Adventures in Tofurky...


I generally don't venture this far into the processed food world. However, my stepmom was kind enough to pick these up for me, so I decided to give them a shot.

Tofurky makes some good stuff, but I wouldn't really recommend the sun-dried tomato sausages unless you're in a pinch with few other options. . They honestly kind of tasted like dog food to me, but topping it with the veggies makes them taste a lot better.  I like the regular veggie sausages better.

Anyways, here's a recipe to pair with vegan sausages (or veggie dogs). I've taken a liking to veggie dogs, they taste exactly like hot dogs. The only problem is that you have to make sure not to overcook them. They shrivel up very quickly.

Serve these with grilled veggies, beans, or salad.


4 Tofurky Italian Sausages (or other brand/flavor/ veggie dogs)
4 bakery fresh buns
1½ cups portabella mushrooms, sliced or diced
1 medium red pepper, diced
1 medium sweet onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped (or sub garlic salt)
Ketchup, mustard, etc.

Serves 4.
Total Cook Time: 15 to 20 minutes.


1. Grill sausages according to package directions, adding salt and pepper as needed. Make sure not to dry them out. (Their texture can be kind of weird).

2. Sauté mushrooms, pepper, onions, and garlic on medium heat until onions are caramelized  and mushrooms are tender; 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Once everything is done, place sausages and veggies on the buns along with whatever other condiments you may want.
