Every so often, we like to prepare meals with Beyond Meat.  I know it’s not for everyone and some aren’t willing to try it but if you are curious, I highly recommend eating it at least once.  Our latest creation is a Beyond Meat Patty Melt.  It was amazing!

Beyond Meat has a similar texture to ground meat but I think it’s a bit moister and juicier.  I also think it has a slightly nutty flavor.  In this case you will know you aren’t eating meat but if you are making other dishes, Tacos or Sloppy Joe’s for example, you won’t taste a difference after adding all the spices and sauces.  The “patty” in this recipe is seasoned Beyond Meat.  You will get the full texture and taste of the product.  Personally, I think it’s great.  Andrew even liked it!

The recipe can be found here.

Start by dividing the Beyond Meat into 3 equally sized balls and flatten into oval shaped patties.  This is because you want the meat to be semi-sandwich shaped because you are making sandwiches.  Season both sides with salt and pepper.

Heat oil (oil type of choice) in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the patties and cook on each side for 5-6 minutes or until cooked through and an internal temperature of 165 degrees F is reached.

Butter one side of each slice of bread.  Use a sourdough bread or other vegan bread if you follow a plant-based diet.  And make sure to use plant-based butter.  Heat a separate skillet over medium heat.  Place the bread, butter side down, in the skillet.  Add a Tbsp of the Thousand Island Dressing to each slice of bread and spread to the sides.  Add a slice of cheese on top of the dressing.  I like to use Gouda, but any flavor will work.  Again, make sure to use plant-based cheese if necessary.  Continue to heat until the cheese is melted, and the bread is toasted then remove from the heat.

Place the cooked patties on top of 3 pieces of bread and add another slice on top to create sandwiches.  Slice, serve, and enjoy!

The recipe can be found here.

The “meat” is super flavorful and juicy, and it pairs well with the Gouda.  The bread is crisp on the outside and perfectly toasted.  The dressing adds a hint of zest to each bite.  It really is a wonderful (and warm) sandwich that can be enjoyed any time of year because it’s pretty light vs being filling.  I hope you give it a try!

Happy Cooking!
