Greetings all.



I will be grilling out for the Atlanta Braves home opener on Friday, and have not eaten meat for a few months now. I am looking for a good vegetarian hot dog or sausage to supplant the standard meat grill.



I have tried lots of hot dogs...Smart dogs have been a standby...but I'm looking for something a little better for the first home game of the year. Any suggestions on vegetarian sausages for grilling, or for a more substantial vegetarian hot dog?



Thanks in advance for your replies and suggestions.

The Boca sausages/brats (I think they are brats) are really good. Very convincing texture...I like them enough to eat them with no bun or condiments. They are not vegan, however.

Depending on where you are, the President's choice ones are good. I'd suggest brushing whatever veggie dogs you choose with a bit of oil before you grill them.

Tofurkey sausages come in a variety of flavors (Kielbasa, brats, Italian sausage). They are delicious and firm enough to withstand time on the grill. They are sold in the cooler/deli section of HFS and Wild Oats type shops (not the freezer section). The kielbasa are especially good with chopped raw onion and mustard on a bun.

I'm a big fan of Boca's Italian Sausages. The seasoning they add is very yummy and these are excellent on the grill. Quite "meaty" in texture too.

I'll second the motion for the the Tofurkey sausages. Although you have to be careful to not overcook them because they get dried out really easily.

I cannot speak from experience but my brother loves Boca sasuages and he's a meat-eater.

Just about everything by Tofurkey is good.

Morningstar farms hot dogs are the only veggie dogs I can stand, they taste just like meat hot dogs to me (as best I can remember), but I don't think they're vegan. I get them once in a blue moon to keep the kids from eating regular hot dogs when my husband cooks them, and even they think they're good.

Has anyone ever tired Leenies veg hot dogs? I've seen them in the store, but I don't know if they are any good.

Tofurky sausages. Keilbasa is my current favorite.

Tofurkey sausages are definitely the best. I like the Italian flavor, personally.

Morningstar hot dogs are the greatest, and my favorite by a longshot. If you're used to meat, go for them.

DEFINITELY Boca and Tofurky both.... they grill up great!! The "leanies" are pretty OK texturewise... and don't turn too dry when grilled....

I second that. They rock. I don't know how Boca does it. Grill some onions and peppers with it, put in on a crusty Italian roll

Thanks all...I have some Boca Italian sausages, onion, peppers, rolls and some beer all set to go. I just need the weather to cooperate.



Again...thank you.
