You may or may not have heard that the UK’s favourite bakery chain Greggs just launched its first vegan sausage roll.
Besides a few critics (we’re looking at you Piers Morgan), the snack – which features Quorn meat filling, 96 layers of animal-free puff pastry, and maximum taste – won the public over, selling out in several locations, and prompting Greggs to expand the vegan option to all of its 1800 stores.
It’s official; vegan sausage rolls are so in right now. But if you don’t know what Greggs is or how to get your hands on the plant-based dish, here are seven other ways you can enjoy a vegan sausage roll.

6. Wicked Kitchen
If you’re based in the UK but not a fan of Greggs, Tesco may be your best bet. The leading supermarket chain stocks an impressive array of products from its vegan Wicked Kitchen range, including lasagne, spaghetti bolognese, vegan meat sandwiches, and, you guessed it, sausage rolls. Plus, per gram, these bad boys contain more protein than Greggs’ vegan and meat sausage rolls.
You can purchase Wicked Kitchen products at Tesco. Or, if you’re a fan of Wicked Kitchen’s food but prefer to make your own, you can buy its cookbook right here.
7. Linda McCartney
Vegan and vegetarian food brand Linda McCartney has been pioneering the meat-free movement for years. The company’s vegan sausage roll includes a Vegetarian Cumberland Sausage-Style filling with soya protein, wrapped in a flaky puff pastry. It contains a heap of protein and fiber but no cholesterol, making it the comfort food of dreams.
