Are Veggie Dogs and Burgers Evil Doppelgangers of the Real Thing?

What do you think? Love them veggie versions of hot dogs and hamburgers? Where do you get your favorites from? A particular store? Restaurant?

My favorite veggie burgers come from restaurants that make their own at the spot, not just buy frozen them in bulk and nuked to they're supposedly edible.

Pickle Shack, Brooklyn is easily my favorite veggie burger place. Not sure where to get a decent veggie dog (restaurant).

What brand(s) of grocery store frozen veggietized chicken patties, burgers, etc... is/are your faves?

@tsarstepan,
I don't understand the point of fake meat.

If you want to eat vegetables (and I do), then eat vegetables.

It's a pretty simple concept.

@ehBeth,
I'm an omnivore. Whatever tastes good (and relatively affordable).

Wait until the lab grown faux meat comes out (and hopefully perfected). It might be a great help in terms of curbing climate change when lowering the dependence on the beef industry. That said, the faux meat has to be healthy, tasty, and far from insanely pricey.

A really good veggie burger (in this day and age) is basically a fun change of pace. This coming from a burger snob. I love all types of burgers.

I ate (all unknowing) a veggies burger once't . . . I was being polite. My hostess asked if I had enjoyed it, so I said I had, so as nto to be churlish. She said "Ha!" triumphantly, and told me it was a veggies burger. I felt like saying "So that's why it was so god-awful."

Veggies burgers truly are evil.

@Setanta,
You gotta watch those compliments. Most often, it gets you more of the same.

Are beef hamburgers the real thing? This is the only part of a cow that looks like a hamburger.

Of course A lot has to do with the amount of processing. The trouble with veggie burgers, which I do like, is the high amount of processing and the high price.

Ground beef from feedlot cattle is cheap, but the conditions they are raised under is not only sick but sickening. The cattle are raised under filthy, disease-ridden, and inhumane conditions. If you saw how they were raised you would vomit, and you never would eat beef again. A better name for feedlot beef is Auschwitz beef.

However, there is grass-fed beef available, and the cattle are raised under humane and healthy conditions. The grass-fed ground beef will cost two times as much as Auschwitz beef, but the answer is to just eat less of it. Most of us eat much more concentrated protein than we need.

@coluber2001,
That part of the cow just fell right out! It wouldn't be at all cruel to the animal to eat that!

@tsarstepan,
One reason that keeps the cost of meat from being any higher than it already is is the almost exclusive employment of cheap labor by illegal immigrants in slaughterhouses and meat packing plants. Notice that Trump hasn't cleared these places of illegal immigrants, which would raise the price of meat substantially.

I noticed the phrase in the article, "the watchful eye of the USDA". The USDA only spot-checks meat in the slaughterhouses anymore, and the task of meat inspection has fallen upon the illegal alien employees. Meat inspection by laymen can be learned and somewhat adequately performed. However, employment by illegal aliens is so tenuous that if they start rejecting too much meat, then their employment and even their right to live in this country are in jeopardy.

If eating lab-grown meat seems repulsive or sickening, then consider that many vegetarians feel the same way about the filthy, inhumane, and pathogenic conditions in which animals are now raised.
