I had been reading about the new plant based burgers and sausages from Beyond Meat and The Impossible Burger and decided to see what all of the fuss was about. I finally found some sausages from Beyond Meat at one of the stores in town and decided to give them a try.
One thing that had me excited about the sausage was that it wasn’t another attempt at making soybeans edible. In fact, there is absolutely no soy products in these things.
Straight out of the package they didn’t look too impressive but I didn’t hold that against them as a lot of folks say that about me 🙂
I got these guys on my grill and let them cook at around 325F. After a few minutes I opened the lid (I love to peek!) and was greeted with a wonderful surprise….the sausages were dripping grease and sizzling away just like a sausage should!
Once the sausages hit 165F I took them out and put them on a bun with a little mustard.
Me and a buddy tore into these at the same time and looked at each other with a little bit of amazement. The sausages did not taste exactly like a traditional pork based Hot Italian Sausage but they were extremely tasty!
These plant based sausages get a big thumbs up from me! They made me happy!
Yeah, Yeah….I know a lot of hard core carnivores are going to thumb their noses at this. That’s okay…I know what their arteries look like.
Here’s to keeping your mind open to new ideas and trying things outside of your normal routine!
