Rhett & Link Rank Their Favorite Vegan Sausages

Whether you’re a strict vegan or you’re just somebody who wants to consume fewer animal products, meatless meat has become a tasty option to add to your shopping cart. It’s easy to cook, and it’s becoming more readily available and affordable in grocery stores around the country. All fake meats, however, are not created equal.

On March 20, 2019, Rhett & Link tasted some of the most popular plant-based sausages at the grocery store. Vegetarian actor and writer Thomas Lennon (Reno 911, Bob’s Burgers) joined them for a segment called “Fake Meat of Mine; Vegan Sausage: Is It Good?” Below are the top three favorite meatless sausages they tried. (For even more vegan sausages, check out the Sporked ranking too.)

Amy’s Kitchen Veggie Sausage

These Amy’s veggie sausage links were some of the smallest, most vegetable-based they tried. Thomas thought they were exactly “the right size.” He also loved the texture and flavor. Rhett & Link, on the other hand, liked these, but didn’t think they were good enough to make it to the top of the list. Unfortunately, Amy’s no longer sells their veggie breakfast sausages.

Beyond Meat Plant-Based Original Brat Dinner Sausage Links

Beyond Meat makes one heck of a vegan sausage. The original Brat flavor is juicy and savory, just like the real deal. Thomas liked that it actually “[smelled] like a brat.” Rhett enjoyed its “bounciness” and announced that he “[wanted] to keep eating it.” Link also gave it top marks on the scoreboard. Overall, this was the most agreed-upon by all these tasters.

Morningstar Farms Meatless Breakfast Sausage Patties

After thoroughly examining and tasting (and smelling) the Morningstar Farms sausage, Rhett busted out the “L” word. He “loved” this plant-based sausage. In fact, he loved it so much that he gave it a perfect 10. Link and Thomas both enjoyed that it wasn’t too spongy and thought it had a good flavor, but didn’t think it compared to Beyond’s version of the breakfast meat.
