Trader Joe’s Vegan Sausage

How much do we love Trader Joe’s? Tons…especially when new vegan items keep showing up in the store.

Our most recent discovery is their Meatless Breakfast Sausage Patties, which are absolutely fabulous.

One reason we love these is because they are easily microwavable (yes, we are that lazy), unlike the also-delicious Beyond Meat patties. So, you can have your breakfast sausage within minutes, and the patties come out perfectly — they’re a bit greasy, like actual sausage; a bit crumbly; and beautifully flavored (flavors include sage, fennel, garlic, and onion). Their main ingredients are soy and wheat gluten, so they have plenty of protein and a great texture.

We found a hint of sweetness, evoking the maple flavor of many sausages, but it was not overwhelming; these are by far more savory. If you like spicy, the Beyond Meat spicy patties are wonderful — but for an everyday fantastic vegan sausage that can be ready from the freezer in about 60 seconds, we highly recommend giving these a try.
