How To Cook Beyond Sausage?

Beyond Breakfast Sausage is an excellent addition to the freezer of any plant-based foodie. The new vegan “sausage” is now available at major supermarkets like ACME, Vons, and Whole Foods.

Beyond Meat’s breakfast sausage continues this year’s trend of vegan “meat” products, as the vegan industry keeps expanding and experimenting with new meat substitutes.

Like the Beyond Burger reimagined the veggie burger, the Beyond Breakfast Sausage does the same for breakfast sausage. I made some of these patties to see how they turned out, and they’re a simple, tasty addition to any breakfast.

This post will walk you through how to cook Beyond sausage, and offer some tips you could leverage, so read on to learn more.

How To Cook Beyond Sausage

The patty form of Beyond Breakfast Sausage makes preparation almost too simple: Just throw the refrigerated methylcellulose sausages in a hot pan directly from the freezer and cook for two to three minutes per side. The duration depends on how crisp you like the outside.

You can also cook the vegan sausage patties from frozen in a convection oven by placing them on a baking sheet and cooking them at 350 F for eight minutes. However you choose to prepare it, Beyond Meat suggests reaching a 165 degrees Fahrenheit internal temperature.

The Beyond Breakfast Sausage can be cooked as directed and then crumbled into small pieces for omelets and breakfast casseroles. You can also cook in an air fryer.

If you’re a regular meat eater, you can tell immediately that this isn’t real meat. It appears to be a beef or pork sausage, but the texture and taste are off.

To be clear, I am not saying that these plant-based meat sausages are bad; rather, I am saying that they are not meat.

Anyone who consumes sausage regularly may find the natural flavor and consistency off-putting. It doesn’t have the juicy texture of real sausage, which comes from little bits of fat throughout the alginate meat.

But those who choose not to consume animal products will likely find this item a great addition to their vegan or vegetarian diet.

If I skipped eating meat for a year or more, I’m guessing this meatless breakfast sausage would taste like heaven after eating so much pea protein, potato starch, rice protein, and dry black bean & lentil burgers.
