On a pure taste test - Goodlife's Glamorgan Leek and Cheese Sausages came out top. Although nothing like a traditional sausage, they had lots of cheesy onion flavour and a great texture (crispy on the outside, soft in the middle) - and would make a great alternative for veggies and meat eaters alike.
On a calorie and fat test - Grassington Food Co. Double Cheese and Red Onion sausages come in at only 68 kcal and an amazing 1.7g fat each! They also boast a great mix of flavours and chunky texture, making them an equally great alternative!
Linda McCartney's tasted the most like traditional sausages and looked good too. We grilled all of our veggie sausages but we have it on good authority that Linda's are great for cooking in casseroles, pies and more.
Quorn's were a bit chewy and bland, and Tesco's Spinach and Ricotta sausages were far from appealing.
