Alright! So I already did a review of the original Cluck’nMOO burgers, which you can view here, and I absolutely loved them. So the company approached me and asked if I wanted to try their new  burgers, made with Kale, so I happily obliged.

I cooked these babies up with some broccoli on the side, and some cheese on top. They were relatively easy to cook- I defrosted them first in the refrigerator, and then pan-fried them over medium heat with a little nonstick spray. They were super juicy when I cut into them to see if they were done- juices literally poured out all over the pan. I had to remember, I could NOT eat these “a little pink” because they were made with chicken, not just beef, and raw chicken is a big no no!

Here is them all cooked up! You can see the tiny pieces of green kale on the burger with no cheese. (except that giant green blob on the bottom…that’s a piece of broccoli, hah!)

And here is a close up of it cut

The kale is relatively undetectable in the burger.  This can be seen 1 of 2 ways. A positive, if you don’t like vegetables, but want to eat vegetables in the form of meat (haha). A negative, if you really wanted the taste of kale to be present. The color dissipates as you cook it, so only a few green specs were shown on the cooked burger.

HOWEVER, the burger is still awesome. Super juicy, tender, and flavorful. It tasted like a 90% lean hamburger (or cheeseburger…). The chicken flavor I thought was not really detected, but in my opinion was still a good thing, since it lowered the fat and calories of the burger, since beef is relatively fatty if you want it to be flavorful/juicy.  There is 11 grams of fat, 4 saturated, and 190 calories per burger. I easily ate 2, one with cheese, one without, with some low sugar ketchup (I’m a diabetic), and a big side of broccoli with a smear of butter, and called it dinner! Delish! 4.5 stars

I received these burgers for free from the company. This is a sponsored post. In no way, shape or form are my thoughts altered. This review is 100% unbiased.

If there is one food that I love…it is beef! I used to avoid beef like the plague…for whatever reason…but since I reintroduced it back into my diet a little over a year ago, I can’t get enough! Meatballs, burgers, I love it all. However, beef usually pays a price in my diet. It is either super delicious, and high in fat and calories, or, still tasty but rather dry, and thus lower in fat and calories.

So, I was excited when Cluck’n Moo offered me to try their Grass Fed Beef & Chicken Burgers. Not to be confused as two separate products…they are one burger, meshed together! These burgers are made without any antibiotic use, have 52% less fat than the USDA standard for ground beef  and 34% less calories than the  USDA standard for ground beef (according to the package).  I was super excited to try these!

By the time I got the package, it was in a cooler but partially thawed out, so I figured why not cook them now? I fryed them up in a frying pan over medium low heat with some non stick cooking spray. I did not add any seasonings except a sprinkle of sea salt. I noticed that the burger raw was very soft.

While cooking, I cut it open to see if it was done, and juices just POURED out! I’ve never seen such a juicy burger before!
Naturally, I cooked it a little longer. Normally a little pink would not bother me for a burger BUT you have to remember that there is raw chicken in this burger as well, and raw chicken is a HUGE no no!

After it was done, I put a piece of cheese on top.
The burger did shrink a little bit after cooking, as most do, and ended up being about the size of a little bit bigger than my palm. I had it plain, no bun, with some veggies, and sorry NOT sorry, I ended up eating 2 in one sitting. These were GOOD!

They are super tender, and very moist. It honestly tastes exactly like it was 100% beef. You cannot tell there is chicken in it, and I love that. It was not dry or tough at all. It had the flavor of an 85-90% lean beef burger, but was definitely more moist. I knew it was a hit when someone in my house came downstairs and asked for a hamburger…he had no idea!

Overall, I am giving these 4 1/2 stars. I love that they are grass fed, no antibiotic use, and lower in calories and fat. There are still around 11 grams of fat per patty,with 4 of that saturated, so that deducts half a star, however, I would rather eat some fat in a burger and scrimp on fat elsewhere in my diet. DEEE-lish!!!
