Morningstar Breakfast Patties made with Organic Soy

Okay, wrapping up breakfast month. I really didn't mean to have so many Morningstar products this month - it just worked out that way. But here's one more: Morningstar Breakfast Patties made with Organic Soy.

To be perfectly honest, I don't really get the whole organic thing. I don't know why it's such a big deal. But whatever - not for me to judge. Once again, Morningstar thinks people actually want 2-inch diameter sausage patties. I have never seen an English muffin that small, so these are kind of useless for breakfast sandwiches, and that's a shame.

Let's quickly cover the cooking instructions. On the box, it says to cook these for 8-10 minutes, "turning as needed to promote even browning". On the website, it says they cook for 11-12 minutes, turning as needed, etc. I cooked these for approximately 4 minutes, turning twice, and they were perfect. Lightly browned, crispy, not at all burned or anything stupid like that. Why are the instructions lying to me?

Alright, enough whining, let's get to the tasting. These, well, tasted just like the non-organic-soy version. Very breakfast-sausage-y, a little spicy, but not too spicy. I don't really have much else to say about these - they're good.

The experience:
Texture - crispy and sausage-patty-ish - what more could you ask for?
Flavor - tasted pretty much like I'd expect a breakfast patty to taste - nicely seasoned and a little bit spicy.

Final grade for this attempt: A- (downgraded for being stupidly tiny)


  1. I always see these & am tempted to buy. Thanks for the review! I'm glad to know that they are decent!!

  2. I love real meat, but I love these more than actual sausage paties. They are best when done in a convection toaster oven.
