Last week when I stopped at Meijer to pick up wedding cards, I had a strong, overpowering urge to check out the frozen foods. I was delighted to see a new item – Qrunch Burgers! They were on sale for half the price I paid at Horrock’s, so I couldn’t resist buying a box. I think it was meant to be.
You can see the spices in it. With the Italian sub I made earlier still on my mind, I decided to try something similar with the Qrunch burger. I whipped up a batch of my vegan mozzarella tahini sauce, and turned two slices of plain Ezekiel bread into delicious garlic bread (lots of margarine on each side, lots of garlic on each side…toast it!).
Preheat the oven to 375.
I figured since it looks well seasoned, I didn’t actually need a marinara sauce, just lots and lots of fresh tomato. No spices added, other than what’s in the mozzarella sauce.
more sauce, a bunch of slices of tomato, more sauce. On the other piece of toast, I just smeared it with the sauce, piled on the tomatoes, added more sauce. I used one roma tomato.
Place the sandwich halves in the oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and the tomatoes are tender.
The burger was even spicier than I expected, it reminded me of Italian sausage. I bet this would be great chopped up and added to pasta in place of meatballs. Probably the best $3 I’ve spent in a long time. The fool who wrote the commercial cracking jokes about “quee-no” burgers needs to try one of these!
