I love to start my morning with a flavorful and delicious Vegan Breakfast Sausage Pattie. This recipe is a family favorite, and you may be surprised at how simple they are to make.
These vegan sausages are crispy on the outside and have a softer chewy texture on the inside. Let me warn you; I have found it practically impossible to just eat one 🙂
Plus, one of the best parts of this sausage recipe is that it is naturally gluten-free. So I hope all my gluten-free friends enjoy this gluten-free recipe.
Starting the Day Off Right:
In my mind, starting the day off with a vegan breakfast sausage pattie sets the day off to a great start. Who does not want to wake up to a savory breakfast filled with protein and nutrients to get you going for the day?
The beauty of this recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer. That way when I get up in the morning, it’s just a matter of heating them. This is a game-changer! It saves me a ton of time and I have something substantial to eat in the morning. A win-win situation for sure!
When I heat them in a pan with a wonderful unique glaze, the sizzling sound and smell make even the sleepiest member of my family wake up and take notice.
I love vegan sausages, but it cannot hold a candle to how much my Dad loves sausages. I would even go as far as to say that he is a vegan sausage connoisseur.
So I was thrilled when he gave me the thumbs up on this recipe.
About a year ago, I shared another sausage recipe on my blog. Click Here to watch the video. I was surprised to find it to be the most popular video on my YouTube channel, so I know there must be other vegan sausage connoisseurs out there.
Let’s Talk Ingredients:
Here are some of the Ingredients that I get questions about the most. I am including links to Amazon to hopefully make it easier for you to find the products. (I earn a small commission and it doesn’t cost you a penny more!)
TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)
The texture is an essential thing in a sausage recipe, and TVP adds so much texture and chew to these sausages. Plus, it is a wonderful thing for gluten-free people or anyone who want to cut back on gluten as it is entirely gluten-free.
Nutritional Yeast Flakes:
Nutritional Yeast Flakes is an ingredient that we use quite often. It is a good source of B vitamins and adds a nice cheesy-like flavor to dishes.
Better Than Bouillon:
Better Than Bouillon rounds out the flavor of these sausages. I add it to many of my recipes to give more of a base flavor and then I build from there.
Bragg Liquid Aminos:
Bragg Liquid Aminos is a Natural Soy Sauce Alternative. It tastes amazing and has all the essential amino acids. You can also use soy sauce in this recipe, but I have to say I love the flavor that the Bragg Liquid Amino adds to these sausages.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. In my option, and definitely in my family’s: “These are winners”:)Print
