Today I do the impossible! I show you how to make Healthy Sausage! Now by healthy sausage, I mean it tastes like sausage and it has the same texture as sausage. It is however made from Textured Vegetable Protein instead of pork and the other random things you find in unhealthy sausage.
My healthy sausage patties are 158 calories each. They have 9 Grams of Fiber (50% requirements), 14 Grams of Protein (30% requirements) and only 3 Grams of Fat (.05% requirements). Your average unhealthy sausage patty is 230 Calories with 198 of those Calories coming from Fat! My sausages are even healthier than normal veggie patties!!!
