Ever wondered how to make a vegan sausage sandwich? In the true spirit of Veganuary (something I challenged myself to earlier this year), I often found myself indulging on milky brews and sausage sandwiches. But how? I hear you ask. How do you make a vegan sausage sandwich? Two words, really: Linda McCartney.
Who doesn’t love a humble sausage butty and a cup of tea? Well, it’s something everyone should be able to enjoy, so here’s a quick post on how…
I’ve always been a sausage fan. One of my go-to recipes used to be my sausage shakshuka or my warm fusilli pasta salad with pork and herb chipolatas. But in my quest to lead a healthier lifestyle (which is going well, by the way), they had totally dropped off my radar.
Until about two years ago when I discovered Linda McCartney sausages (I can’t believe I’ve not blogged about them sooner) and things changed.
I now eat ‘sausages’ about once a week again. But instead of eating juicy, fatty pork; they’re all protein and hardly any fat. Yet still succulent as hell. How do they do it?
I know all the die hard sausage eaters out there will hate this post. But I have grown to love the vegan-friendly sausage. And I think it’s great that vegans can still enjoy a pretty sensational sausage sarnie too!
So, here’s how to make the perfect plant-based sausage butty and a brew.
What you need
My picks for the best ingredients, having tried a few out during Veganuary are:
- This whole wheat bread by LivLife
- This avocado oil spread by Waitrose
- And these vegan-friendly sausages by Linda McCartney
- Ketchup (got to be Heinz. I do prefer Stokes chipotle ketchup, but it contains honey, so not this time!)
- It has to be Alpro long-life oat milk for brews, it’s creamy and so good!
- Tea of your choice (I use Yorkshire tea, always)
How to make a vegan sausage sandwich
Heat the oven to 180°C fan. Once at temperature, take two vegan-friendly sausages and place them on a baking tray near the top shelf of the oven. Set the timer for 8.5 minutes.
Once the timer is up, turn the sausages over, and continue to cook for another 8 minutes.
Get two slices of vegan-friendly wholewheat bread, and spread with a layer of avocado oil spread. Add a squirt of Heinz ketchup to each slice, to taste.
Pop the kettle on. Get a brew ready with Yorkshire tea. Brew for 3 mins then remove the teabag and top with oat milk for a strong, creamy brew.
When the sausages are done, remove from the oven and slice in half lengthways. Pop the sliced sausages on one piece of the bread and top with the other, pushing down slightly so a little bit of ketchup oozes out of the sides.
Dig in and enjoy ❤
