Birds Eye has added new meat-free sausage rolls to its Green Cuisine range. The company has launched its first entirely vegan sausage rolls to mark National Sausage Roll Day this Friday, June 5.
The vegan sausage rolls are made with a seasoned pea protein filling and they can be cooked in the oven in just 15-20 minutes.
Birds Eye has developed a unique recipe to replicate the taste and texture of its traditional Homebake frozen sausage rolls. A four-pack of Birds Eye's Meat Free Sausage Rolls is priced at £1.50, and it's available now in the frozen aisle of supermarkets across the UK.
Senior Brand Manager at Birds Eye, Anne-Marie Gayer, said: "We know that sausage rolls are one of the nation's favourites snacks, so we wanted to create a meat-free version that perfectly replicates the taste and texture of high-street outlets, but with the convenience of being able to cook at home straight from the freezer.
"As the pastry is only cooked once, it results in a lighter and flakier pastry compared to just warming through a chilled sausage roll.
"We've also ensured that our recipe has the perfect ratio of seasoned vegan sausage to flaky pastry. We can't to hear what people think."
