Review & Giveaway : Field Roast Smoked Apple Sage, Italian, Mexican Chipotle Sausages


I recently contacted Seattle based company Field Roast Grain Meat Co. and was super excited when they agreed to sponsor a review and giveaway on my lil' bloggy blog! I'd been hearing about Field Roast 'meats' for ages but had yet to try them. Field Roast generously provided me with coupons so that I could try each of their three sausage flavors: Smoked Apple Sage, Mexican Chipotle and Italian!

Apple Sage Sausage: Although all three varieties were super delicious, this one was my favorite. The apples gave the sausages a wonderful, delicate sweetness that paired nicely with the texture and flavor of the grain meat.

The flavor works so well with many dishes... in fact, I can't really think of any sausage based recipe where this wouldn't be a great fit. Each variety is so flavorful that you need only sparing amounts of sausage when using it as an ingredient. Also keep in mind that there's quite a bit of salt in each link (25% DV sodium per link for this variety) so a little does go a long way! I was able to use just 1/4th of a link (each package of sausages comes with 4 links) for a deeelish. flavor packed hot dog. I also left a lentil soup recipe intentionally more bland than the recipe called for and simply added some sausage crumbles- the resulting flavor was robust and delicious!

Mexican Chipotle: The Mexican Chipotle flavor was so much fun to experiment with! The taste is somewhat reminiscent of chorizo, but with a firm texture. The sausage also has a little more kick than chorizo (but not too much kick) combined with a wonderful chipotle and cumin flavor. The spiciness level and flavor is wonderful for dishes like breakfast burritos, pastas and soups. I sprinkled slices of this sausage over my spaghetti and the flavor really livened up the whole dish.

Italian Sausage: This sausage has a great flavor with a superb aroma. The sausage is flavored with fennel which adds a nice clean, "herby" flavor that isn't too strong (the scent is also amazing). The fennel, in addition to eggplant, garlic and red wine, give the Italian sausage a nice, classic taste. Like the other flavor options, this fares well in many dishes. One of my favorite ways to enjoy this variety is sliced thin in a sandwich filled with veggies... yum!

The texture and flavor of Field Roast sausages is very much like the 'real' thing. It has a nice chew to it, but its not at all tough. It both crumbles and slices nicely which was super impressive. As a grain based meat (not soy based), the aroma is clean with no unpleasant aftertaste. Definitely one of my new favorite meat analogues!

I'm totally hooked on Field Roast now. The flavor is wonderful and it's so versatile. I feel like I've barely scratched the surface of this product's potential!
