Firstly, I’ve been looking for months for this product. I’ve been to the major supermarkets, some of the local natural food stores but ventured a bit farther than normal to one about 30 minutes away. I found the Field Roast Apple Sage Sausage at Cape Cod Natural Foods… found a whole bunch of other stuff as well, I’ll be making the trip back most definitely.
Onto the sausages…
Wow! These have to be the tastiest faux sausages I have eaten to date, hands down. Other companies have tried to match the flavor and consistency of sausage, and though a few have been close, nothing compares to these. It has to be in the ingredients, which are filtered water, wheat protein (vital gluten flour), expeller pressed, high oleic safflower oil, Yukon gold potatoes, non-sulfured Washington state dried apples, yeast extract, onion powder, barley malt extract, fresh garlic, torula yeast, natural liquid smoke flavor, black pepper, spices, rubbed sage. Don’t forget the fact each link has 26g of protein, that’s huge!
I recently reviewed the cheeseburger by Quorn, but also wanted to review just the plain old Quorn Classic Burger (like the last post, this link brings you only to the Quorn US site, the product is not up on the US or UK site).
There was not a huge difference taste wise between the cheeseburger and this classic burger, the coloring was a little more natural looking (the cheeseburger had an orange hue to it). The cheeseburger did have a slight “cheesy” flavor to them, but if you were blindfolded and had one of each you might not know the difference.
Either way, they are both great products. Maybe the biggest difference between the two is the classic burger does have a bit more of that smoky flavor. Whether you cook it in a pan, heat it in the oven or grill it, it still tastes like it was solely cooked on the grill.
Texture is very “meaty” so if you’re a new convert, or have been a vegetarian for a while, you will think this is the real deal. Knowing it is not, will make you feel a lot better knowing where it all came from.
Like I said in the last review again, the Quorn brand of burger has far exceeded in taste and flavor to my old favorite veggie burger. I’ve tried many other brands veggie burgers, by far Quorn is my favorite.
