    A prime marketing opportunity missed. They should serve it up with some lentil fritters and a glass of celery juice, and call it the Piers Morgan Happy Meal.

    That looks nice. Can I see a pic of what you actually receive from the petrol station, particularly after eight hours sitting in the warm tray with the jambons and spicy wedges?

    I live with a vegetarian. I’ve Never eaten anything that she brings home that “tastes surprisingly meaty”. It’s all tasteless Fisher Price makey up meat.

      has she ever brought home those beet & bean burgers by the Irish crowd? They’re savage, and I’m not usually a man for the old plants and all

        And that’s from a man who eats his steak bleu.

    Sausage = meat product. Find your own terminology. Thanks. This is the same for Burger by the way, it is only to be used for meat products.

      Found one:
      sausage
      /ˈsɒsɪdʒ/
      noun
      1. an item of food in the form of a cylindrical length of minced pork or other meat encased in a skin, typically sold raw to be grilled or fried before eating.

      Oh…. :)

        Indeed. I wasn’t joking, some are making moves to have those names excluded from vegan / vegetarian products as those terms are reserved for the meat industry. Lets see how many they sell then…

          Ah give over, this doesn’t affect you at all. Regular sausage rolls continue to be available in large quantities.

    First? Dont think so. Carrots Tail in Rathmines has’em, and they’re bleeding delish.

  6. Janet, I ate my avatar

    I think it’d the wrong tack trying to market this stuff as meaty, I just think grim
    and I love lentils etc
    just call it a tasty roll

    “what has become known as ‘meatless Monday,’ ”

    When did Meatless Monday become a thing? And is it only the last Monday of April? That would not be so bad, I guess…

    vegan sausage roll…oh wouldya just (rhymes with key) off

    good sausage rolls are an art in themselves to make

    sorry but there’s a limit, that’s pure gobpoopery

      Don’t knock it til you tried it eh? There all over the place now. Even subway do a very tasty vegan option

    This all started with Greggs vegan roll in the UK. They ran it as a trail and it was such a success, even they were surprised. There is a big demand for plant based foods now and I personally think it is going to keep growing.

    I doubt if the average normal sausage roll has anything more than 20% meat in it anyways and without being heavily processed, even that is the bits nobody would normally eat. If a plant based product comes in at half the price and most of the taste then it will sell. The market will decide.

    For anyone interested- meat eaters I mean, try the Beyond Meat burgers, €7 for two which is expensive but no more so than a burger made out of a half decent cut of beef. Oh and if you are allergic to Penicillin then stay the hell away from Quorn.
