I don’t like them. I tired the beyond burger at a restaurant last year. It had an odd taste; even my dog disliked it. We both had the same after affects... they are incredibly high in fat.

I'm a meat and potato guy....absolutely love my barbecue! BUT....my wife refuses to eat meat with the exception of salmon from time to time. Because of her I've eaten both beyond and impossible products and actually like the texture and flavor when cooked on the grill. I've found I sometimes crave them over red meat. This is not just a fad...it's here to stay. It's also nice to be able to go to a restaurant where there is more of an option for both of us to have a selection. Just my personal opinion.....

I tried Beyond sausages the other day, the "Brat" types. I was not impressed. It was OK, but not much flavor.

I cooked the sausage with sauerkraut, but I would like to find a nice flavorful one to have for a veg "bangers and mash". The traditional pork bangers are so fatty and greasy and lord only knows what is in them.

Since Impossible patties can now be found in many grocery stores, I've stocked up on them. I like to switch around with Beyond meat.

I cook them in the air fryer so a lot of the grease just drips to the bottom and get rid of a lot of the fat and I don't need much.

I don't think I can ever go back to straight bean burgers unless that's the only thing being sold at a restaurant. The texture and taste of Impossible/Beyond beats previous meat substitutes. And the thing is, I like the taste of meat substitutes, and not real meat. There's none of that beefy blood aftertaste and smell that's now a turn off.

And as much meat substitutes that I've been eating, I recently had my annual physical and I had the healthiest blood lipid profile in several years with lowered total cholesterol, LDL, and triglyceride levels. This even when I haven't been exercising that much the past few months.

Intermittent fasting might have helped as well.

MQ I know that you are not a fan of Faux Meats - and that you are no longer a vegetarian or vegan.

Then years ago, the options were not good. Twenty years ago they were even worse.

I am going to bet that there ARE some meat analogs that you have not yet tried, that you would enjoy.

Honestly, I wish I could cook you dinner.

What brand were these sausages? No. They are not "traditional" bangers and they are nowhere near as fatty and greasy. I agree, who knows what is in them?

Sausage can be delicious. So can hot dogs. I feel so much more comfortable eating the plant-based variety. I am not a fan of fat or grease either.

I'd like to give you some suggestions about the best meat analogs. And recipes if you would like.

Some are "meh" and others are really wonderful.

Plant based meals are not all you think they are. Chemicals are used to extract what's needed from the plant to make the product.

Chemicals are also used in the production of meat and dairy -- in the form of antibiotics.

They just opened up a vegan butcher shop in London. This is awesome!

These alien / synthesized lab creations confuse the body. And if the stuff can't be digested, will likely leave remnants / residues in the body.

Pizza Hut now offers Beyond Meat. No vegan cheese though.
