More info: Field Roast
 

I'm a big fan of Field Roast sausages. With most alt-sausages on the market tasting fairly similar, Field Roast's are a true standout.

Do you like spicy food? If not, Mexican Chipotle sausages aren't for you. They pack quite a zing. I like spicy food, but one of my pet peeves - especially with veg*n products - is companies trying to mask the blandness of their foods with spices (see: Boca Chili). Field Roast does an admirable job balancing the flavor and the spiciness.

The texture of Field Roast sausages is also pretty unique. I know people who are turned off by it, claiming that the sausages are too "rubbery," but I find it to be a plus.

My only dislike of Field Roasts's alt-sausages is that they come individually wrapped in plastic casings that you have to cut off. It's not a huge deal, but the Mexican Chipotle links come infused with a red sauce that, if you're not careful while trying to extract the sausage, can stain clothing. So be careful.

The Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Sausages are definitely worth the trek to Whole Foods for me. (Whole Foods is the only place I've ever seen Field Roast.) So if you're looking for a change of pace from the boring, run-of-the-mill alt-sausages out there, give these a try.

I love, love the apple sage sausage. I haven't tried the chipotle ones yet. I was pretty disappointed by the Italian style sausages.

Sometimes Whole Foods has Field Roast Coconut Crusted cutlets in the deli section with the prepared foods. They are so good. For some reason they don't sell the cutlets to consumers just to delis and such.

Best things ever!!! Amazing for quesadillas, or just to spice up some chopped up veggies!

I like the apple sage sausages, but the Celebration Roast is our favorite. Good on sandwiches or served with veggies. They freeze well.
