We bought a package of Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties to try. Here's what we thought of Beyond's vegan breakfast sausage.
Let's dive into that review of the Beyond Breakfast Sausage, then talk about what's cooking, y'all!
Beyond Breakfast Sausage review
Beyond Meat recently released two varieties of breakfast sausage. These are different from the Beyond Breakfast Links. These are patties, like you'd find in a breakfast sandwich.
We've only been able to find the Classic variety of Beyond Breakfast Sausage so far, so if we track down the Spicy, we'll have to do a follow-up.
UPDATE: We've since found the spicy patties, and they are great! They have a little kick but aren't overly spicy. Perfect if you like a little heat in your breakfast sausage game.
Breakfast sausage patties in general are a fave around here. Beyond's version is a bit smaller than some of the others we've tried, but they make up for that size with big flavor.
We made ours in the air fryer, and I recommend spritzing them with a bit of oil to keep them from drying out in the fryer. If you want to air fry these, eight to 11 minutes at 400° F should do the trick.
Dave made these with tater tots in the basket, too, and 11 minutes still did the trick.
Y'all, Dave and I loved these sausages, both the regular and the spicy. We feel like they have the perfect balance of spice and texture. Beyond has really figured out the texture in a way no other vegan meat we've tried has done.
We love them on grit bowls and on bagel sandwiches! Maybe with a Just Egg patty, which we reviewed last week, why not?
How we ate them
We've been making grit bowls around here for years, but Dave's grit bowl game really reached its peak on Mother's Day. That morning, he made us grits and topped them with:
- Beyond Breakfast Sausage patties
- pickled jalapenos
- tater tots
- Daiya pepperjack
It was epic! There are tons of ways to make grit bowls, but if you want to try the one that kicked off grit bowl fever in our house, you've got to make my Grit Bowl with Avocado and Baked Tofu.
Beyond Breakfast Sausage has been a great addition to our grit bowl game!
