Heinz veggie sausage and beans. They were delicious, especially on hot buttered crumpets. :(

Oh yes. A couple of poached eggs on top and you have a meal fit for a king.
Not so sure about veggie sausages though.

I'm missing them and I have never heard of them, I imagine the sugar in the beans goes well with crumpets.

Hungry now :cry:

I made my neice throw up describing what went into a sausage. Something her mother still hasn't forgiven me for.

What's wrong with saying 'Everything but the squeak'?

I've started eating veggie sausages as they are lower in fat.. and still taste almost like the real deal (It does help that the normal sausages at work are rank so i'm not missing much)

you are missing quite a lot by not eating 'normal' sausages :shock:

Have you tried the veggie frankfurter or 'not dog'? They taste the same as the ones made from intestines. Apparently.

'Vegetarian hot dogs are sometimes eaten by non-vegetarians because they are lower in fat, calories, and contain no cholesterol, and little to no saturated fat, compared to hot dogs from animal meats. Therefore they are preferred by people following a low calorie, low fat or low cholesterol diet. Unlike traditional home-made meat sausages, the casing is not made of intestine' Wicki. p

Have been eating Quorn nuggets and they're not bad, pinch of salt, some chips, beans - not bad at all. That said without the sides they're about as tasty as a damp sock.

I'm a veggie, but Mrs DB isn't. But she now much prefers my veggie sausages to her usual meaty ones because of all the fat that's in them. I either cook Quorn ones in a little olive oil, or just do them in the oven. Very nice.

Don't get me wrong. I love a proper sausage too, :shock: which is why I frequent places like this but there was a nice taste to the Heinz veggie sausages that other brands don't have - hence the title. :D

The real baffling thing to me is why vegeterian products are made and marketed to resemble meat.

Isn't the whole point that you are against eating meat and therefor all veggie products should be made and marketed in fruit and vegetable shapes ???

A veggie burger - thats salad in a bun - right!!!!

I think you hit the nail on the head when you said products and marketing, not really about food is it?

I like the idea that veggie products should be fruit shaped, bright yellow curved sausages would be great :D
