What’s a Burger Without a Great Bun??

With BBQ season just around the corner, I’ve been thinking about burgers, hot dogs, buns…and healthier alternatives for all of them.

Today at my product review blog, I’m posting a review of Sol Cuisine Mushroom Rice Burgers.

This was a product I liked  until I received an email from their company yesterday, with some “details” about their production process that I am NOT impressed or happy with.

Stop by My Real Life Reviews to read the full review. Suffice to say, sometimes even reading labels and checking information online is NOT enough. 😦  This company has lost a long-time customer, that’s for sure.

On a more positive note, it’s definitely doable to make a lot of the “basics” like veggie and (yes…) meat burgers and buns to go with them, from scratch.

These are my all-time fav burger buns:

Bread-Machine Rosemary Flax Buns


and not just because they are my own recipe. 😉

If you’ve never made your own burger and hot dog buns, this is definitely an easy way to get started. And if you aren’t a fan of rosemary, you can definitely leave it out.

A burger is JUST a burger, without a great bun to go with it!

I’m amazed at how many people who seem to be so particular about the burgers they buy or make , spend lots of $$$ on all sorts of toppings, but don’t pay any attention to the quality of buns they use; usually ending up with the cheapo, white-bread, soggy kind  that are absolutely tasteless!

It’s not right and it’s not necessary. 😉

Here’s the link to the complete recipe for these delicious and oh so easy to make buns

If you give these buns a try, do let me know how you like them!

And on the topic of all things burger, what is your fav, absolutely MUST have topping ?

Mine is: dill pickles, sliced very thin and lots of them. Yummm….

Happy Baking and BBQ! 🙂

PS: On a completely unrelated topic, I am testing the waters with another blog idea (just what I need, another blog) 😉

This would be a weekly creative prompt blog.

What’s In Your Veggie Burgers???

I did some extensive reading online this week re: the manufacturing of commercial veggie burgers; while preparing to write a review about a popular brand. What I found was disturbing to say the least.

You can read my full review and links to other reports at: My Real Life Reviews, Yves Prima Veggie Burgers.

On a happier note and as I said in this review; I will be sharing a new homemade veggie burger recipe here soon. Delish and easy to make. 🙂 Stay tuned!

And keep reading those labels. It is so worth it.
