Has anyone tried the Celebration Roast by Field Roast? I am IN. LOVE. with Field Roast. If it didn't have so much salt, I'd eat it everyday! Anyways, with that said, had anyone tried the Celebration Roast? Is it similar to the Field Roast texture/flavor? FYI, I don't like Tofurkey!

Field Roast is the most delicious tasting thing ever The Celebration roast is my favorite thing they offer. I also love the Apple Sage Sausage (I've tried the Chipotle one, not the other loaves). I'm also not a fan of Tofurky, yuck. Try it, I think you'll love it.

Is this something that is pre-made?

I've actually never had tofurkey. Bad vegan!

Field roast is wonderful. Even if I were omni, I would definitely prefer the taste over turkey. And yes, the apple sage sausage is heavenly!

I so very much want to try Field Roast products but the only retailers listed in New Mexico are in the ABQ/Santa Fe area . That pic Dana posted has me hungry right now. Also the sausage would make my life complete. Think I'll ask @ the co-op if there is any way they could try offering it....

Not all of the locations are on their site list, have you checked your local HFS? You can probably request it too, they may carry it for the holidays. The place I got it last year (first time I tried it) didn't have the location listed on their site, probably because they only carried it in November, December, and I believe around Easter.

Good to know. I will indeed do some calling since I'm not a regular patron of the local health food store as the prices are out of this world. We have a great co-op locally but I have wanted to try the Field Roast products for some time.

I finally found the Celebration Roast at a local store yesterday but didn't get it. HOLY CRAP that thing is tiny and expensive. Is it really worth it for the price?

$9. I just read the Sunday ad for another grocery store and they are starting to sell Tofurky products now so I'll probably go there and see if they carry the Field Roast products as well and check out the prices.

Between 7-9 is normal, it's worth it though. I buy them when they're on sale for $6 or $7 when I see them. It is small, but it does serve 4. It's very filling, sometimes I can't even finish a serving.

I'm getting the sage and apple! Is that what's like sausage? I've been craving those flavors! I also want the texture of the crumbled, somewhat greasy texture. Wow, I'm grossing myself out here, but yeah, I would like that. Esp. in stuffing balls.
I have learned that sometimes buying more expensive foods to satisfy a craving can really help me stay on track, otherwise I'm likely to just eat junk food.

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

The FR Apple Sage isn't greasy, but the flavor and texture are really good. I like it sliced up in casseroles The closest to greasy sausage I've found is the Gimme Lean by Lightlife.

I picked some up at WFM, can't wait to try it! I might do a 'trial run' this week.

There's so much love for the Celebration Roast, I decided to give it another chance. I picked one up when I stopped at Whole Foods on my way home this evening. $5.99 here.

LOL! I think that is the regular price here, I didn't see any sale signs on it.

(I was also annoyed that Tofurky isn't on sale yet, it's usually on sale the whole month of November, but still full-priced today. Buying the Celebration Roast was a quiet protest against full-priced-Tofurky, $12.99)

The celebration roast gets 4 servings while the Tofurky gets 6, but you're still paying about double. I hate Tofurky, so it works out in my favor

I'm going to check around, see if I can find Field Roast on sale. Now is a great time to stock up if I can find it for cheap

Anyone have any cooking tips, or are the directions on it good enough? I bought one for the heck of it and I remember, when I tried Tofurky for my first vegan Thanksgiving last year, there were multiple threads about keeping the sucker moist because it had a tendency to dry out. The Tofurky was meh. I barely ate any of it, but I DID spend a long-ass time tearing the "meat" part of it apart with my fingers and making a "Thanksgiving Tofurky salad" with Vegenaise, seasoning, dried cranberries, onions, apples, and celery. Certain homemade chicken salads are something I missed, and it worked okay for that....

But, man, I LOVE Field Roast sausages. I have heart palpitations if I don't have both the Italian and Apple Sage ones on hand in the freezer at all times... So I figured I'd go for the Celebration Roast this year.

In short: COOKING TIPS PLEASE!

I've cooked it 2 ways (After it was thawed, sliced it, then..) 1) Heated it through in a pan on the stove and 2) I've placed slices on top of stuffing and put it in the oven for 10 minutes or so. They do dry up a bit in the oven, but just keep an eye out not to over cook them. Honestly, it's good cold too (and I'm picky about food temps). Good for taking bites from the fridge It's precooked, so it's not bad to eat "raw."

Can you not cook the whole thing at once? Do you hafta slice it beforehand or are you just doing that because it's funnererer?

I've never baked the thing whole, it just seems like it would take longer and risk drying the roast out.
