Gardein Original Breakfast Saus’ge Patty Review

I don’t think there has been a product from Gardein I’ve tried that I haven’t liked. I don’t know how, but they keep coming up with awesome new foods to try, and I’m always game!

So, Gardein actually has 2 kinds of these breakfast sausage patties, they have these plain/original ones, and they have maple ones. They taste exactly the same, but the maple one has maple syrup on it, so this is going to be like a combined 2-in-1 review.

These sausage patties are pretty small, which I like, because they fit perfectly on an English muffin. They have what I believe would be a ‘classic’ sausage taste, and have a good consistency, as well. They aren’t too squishy, and have a good bite to them. Pan frying them with some oil gives them a nice ‘crust’ on the outside, so they get a bit more crunch to them. I don’t know if you’d be able to tell by the consistency if they weren’t meat, but from what I remember, they’re pretty close. (Though I’m at 5 years vegan now, so my memory may be fading)

The only problem with these – as with most vegan products – is the amount that comes in the bag. 1 pack only comes with 5, which leads to disappointment when you open it, because they’re so small, so it makes the bag look even emptier. You could easily fit at least 2 more patties in the bag. Or, if you don’t want to add more patties to the bag, you could use a smaller bag! The bag is the same size as all the other products, and honestly I think that’s just a waste of packaging. Either add more product, or make a smaller bag.

I wish they had these, or the maple ones, as actual breakfast sausages (the round kind), that would be even more perfect. Because while these patties are great, if you don’t have English muffins on hand, they look so sad in a regular bread sandwich, or even on a bagel. If they made ‘real’ sausages, then you could have them on the side, instead of turning them into a sandwich, and that would lend itself well to not feeling like you need to make a sandwich for breakfast. And yes, I know you could have these patties on the side, but I feel like they look weird being ‘on the side’ instead of in a sandwich.

If you’ve been looking for something to elevate your breakfast sandwiches, you definitely have to try these. Either the plain or maple ones. They make great breakfast sandwiches, especially with some black salt and nooch on a toasted English muffin. Which is funny, because that’s one of those things I didn’t realize I missed until I had it again, and then I was like, ‘oh, yeah….’

I don’t often eat breakfast type foods, but these are definitely going on my regular shopping list.

Egg Breakfast Wrap

Hey guys!

I was very excited to see that Good Rebel finally had the VeganEgg in stock! I went as soon as I could and bought it. Let me tell you, it is amazing! I had scrambled it plain before this, with just a bit of S&P and it was so good! I highly recommend trying it. Now, granted, I haven’t had ‘real’ eggs in a while, but as soon as you open the package, you definitely smell that distinctive egg smell. And it just gets more intense when you mix it with the water.

Seriously, go try it, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Now, for this recipe, I’ve seen a bunch of breakfast wrap/burrito ads lately, and I’m not sure if it’s due to the warm weather or what, but I decided I might as well try it now that I’ve found an egg substitute I like. (Sorry Tofu Scramble, you just don’t hold up to this glorious creation)

So, I figured, why not? And thus, this little masterpiece was born. It’s quite simple, but who says good food has to be complicated?

AterImber.com The Veg Life - Egg Breakfast Wrap (vegan)

1 VeganEgg

2, 6in. Tortillas

¼ pk Ground Round (I used the Italian Ground Round)

(About) 2Tbsp White Rice

Daiya Mozz Shreds

Spices:

A Pinch of

– S&P

– Garlic Powder

– Onion Powder

Directions:

  1. Make the VeganEgg in a pan, scramble it up. Add the S&P.
  2. Place the VeganEgg off to the side and keep warm.
  3. In the same pan, add the ground round, stirring until cooked. Once almost done cooking, add the rice and mix until rice is hot. You can sprinkle some cheese shreds in now if you’d like.
  4. Once that’s done, remove from heat. Take your tortilla and lay down a sprinkle of cheese shreds first, then add ½ the VeganEgg and half the ground round mixture. Fold in both ends and roll so it’s a burrito. Do the same to the other tortilla.
  5. The a pan, add a splash (1Tbsp) of oil and allow to heat on med-high. Once heated, place one of the wraps seam-side down. Let cook until it turns a nice golden brown and then flip over. Once both sides are golden, remove from pan and do the same to the other wrap.
  6. Place on plate and cut in half (optional) and add a handful of grapes.

Serve immediately and enjoy!

So, what do you guys think? Like it? Hate it? Should be thrown into a pit and never made again? Let me know in the comments!
