How did we do the vegan breakfast sausage taste test?
It was really quite simple.
We cooked each breakfast sausage package according to the packaged instructions and then ate them as close to the finishing time as possible for the most accuracy.
We were looking for mostly taste and texture.

Morningstar Farms Veggie Original Sausage Patties Review

Meatless Farm Plant-Based Breakfast Patties Review
Thoughts: Andrew spit this one out and Larisha struggled to get it down. It was really really gross and it tastes more gross the longer you chew. We could’t figure out what the taste really was, but we didn’t like it.

Jack & Annie’s Savory Breakfast Jack Sausage
Thoughts: Larisha really liked this one. Andrew said that it tasted like fast food sausage that had been sitting a little too long. It is very thin which neither of us liked. It had a great sausage flavor and the texture and juiciness was nice.

Impossible Sausage Made From Plants Review
Thoughts: Both versions of Impossible are VERY oily. It is nice that you get to shape your own here because you can determine the size; however, we know that when you are looking for something quick that could also be a downside. The taste and texture of these are great. It does taste more like sausage than many of the other ones; however, it does taste like there is something else mixed in – like another type of meat. There was grease even while cooking making it the most realistic that we remember. The spicy one is pretty spicy- the spiciest out of the four spicy version.

Hilary’s Organic Plant Based Meatless Breakfast Sausage Review
Thoughts: These are great for people who need a healthier option or need a Top 8 Free option. These are not our very, especially the spicy. They were dry and very crumbly. That being said the Apple Maple is much better. The spicy one is much spicier than the other spicy options.

Gardein Plant Based Breakfast Saus’ge Patties Review
Thoughts: While we love Gardein brand overall, the sausage was a little bit of a miss for us. The spicy version was more of a chipotle spice. It is softer than some of the other ones, but the texture was pretty good overall. It doesn’t taste much like sausage though. The original version Larisha compared to a hot dog taste and Andrew said like bratwurst. Overall, not a fan.

Fieldroast Plant Based Breakfast Sausage Patties Classic Recipe Review
Thoughts: The size of this one was one of the biggest ones that we had tried. It was hard to cut through this compared to some of the other ones. It was also pretty dry compared to the others and the texture was tough to chew. There was a weird artificial taste that overall we just didn’t like.

Beyond Meat Beyond Breakfast Sausage Plant-Based Patties Review
Thoughts: For both varieties the texture is great, but they are very small. The spicy one has a great mild spicy, it’s not overly spicy. The original one is also great for the same reason. There’s a little chewiness that Larisha thought could be improved on, but ultimately she thought this was the best one.

Who was the winner?
All that waiting just to get here and see.
The Beyond and Impossible were our favorites. Beyond for Larisha and Impossible for Andrew.
For a great “healthier” version the Apple Maple from Hilary’s is a great option though more crumbly than traditional sausage.
Whole Foods and Jack and Annie’s (for Larisha) were also great options.
We would NOT recommend Meatless Farm or Morningstar Farms.
