I felt like experimenting a little today. I grabbed up some Gimme Lean Sausage and combined it with some cooked quinoa I had sleeping in my freezer after I forgot to pack it on a camping trip this summer. Poof. Breakfast Sausage Patties – Vegan Style.
Vegan Breakfast Sausage Patties
adapted from Happy Herbivore’s Breakfast Sausage Patties
- 1 C cooked red quinoa
- 1 14-oz tube Gimme Lean Sausage
- 2 T pure maple syrup
- 1/4 tsp liquid smoke
- 1/2 tsp Penzeys Breakfast Sausage Seasoning
- 1/4 cup peeled & shredded Granny Smith Apple
Super simple prep. Combine all ingredients into a bowl, smash around to combine. Use rounded scoop to get similar sized (walnut size) balls, smash into small patties, fry up on a griddle.
I’m storing mine on parchment paper, in layers with half in the freezer in a Ziplock container in layers pre-formed and the other half into the fridge for consumption during the busy weekday.
Mr. Wonderful says, “these taste like breakfast sausage.” Yes, dear…they do.
