One of the hardest parts about being a vegetarian is giving up delicious breakfast foods, like sausage patties. Luckily, you can simulate just about any meat with textured vegetable protein (TVP). Textured vegetable protein is a soy product made from soy-flour. It is highly malleable and easily reconstituted to look and feel like beef, chicken or pork. With the right blend of seasonings, it's perfect for making vegetarian sausage.

Step 1

Mix together the vegetable protein and spices in a large bowl until they are evenly mixed.

Step 2

Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the mixture and let the mixture stand for five minutes, or until all the water absorbs into the mixture.

Step 3

Add the eggs and the flour to the mixture and stir with a wooden spoon.

Step 4

Roll and press the mixture into patties with your hands, similar to how you would make cookies. The mixture should yield approximately 12 patties.

Step 5

Pour 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil into a frying pan set on medium heat.

Step 6

Place the patties into the frying pan. Brown the patties on each side, turning them over with a spatula, then serve.
