Any recommendations for good tasting brands? I'd like to avoid expensive trial and error. Most I have had taste like rubber.

Have you tried Yves Good Dogs? I love them, they appear and feel rubbery at first in your hands, but once they're microwaved in water and you bite into them, they have the texture of real hot dogs. The taste I think is better than hot dogs, too, it's more smokey. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> They're pretty cheap, too, I think the pack of nine that I got was a few dollars at WalMart.<br><br>
Also, Field Roast is hard to find but I've heard those are good too. Take a look at the Field Roast website, everything looks amazing.

I agree with disney.jessica about Yves and Field Roast. Yves are pretty good but Field Roast is the BEST, it can be hard to find but it's so delicious. You could probably do a Google search to see if they sell it in your area.

My only experience is with SmartDogs. They're not bad, good enough that I keep buying them. They grill well.

I like Smart Dogs. If you top them with condiments, they taste like meat ones to me.<br><br>
I love FR, but haven't tried the new Frankfurter yet. The sausages are good on a bun <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

The brand I like it Eating Right. It's a brand only sold in Safeway so I don't know if these are in the US.

i wish those hotdog brands you mentioned are available here in the Philippines. the only healthier hotdog available here is tuna hotdog.

I tried Tofurky Italian sausages and never looked back. I like them a lot better than other veggie hot dogs.

Yves are the best I've had so far. They have the exact texture of a hot dog, but they aren't very juicy, and the flavor is bland to me. I keep searching for Field Roast. I find all of their other stuff, but not the hot dogs yet. I'm guessing they will be more widely available eventually.

I drive 40mins away every time I have a cookout or am going to a cookout.... Just to get some field roast.<br><br>
Ive tried Tofurky Italian and could barely finish them.... But a friend told me its all about their kielbasa, so I been meaning to give that a try.

Has anyone tried the Morningstar Farm Italian Sausage? I got some to try for a cookout that was cancelled, and they're still sitting there because i'm nervous to try them! I've found (with veggie burgers at least, I haven't tried any veggie dogs/sausages yet) that they are much better when you cook them on a charcoal grill.

Veggie hotdogs are similar to regular hotdogs in that they are really only as good as all the **** you pile on top of them, and with enough stuff piled on them it doesn't really matter what brand you have lol. I do use the Tofurkey italian sausages in cooking sometimes though. Sliced thin and cooked until slightly crispy on the outside, they go well in spaghetti.

Well yes, but they do taste good. And with enough garlic, the garlic smell overpowers the ass smell.

My breath smelled like ass for days, after brushing my teeth three times a day, i had a job interview and all I could think about was what those things did to my mouth. For days. With ridiculous amounts of brushing. It taught me a lesson: Never try new foods right before a job interview. Still got the job though.

I found that out about veggie burgers this weekend as well. Went to Red Robin for the first time since I became veggie and substituted the Gardenburger in one of their regular, piled high burgers. There was so much flavor you couldn't tell what kind of burger was in there! I'm quite a minimalist when it comes to hot dogs and sausages though, ketchup and cheese only usually. I do like the occasional chili dog though! :)
