It is always nice to have something quick and easy on standby for a quick weekend breakfast. I find sausages perfect for this in order to create a sandwich fast. As my partner seems to be quite changeable when sausages are involved, we have tried and tasted many.
Taifun organic Grill Sausage's
The Taifun Organic Grill Sausage’s come in a pack size of four, perfect for two to share . You can fry or grill these sausages but as the Taifun sausages contain very little fat, it is best to brush them with oil before grilling to prevent them drying out. These sausages and rather soft to bite into making them less sausage-like than the others, however for taste and content these are my favourites. Available from Ocado.

Linda McCartney Frozen Sausages
The Linda McCartney Sausages, are frozen so they do not have to be consumed all at once.They are good value for money as there are 6 in a pack for just £1.89. They can be oven cooked, fried, grilled or barbecued. Whilst these sausages are tasty while being eaten it is the fact that my body reminds me that I have eaten them for the rest of the day as they seem to give me heartburn. Available from most supermarkets.
Ingredients:Rehydrated textured wheat protein (63%), vegetable oil, water, pea and wheat protein (4%), flavourings, rusk, stabilizer – hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose.
Cooking Time: 10-18 Minutes Pack Size: 6 Price: £1.89 Mark out of 10: 4
Redwood Lincolnshire Style Sausages
The Redwood Vegideli, Lincolnshire Style Sausages are ready to eat but in my opinion they are nicer heated up. You can do this by shallow frying, grilling or microwaving. I find spraying with a little oil and grilling gives the best results, however, I do not have a microwave so I can not comment on that method. Available from VeggiStuff.
Ingredients:Water, wheat gluten, onion, sunflower oil, wholemeal rusk, soya protein, natural flavouring, salt, unrefined sugar, yeast extract, dried herbs, stabiliser (methyl cellulose), spice extracts, dried garlic, malt extract

Holland and Barrett frozen Sausages.
The Holland and Barett, premium vegetarian sausages are frozen. They can be shallow fried or barbecued, I have only tried frying and they do take a while to heat all the way through.These are perhaps the firmest to bite into of the 5.
