Review: Field Roast Grain Sausage + Recipe

Field Roast Grain Meat Co - Smoked Apple Sage Vegetarian Sausage


Have you tried these sausages?  I will go out on a limb and say they are the best tasting sausages I have ever had.  Notice that I didn't say "best tasting vegetarian sausages" - nope, best sausages ever!

I'm also a big fan of the Field Roast Celebration roast, which has become our new tradition for Christmas dinner.  And here is a quick tip - cook a variety of veggies in your crock pot and add the celebration roast for the last 30 - 45 minutes to heat.  It will be much juicier than the suggested cooking method on the package.  I'll try to remember to post my recipe in the fall.

The only wish I have is for the company to reduce the amount of salt they use in their retail products.  I'm sure they would taste just as awesome with half the salt, and then I would feel comfortable eating them more often than just as an occasional treat.


So here is a quick recipe with the apple sage sausages.  It's reminiscent of the eastern European dishes I grew up eating.

Sausage, Potatoes, and Cabbage Fry Up

For 2 servings:

2 Field Roast Apple Sage Sausages (don't forget to remove casing), sliced
2 medium potatoes (or equivalent of smaller potatoes), cubed or sliced and boiled until tender
1 very small head cabbage, sliced (or about 1/2 - 2/3 of a bag of coleslaw mix)
1/2 med onion sliced (I like using a sweet onion, but that is optional)
2 Tbsp canola oil, divided
Freshly ground pepper

Heat 1 Tbsp oil in wok or non-stick skillet on med high.  Cook onion, add cabbage and some pepper to taste (I like lots), and cook until both are ready to eat and hopefully, a bit browned.  Remove to serving bowl.

Heat other Tbsp of oil and add sliced sausage and potatoes.  Cook until heated and browned a bit.  You can also add pepper for these.

Stir together in serving bowl.  Salt if desired.

Traditionally this type of recipe would use butter rather than canola oil.  Some of my family will make similar dishes using half oil and half butter to get the flavor and browning of butter but still keep it a bit healthier.

I'm Italian and from New Jersey and boy oh boy do we have amazing sausage here! I have to agree that the Field Roast brand is the most comparable to sausage I've been able to find. I've made amazing broccoli rabe with "sausage" as both a pasta and a stromboli w/ fresh mozz. and could not be happier with the result. It was a pleasure to read that someone else feels so strongly about the Field Roast brand and I will have to check out their Celebration Roast! Thanks so much for posting! :)

I used your idea for the this fry-up, but made it with mashed potatoes instead and it was *freaking* awesome. Thank you for the inspiration!

Great recipes. I have the hardest time thinking up new things to eat. I get in a rut and eat the same old things every day. Thank you for some new ideas.

Those sausages are AMAZING they are expensive where I live but they are soooo good I have to treat myself to a package every now and then.

Coming from a former big time meat eating foodie...these hit the spot every time!
My husband has requested more and I will gladly oblige.
Bless you for omitting soy too!
