I actually like vegeterian sausages more then the meat ones. Ive tasted Linda Mcartney's they are quite expensive but I thought they were very tasty and had some flavour to it, also they were not firm and rubbery, my family also tasted them and liked them fine.

I tasted the quorn sausages and total opposite, sorry but I thought it was disgusting, rubbery texture, awful smell and taste .

So far I just like one brand and so just bring that one. Does anyone know any good brand of veegetarian sausages taste nice but are SOFT and mushy.?

I don't know the answer to the question, never having tasted veggie sausages, but you can brighten up any sausage by coating it with sticky sauce.

Grill your sausages then mix equal parts tomato ketchup and brown sugar - put sausages in a disch, cover with sauce, oven for about 20 mins to allow sauce to melt and soak in. really delicious!

Linda McCartney are gross IMO.

I've been a non-meat eater for years and I like quorn and most of the ranges that are sold in Holland & Barrett.

They don't really pretend to be meat.

Linda (God bless her vegan soul) seems to have though that bacony, hammy chemical essence makes a good non meaty sausage when really we just want some soya, onions and spice.

LM are not too bad, but thye have to be cooked slowly or else they go hard and inedible. They are not the best tasting though, vegetarian choice from Holland and Barrett are not bad, and they also sell a lincolnshire type sausage in their freezer compartment.

It is a case of trial and error and what is right for you though.

love linda mccartneys, i even make sausage rolls and sausage casserole with hers. quorns you have to fry which is a pain as lindas can be put in the oven and are moist like real sausages whereas quorns are very dry.

I'm not vegetarian but earlier this year I tried Quorn, Linda McCartney and Cauldron. The best ones imho were definitely the Linda McCartney which I found slightly surprising as they're vegan whereas the others aren't (Quorn and Cauldron contain egg).

I'd also recommend the Linda M ones and the quorn red leicester and onion ones.

Also these:

I recently bought some LM vegetarian sausages from Fartfoods

( or was it Farmfoods ) and they were 1 for six.

They were OK but nothing like the taste of real good quality sausages,but OK for a pound.

Yep, Redwoods do amazing sausages. Their hot dogs are awesome and I love the Lancashire sausages. Got some waiting in the fridge right now
