Meatless Fatty

  1. i know no ones gonna believe me but I made a fatty without using meat. yea yea i know, im not a man, real men eat meat blah blah blah.

    I have friends who are vegetarian, and I do enjoy vegetarian food. But mainly I liked the challenge.

    This company called Gimme Lean makes soy sausage. They sell it in a log like JD. I flattened it out, put in some monterey jack cheese, and rolled that baby up. I rolled it in a mesh disposable grill grate because I was afraid it would fall apart. I was wrong, it held together better than the turkey and pork fatty I did. Great stuff and no fat. put your prejudices aside and try it. If I didn't tell you it was soy, you wouldnt know.

    You beat me to it 13spicerub, I have been planning on trying out a completely vegetarian fattie for a while now but the ingredients are way more expensive than real meat so I haven't bothered.
    My Dad is a vegetarian and I always wondered if he would enjoy that. Now, thanks to your review, I'll give it a try.
    Thanks for posting!
     
  6. You must have some pretty laid back vegetarian friends the ones I know I wouldn't eat that because it was contaminated by the meat products on the same plate lol.
     
  7. I have no predjudice against veggie-only dishes. However, I do think vegetarians are weirdos [​IMG]

    But that said, yeah - I've ordered an all veggie sammich or a veggie pizza once in a while...if the mood struck me.

    I have to admit that it looked a little strange to me at first, like - not as appetizing in my opinion as real meat, but if it tastes good - sign me up!

    Well . . . I bet I would know when I tasted it. And it certainly looks different.

    Gimme Lean . . . that's funny! [​IMG]

    But all that aside . . . [​IMG] for coming up with something your friends can enjoy too.

    I don't mind a veggie sandwich or pizza once in awhile. Heck I might even try the soy sausage . . . except I tried those Boca burgers with the fake grill marks once and they were disgusting IMHO. But since I battle cholesterol, it may be worth a try.[​IMG]
