Ahhhhh….summer dinners! I love summer meals for all the terrific, delicious, in-season fruits and veggies that you can eat, but I hate summer dinners because I hate cooking dinner in the summer. I don’t like heating up the kitchen when it’s hot, or cooking when I’m tired from a trip to the beach or the playground or wherever we’ve been all day. On nights like these I want to get in and out of the kitchen as fast as possible so I can relax with my family. One of my favorite dishes to make on nights like these is MorningStar Farms Buffalo Chik sandwiches.
Zach and I have been making these for easy dinners since before the kids were born. That’s more than 10 years for those of you who are doing math in your head right now. They are dead simple and hecka tasty. We like the Chik Patties from MorningStar Farms in particular because they are low in fat and calories and they’re an easy way to go meatless. In the years since we started making these, MorningStar Farms came out with a buffalo-flavored version of their Chik Patties, but we like to stick with the original ones because we have more control over the spice (and we can leave the spicy sauce off altogether for my youngest).
Here’s what you’ll need to make these:
- MorningStar Farms Chik Patties Original
- whole wheat buns
- buffalo wing sauce
- gorgonzola or other bleu cheese
- lettuce leaves and tomato slices (optional)
Yes — only four ingredients! So easy!
And here’s how to make them:
Heat the Chik Patties according to package directions. When the patties are heated through toss them with a little buffalo wing sauce. Place the patties on the buns along with lettuce and tomato (or leave it off if the kids are picky). Sprinkle a little crumbled bleu cheese on top and close them up with the top bun.
I like to serve these with celery sticks for the buffalo wings feel and some kind of salad.
