As a new vegan, 15 years ago, there were a few products in the store that were my absolute life-savers. 

Veggie burgers
Veggie lunchmeat
Veggie pepperoni
Veggie meat crumbles
Vegan breakfast sausage

Those grab-and-go convenience foods really got me through those first few years until I started asking myself…

What is Veggie Breakfast Sausage made of?

I really started getting serious about what I was putting in my body. It didn’t make sense that I was saying no to meat products but was just picking up these random products up off the shelves without really being educated on them. People would ask me exactly what was in a veggie pepperoni or veggie lunchmeat and I wouldn’t know how to answer them.

So I starting doing a little research. For example, this is what the ingredients of store bought veggie sausage patties look like:

Water, Wheat Gluten, Soy Protein Concentrate, Corn Oil, Soy Flour, Egg Whites, Sodium Caseinate, Modified Tapioca Starch, Contains Two Percent Or Less Of Soy Protein Isolate, Lactose, Soybean Oil, Methylcellulose, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Spices, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Sodium Tripolyphosphate, Salt, Modified Corn Starch, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten, Disodium Inosinate, Caramel Color, Whey, Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Potassium Chloride, Dextrose, Onion Powder, Disodium Guanylate, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Sodium Hexametaphosphate, Succinic Acid, Niacinamide, Monosodium Phosphate, Lactic Acid, Brewer’s Yeast, Torula Yeast, Calcium Phosphate, Soy Lecithin, Iron (Ferrous Sulfate), Magnesium Carbonate, Vitamin B1 (Thiamin Mononitrate), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride), Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin), Vitamin B12.

Yikes!

I knew it was time to start making my own Homemade Veggie Sausage Patties, and that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do today. Because check this out in comparison…

Speaking of freezing… let’s talk about how to store these:

How to store your Vegan Breakfast Sausage

If you’re not planning on serving all the sausage right away, you have a couple options.

The vegan sausage patties will keep in the fridge for up to a week. Just keep the patties in an air-tight container and use within the week and you’ll be good to go.

Store in the freezer for up to 6 months. The best way to do this is to wait for the patties to completely cool to room temperature. Then you’ll want to place the patties in a freezer-safe ziploc bag separated by pieces of parchment paper so they don’t stick together in the freezer. To reheat from frozen, heat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds on each side until warmed through.

So, you know how to store them, but now I want to show you…

Just how easy it is to make Vegan Breakfast Sausage

  1. Combine ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5-10 minutes to thicken up.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, add the bell pepper, white onion, garlic, and black beans. Pulse until peppers and onions are chopped very small and beans are mashed but still a bit chunky with a few whole beans still intact.
  3. Add bean mixture to a large bowl. To it, add the thickened flax mixture, bread crumbs, and seasonings. Stir to combine all ingredients.
  4. Using a 1/2 cup, form the mixture into 8 patties.
  5. Heat a large non-stick skillet to medium heat. Drizzle olive oil in pan. Brown patties in skillet for 5-7 minutes on each side until browned.

Seriously, you’ll end up with the best vegan breakfast sausage ever! Your vegan breakfast will feel 100% complete!

What goes with Vegan Breakfast Sausage?

Gah, vegan breakfast is my jam!

I’d definitely serve it alongside my vegan french toastvegan breakfast casserole, or vegan eggs omelette.

Or just plated with a classic vegan tofu scramble would be a perfect way to serve it up.
