Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links review

The Beyond Meat line keeps on expanding and expanding, which is good news as far as I’m concerned. When it comes to plant-based options, the brand is one of the stronger performers with not many bloopers in their line up.

Here, eight links come to a packet, you might find them frozen or in the fresh section of the refrigerated aisle. Either way, inside the cardboard exterior is a plastic wrapped cardboard sleeve. Once you pierce the plastic you can’t reseal. Bought frozen they will defrost overnight in the fridge, or if your microwave has a gentler defrost mode, about 60 seconds there.

Cooking: The package recommends baking or frying but I think any method would be fine to be honest, grill, broil, deep fry. I’ve pan fried and air fried them both to great results. The latter is of course less many, like most Beyond products, they’re greasy little guys.

Taste and texture: Do you like regular Beyond Sausages? Because lets be honest, that’s what these are – albeit in a smaller format. The texture is pretty much identical to a regular pre-cooked pork based breakfast sausage. The skin develops a lovely crackly charred finish, the interior meat has a meaty chew; it’s all rather remarkable compared to where meat free dining was 10-15 years ago.

As Beyond haven’t really taken any steps to majority alter the seasoning (to my taste) over a regular Beyond Sausage, the illusion doesn’t extend to the taste. That’s fine by me, I enjoy the regular Beyond Sausages.

Overall: Part of me wants to chide Beyond for not trying to tweak the formulation just a small amount with this one, maybe a hint of rosemary or extra kick of black pepper? The flip side is that they’re quite enjoyable and get a thumbs up from me.

Are Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links any good?

In truth these are nothing more than downsized Beyond Sausages. If you like those, you will love these.
