Vegan Sausage Patties

Posted on: March 12th, 2011 by missycoppage 6 Comments
I used to really enjoy the Morningstar Sausage Patties in my Vegetarian days, but since they are not Vegan friendly I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I know there are other brands that are Vegan, but I just prefer to make my own.  This list of ingredients looks long, but keep in mind that most of it is spices and you can omit a couple if you do not have them.  The fennel is a must, as is the Cayenne and Black Pepper, but the rest is just the combination I came up with that I enjoy.  So if you try to make these and you don’t have mace spice on hand, don’t panic and don’t go spend $13 on it as it is an expensive spice to purchase to use so little.  These are really easy to make and the frozen leftovers are awesome on those mornings when we are eating and running out for school or work.

To accompany the sausages I also made the delicious  Fat Free Vegan French Toast from

Vegan Sausage Patties

Makes 8-10

Vegan Sausage Patties


½ cup TVP
½ cup Boiling water
¼ cup Whole wheat pastry flour
¼ cup Flax seed, ground
¼ cup Oatmeal, ground
2 Tbsp Nutritional yeast
1 tsp Garlic powder
½ tsp Crushed sage
½ tsp Ground fennel
½ tsp Black pepper
½ tsp Cayenne
¼ tsp Mace
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
¼ cup Water
½ tsp Liquid smoke
3 Tbsp Braggs liquid aminos
¼ tsp Blackstrap molasses
1-2 Tbsp Safflower oil (for frying)


* Stir together TVP and boiling water and set aside to soak for 5 minutes.

*With a mortar and pestle, grind the oatmeal and flax seed.

*In a medium bowl, mix flour, flax, oats, brown sugar, and dry spices.

*Stir in TVP.

* In a measuring cup, measure out water; add liquid smoke directly to the cup and stir, (this way the smoke will be evenly distributed). Stir in Braggs and Molasses.

*Then add wet to dry; mix well. With your hands, form mixture into 2″ balls and flatten slightly into patties.

* Fry in oil in an uncovered frying pan on medium heat, about 2 minutes per side (or until browned).

*Place on a plate covered with a paper towel to cool and absorb extra oil.

* Freeze leftovers (if you have any) and microwave 1-2 minutes to reheat.

    This is just the recipe I have been looking for. In my search I kept finding vegetarian patties and they would just say omit the eggs to make it vegan, but of course that doesn’t make since, because the eggs are there for a reason. I have used flax seed in baking in the past, so I don’t know why I didn’t think of it. I am eager to try this and have pretty much everything including most of the spices on hand. Very excited and thank you for sharing!

      You are welcome. This is by far one of my favorite recipes. They are so delicious and I make them often.

  3. I am soooo trying to get away from processed foods. And we love sausage, but dislike all the additives out there. So this will definitely be on my list of things to try for sure.
