cheek*

Look awesome GIP! I'm not about to be the food police here, but if anyone asks cheese/dairy/eggs qualifies as vegetarian.  People who don't eat anything that comes from animals or use anything that "exploits" animals (like honey or wearing leather) call themselves vegan.  I just like to eat plants.  +1 for Dee-Roo sauces... so good, need to get more ASAP.
