Best vegetarian sausages?

I've been eyeing the 'Best sausage' thread with some envy and then had the idea to create one for best vegetarian sausage.

So far best I've come across are the Linda McCartney Vegetarian sausages that come in a small pack of 6.

Would love to find some better - any recommendations?

Linda McCartney are my fave still. I've been buying veggie alternatives for nearly 30 years now and they are probably the best I've come across. Tivall make nice veggie stuff and they do a reasonable hot dog style sausage and a lovely slicing sausage but I don't think they do a regular one which is a shame.

I've been vegetarian for two months now and I like the Linda McCartney sausages... but am open to alternatives...

i prefer her red onion and rosemary ones...also like glamorgan sausages which most supermarkets do...

to be fair, the quorn stuff seems to have improved these days...

I'm not sure the sausages have. I used to quite like them when they first appeared many years ago but they seem to have changed them to a more paste like consistency over recent years. I do like the frankfurter ones found vacuum packed in the chilled section though as well as the Quorn hot dogs Ikea sell, which are similar but I don't think quite the same.

+1 for Cauldron. Originally, we used to buy Linda McCartney's but they are a poor substitute for Cauldron.

I bake such Cauldron Sausages on a baking rack/tray for 20 Minutes at 200c Fan. There's no need to brush them will oil. I defy you to tell the difference between them and authentic Pork sausages.

Big fan of the LM red onion and rosemary sausages here - I am not vegetarian and enjoy these, sometimes have instead of meat based sausages.

Vegan here and I absolutely love the Cauldron Mediterranean vegetable sausages. They have a smoky chorizo taste that's very unique.

Just to update this the Richmond veggie sausages are rather good. I say that as a non-veg.

I'm quite a fan of Quorn hot dogs!

But my local Asda, which is the size of an aircraft hangar, hasn't had them for weeks now....:(

Sainsburys sell these ones now, or at least they did just prior to lockdown so I assume they still do. They aren't cheap but are very good indeed. It's over 30 years since I've had a meat hotdog but based on what I can remember, these are very convincing.

Being a vegan I have found The Beyond Sausages (same company as the burgers) to be probably the best I have had but lordy are they expensive at £5 for two. They are quite large though. :thumbsup:

I have tried the Beyond burger from Tesco given how favourable the reviews were but I wasn't overly impressed, perhaps I cooked them incorrectly. My absolute favourite food was the M&S garlic kiev, simply amazing. I'm not sure if they still do them, given the lock down I haven't been out. When Ocado start delivering M&S food I hope they're available!

Yeh, I can’t stand the Beyond Burgers. They leave an awful “creamy” after taste. The sausages are totally different. Can’t wait to try The Impossible Burger though. Not available in UK as yet.
