Are Field Roast Breakfast Sausage any good?
Definitely! You can cook these whole as a quick and healthy breakfast sausage or crumble them down with a form – and use as a ground sausage sub too. Whatever you decide on they have a fun and subtle sweet flavor from the maple syrup that never overpowers.
Of all the vegan products that come across my
desk kitchen counter Field Roast is one producer I always look forward to; their products are usually some of the best in their class, and I can’t recall a time they’ve ever let me down.
I’m happy to report that the Field Roast Breakfast Sausage are another great buy, worthy of your time, money and calories. If anything these modest breakfast links are similar to their bigger siblings, the sage and apple sausage. The difference here is the petite size and the addition of maple syrup – that really shines through in the final tasting. The flavor is subtly sweet without ever becoming cloying.
Their more modest size also has the benefit of making them far quicker to heat and eat – taking just a few moments. See more on that below.
Field Roast Breakfast Sausage – what’s in the packet?
Twelve breakfast size links are shrink-wrapped inside the plastic wrapper the exterior cardboard envelop holds. Once you open the pack, you can’t reseal it, so you might want to transfer the links to a suitable container in your refrigerator.
Field Roast Breakfast Sausage
Obviously with a name like breakfast sausage, the first thing you’re likely to do with these is eat them for breakfast – duh!
That said, with a little elbow grease you can break these down into a semi crumbled state. I actually found it easy to part cook them, then smush with a fork and finish off cooking. At any rate, they make for a great ground sausage sub, imparting a gentle sweetness to any dish. Here, I broke them down, cooking with a little taco seasoning then used with beans in an enchilada with a subtly sweet twist:
Field Roast Breakfast Sausage – ingredients, nutrition and cooking instructions
These are literally just a heat and serve product so cooking is a cinch. As mentioned above, their more diminutive nature means they cook really fast – perfect for when you want to get your morning calories quick.
Field Roast Breakfast Sausage – what’s a fair price
If memory serves the $4.99 I paid for these was a sale price, and the product usually retails a little higher. This was from Whole Foods. At $5 they feel like a good value, but much more than that I’m not sure I’d bite – literally and figuratively.
