Veggie Breakfast Sausage Recipes

I have had a few store bought veggie breakfast sausages that were fine, but none of them have been particularly special. However, this one restaurant in my area makes amazing veggie breakfast sausage petties. I know it's not vegan (it has cheese) and that's not an issue for me, but other than that I don't know how they're made. Has anyone found any good veggie sausage recipes? It doesn't need to taste like meat obviously, but having a good taste and texture is important.

      1. I'm addicted to the MorningStar veggies sausage links..
        I cook them up with a little drizzle of EVO and sea salt and then make a goat cheese frittata with cherry tomt's halved, green onions..
        I also poached eggs on a hash brown base with the veggie sausage good
        Burritos with scrambled eggs, cheese, green onion, avo, veggie sausages cut up, hot salsa..

        1. Morning Star's original sausage patties are part of my breakfast several times a week. They're so good that I don't feel the need to try to make my own. Not vegan - they include egg whites.

            Most of Morning Star's products are not vegan if that's a concern. I think they use egg whites as binder.

              Yes, that's in the ingredients list. Also wheat gluten, for those who're concerned about that. It's not claimed to be a vegan product. For those who want a low fat alternative to breakfast sausage or just not to eat meat, I recommend it.

          2. If a mix is OK, the Harmony Valley sausage mix is really wonderful and vegan. It's a good basic mix that can be spiced to your liking. I like it and the burger mix so much, I've put them both on auto-buy on Amazon.

            After 15 minutes of rehydrating, it can be used as crumbles or formed into patties or links. I love using them to make a potato and sausage hash and the burger mix works really well on the grill.
