Pan-Fried Beyond Sausage
Beyond sausage has a mild flavor that pairs beautifully with various herbs and spices. Try adding garlic powder, paprika or onion powder prior to cooking for an added punch of flavor – or marinate it in your favorite herb-and-spice mix for even greater intensity of taste!
Heat a nonstick skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add a small amount of oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking, before adding your Beyond sausage and cooking it until browned on both sides. For baking purposes, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit before baking 15-20 minutes until fully cooked through.

Grilled Beyond Sausage
Beyond Meat has recently introduced veggie sausage links as an exciting and tasty way to enjoy plant-based protein. Similar to regular pork sausages, these veggie links can be enjoyed in various dishes for their delicious taste and texture that is sure to please both vegans and meat eaters alike! Try them in sandwiches or wraps; pasta dishes; stir fry dishes; even casseroles!
These tasty links have a delightful smoky taste and crisp up beautifully on the grill, forming a tasty exterior that’s both flavorful and low in fat and calories. Try marinating them or just seasoning with salt, pepper and smoked paprika for an easy yet flavorful low-calorie option that doesn’t compromise taste or nutrition.
Be sure to grill them over high heat for maximum results, just as with other forms of meat such as hamburgers and bratwurst, so they reach an internal temperature of 165F before being consumed as this ensures they are completely cooked and safe to consume, as undercooked meat can lead to foodborne illness.
Baked Beyond Sausage
Beyond sausage is a versatile product, capable of being prepared on any surface from grilling, pan frying and baking to microwave use. They come packaged in an edible sodium alginate casing which can either be removed or left intact and cooks up just like traditional meat sausage. High in protein but lower in fat than pork-based counterparts!
Be creative: use them for sandwiches and wraps, scrambled with just eggs and your preferred condiments for breakfast, or cut up and added to pasta dishes or salads. Add even more flavor by marinating in an aromatic mixture of olive oil, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika before cooking.

Roasted Beyond Sausage
Beyond Sausage patties are available from frozen and can be cooked either on the stovetop or oven. To prevent sticking, lightly grease the griddle or pan prior to cooking with oil. If using an oven, place patties on a tray and cook them at 350 degrees F for approximately 8 minutes with flipping halfway through; when fully cooked they should feel firm to the touch with browned sides.
Use a meat thermometer to monitor the internal temperature of your sausage. When it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit, your sausage is safe to consume.
