Pure Farmland Plant Based Breakfast Patties review

The Pure Farmland line of products apparently launched in September of 2019 – as part of the push into plant based proteins from Smithfield – the famous pork producing giant.

I have to admit the launch passed me by and I only very recently spotted these on the shelves of my local Smith’s/Kroger. This 12 ounce pack of eight patties clocked in at $6.99. A little more than pork based breakfast patties for sure. As you can see from the picture above, they certainly look like the real deal. So much so at first glance my wife even had to double check if they were meat free.

Here’s the product cooked up:

Right off the bat these became my favorite meat free breakfast sausage. Almost from the first bite. In fact, I think I might prefer these over many pork based breakfast sausage!

The texture is very similar to pork, theres a meaty chew which is quite satisfying. The exterior crisps and caramelizes nicely too – I used my air fryer for speed and a better finish too. When cooked they’re also noticeably less greasy than a pork based sausage, which is no bad thing.

The taste is initially very familiar to that of pork. The maple seasoning here isn’t overpowering, just subtle sweet which I really appreciated. Moreover, all too often companies go heavy handed on the breakfast herbs like rosemary. These instantly dominate and take over. Not here, the seasoning was again subtle and savory.

On the end of the palate there’s certainly a slight hint of artificial-something, which we couldn’t quite put out finger on. This turned my wife off, it was almost imperceptible to me. I wolfed them all down as fast as I could.

Are Pure Farmland Plant Based Breakfast Patties any good?

Yes, I absolutely love these. They are very similar to processed pork sausage patties in look, texture and taste. The seasonings here are subtle and never overpowering, though there is a slight artificiality to the flavor on the final taste. These are currently our favorite plant based breakfast sausage.

  1. let me see if I can find a link for the links, so I can be fair

    the links, close to identical to these, are gruesome

    the taste is bland and uninteresting and little offputting, but if you spice it up, and especially if you sauce it up (hot tomato, e.g.), it helps

    what is most dismaying and unappealing is the mealy texture

    whatever it makes up in alleged health is offset by the whopping sodium bomb and saturated fat (coconut oil !)

    this might have been the month when they said Let’s let the MBAs w no food training or even cooking experience specify a product

  2. I have tried these and they are wonderful, the only problem is that Kroger and Instacart claim to have them, but they DO NOT AND WILL CALL AND WANT TO SUBSTITUTE FOR THEM.

    Let me know where they are available in the Allen, Texas area.
