It has been my mission for a long time to learn how to make my own vegetarian Sausage. For years I’ve purchased the Morning Star Farms Brad from the store. I really like the Maple Flavor in particular. However, the price has shot yo over time and a sister can’t go broke over a veggie sausage! They reduced the amount/size they give you in each box, but go up on price.
When that happened, I searched and searched around for a brand that is comparable, but ALL OF THE VEGGIE MEATS HAVE LOST THEIR MINDS! 5 bucks or more for a box, and it doesn’t even taste good!
The last straw was when I read an article about some of the ingredients found in them that basically “Kill you”. I do love a good sausage for breakfast with my pancakes and such😉.
So, the journey to find an alternative was started and I hunted and hunted for one on line, on YouTube and beyond. I saw some that seemed pretty good, but always seemed to be more gluten, then other ingredients, and expensive to create. Plus, I wanted a fairly simple process. I figured I would have to work it out on my own.
Yesterday, I decided to just try and tackle it and wouldn’t you know it, on my first try….it all came together! Literally, it all came together in a mixing bowl and the “Midnight Star Sausage” was born!
Take a look at two different methods I used.
The first is the Pressure cook method:
Then the Oven baked method:
This method required baking in the oven for a little while and then allowing to cool. After cooling for about a day, I sliced and placed in freezer for when I need them. This makes a nice amount for multiple meals, and you can freeze them which helps the texture to firm up a bit. You can heat them up also in the oven, toaster oven, or light brown in a non-stick skillet.
I was VERY PLEASED with the outcome! The recipe will be posted soon. Don’t forget to join my blog so you can receive the upcoming recipes and other items I will be sharing.
