Field Roast breakfast sausage is a protein-dense vegan side dish for a tofu scramble or potato hash. Prepare them with just a quick sizzle in a pan.
I’ve been a big fan of Field Roast sausages for years.
I especially enjoy their apple sage sausages on the grill in the summertime. They’re great with a hearty helping of sauerkraut and thick layer of stone-ground mustard.
And I can’t tell you how many weekends I’ve wished we were still within a five minute drive to Tony’s Darts Away. That’s where they serve up beer, house-made potato chips, and Field Roast sausages, cooked on a separate vegan-only grill. They come with all kinds of interesting toppings like roasted garlic and mango melon salsa.
So when I heard that Field Roast had come out with a new breakfast sausage, I was eager to try it.
Field Roast breakfast sausage
When I was at Whole Foods last week, I found the breakfast sausages in the refrigerated case next to the other Field Roast sausages, burgers, roasts, and frankfurters. (The celebration roast is great in a vegan banh mi. The frankfurters are perfect for vegan chili dogs!)
The mini sausages come 12 to a pack. It’s a sweet little size that reminded me of the toy groceries I had in my play kitchen as a child.
Like the other Field Roast sausages, the ingredients are similar to the kind of things I use when making vegan sausages at home, except I didn’t have to make them. I make loads of things from scratch – seitan included – but sometimes it’s nice to let someone else do the work.
Cooking them simply involves adding a little oil to a pan. Then give them a brief sauté until browned, being careful not to overcook.
Since the breakfast sausages have the flavor of apple and maple, they were similar in taste to the apple sage sausages that are a favorite, but with the added faint sweetness of maple syrup.
They are slightly more delicate in texture than their toothsome, full-sized sausages. They have a lovely smoky sweet flavor.
They’re also a nice side dish with breakfast tacos.
Have you tried the breakfast sausages from Field Roast? If so, what did you think?
FYI: I was not compensated for this review, and I paid for the sausages myself. All of the opinions are totally my own.
