<p>Hi! <span><img alt="smiley.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_1_1339063238271_741" src="http://files.veggieboards.com/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm new to these forums and this is my first post! <img alt="smiley.gif" src="http://files.veggieboards.com/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="width:15px;height:15px;"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have been a vegetarian for a few years now after going to uni and deciding not to eat meat. In this time I have tried many different vegetarian sausages and just wanted your opinion on them.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>There seems to be a couple of types, sort of dry and herby and then "meat" like at the two extremes.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Being a meat eater previously, i prefer the latter texture, I was just curious if everyone was the same!?</p>
<p> </p>

<p>I have an addiction to the Italian ones from tofurky. They are amazing with spices and sun-dried tomato bits.</p>

<p>I definitely like herby flavours in sausagy things. That's often the key thing in any sub for me. It's all about the mint in the not-lamb, sage and onion in the not-turkey and peppercorns in the not-steak. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for sausages I like a firmish but moist texture. Will get frozen veggie bangers sometimes, but I tend to use these now instead:</p>

<p>The best one's I have treid are in the Aunt Bessies Veggetarian Toad in the Hole. This was what lead to my question really, as they seem quite dry compared to others I have tried? <span><img alt="huh.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_1_1339162597483_787" src="http://files.veggieboards.com/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="width:15px;height:22px;"></span></p>

<p>I had only had fake sausages once. Can't remember the brain, but it tasted a bit too real to me. A bit dry I think, but still very convincing. Too convincing, it creeped me out and I never had another one.</p>

<p>I've tried a few different kinds and found that there is something in the Quorn ones that tastes like soapy rubber, but that Linda McCartney and most supermarket ones are pretty good. I usually eat them in sandwiches and smother them in vegan mayo and ketchup though, so its more about being a filling source of protein than fine flavour!</p>

<p>Linda McCartney sausages are the BEST (well, in my opinion obviously). This massively pleased me when I went veggie, as sausages are my junk food vice, I could eat them for every meal.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think they have a 'meaty' texture, if that's what you're looking for, and you can also get them in a ready made toad in the hole. Her sausage rolls aren't too shabby either.</p>

<p>Hungry now.</p>

<p>I actually am not a fan of sausage myself.</p>
<p>But I've heard good things about the MorningStar sausages.</p>

<p>As mentioned, the itallian sausages from Tofurky are awesome. The mini sausages from Morning Star are good too.</p>

<p>I like the ones from <a href="http://www.redwoodfoods.co.uk/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=11&vmcchk=1&Itemid=1" target="_blank">redwood</a> and <a href="http://www.vegusto.co.uk/shop/4-sausages-schnitzels" target="_blank">vegusto</a>, never tried the tofurky ones nor the field roast.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>They have a few different types, i tend to prefer the strong and spicy ones, whatever the brand.</p>
