Add a slice of veggie happiness to your morning.

A veggie-happy start to any day.

Square up your veggie breakfast with our vegan approved square sausage. Packed with all the taste of traditional Scottish Lorne without any of the meat!

You're making us

It tastes exactly the same as the meat option, without the suffering of any cute little animals!

My father and brother (both meat eaters) could also not differentiate from the other, my brother in-fact, preferring this one, “as there are no grisly or chewy bits”.

Fantastic on a nice morning roll with ‘broon or rid sauce’. Great job!

I have been a ‘Veggie’ for seven years now. I missed two things from my previous diet of meat-eating, which consisted of this – black pudding, and double bacon cheeseburgers from BK.

I am now thoroughly satisfied that both cravings have been satisfied. There is, in my rather experienced food tasting palate, not much – if any – difference in texture, nor taste between this pudding, and the original. It is fantastic, and I am feeling rather blessed that this magnificent company have supplied me with one of my favourite tasty treats: that satisfy my ethical dietary needs.

Wish I could give you more than 5 stars for your Vegetarian Haggis! My husband is of Scots descent and doesn’t like haggis (😱) but – as we went meat-free 18 months ago – I thought we should try the veggie version when I saw it in Sainsbury’s. FABULOUS!! We both loved it and will DEF buy it again. Hoping to find your veggie square sausage and black pudding now too!!

Keep up the brilliant work.

It was a special moment when I spotted your vegan white pudding in Tesco.  I bought the whole tray and I wasn’t disappointed!  Absolutely fantastic texture and flavour, and this is the best new vegan product launched this year imho 🙂  I’m on my last pack now and can’t get anymore in the Tescos close to me Peebles Dalkeith and Galashiels.  Are you carrying on with this product?  My life will be a little sadder if you’re not, so fingers crossed!

Once upon a time when I was a meat eater, I absolutely loved your products especially your black pudding and haggis, I knew becoming vegan I would miss the taste……. and then BANG!!! You have only gone and released the absolute best vegan sausage, black pudding an square sausage! Thank you to your amazing development team, what a treat!

Sally Koob Supermarket Review Find a Stockist

I found the veggie breakfast pack whilst on an adventure in Scotland. Amazing! Delicious! This pack makes me so happy.  I started to follow a plant based diet in January 2020 and Simon Howie original black pudding was the one meat product that I just couldn’t do without.  Having found this pack I now have a veggie alternative and I’m over the moon! The taste, texture and flavourings are so similar to their meaty counterparts you would struggle to tell the difference.  Spot on, a win, this veggie breakfast pack is a game changer.  Simon Howie, bravo! Truly a masterpiece! Thanks on behalf of veggies, vegans and plant based peoples everywhere, you’ve truly cracked this one and I’m off to spread the word!!!

The Veggie Breakfast Pack is wonderful. So delicious. The Veggie Black pudding was my favourite & could eat it all day everyday.

Congratulations on creating something so tasty for us vegetarians – even my carnivore husband liked the taste!

The best vegan breakfast pack I’ve tasted. So many things I’ve had in the past try to replicate meat and the texture is strangely similar and the taste awful, but this was all good. The black pudding was delicious as were the sausages and sliced sausage.

After being vegetarian for 4 years, I longed for a full Scottish breakfast. The veggie breakfast pack has changed my life!!! It is by far the best I have tasted. Please please please never stop making this!

We had this in January from Tesco and rated it very highly. I bought another and froze it and we cooked it last week as a Sunday ‘roast’ with a big selection of vegetables, served with vegan gravy and vegan peppercorn sauce. I would buy regularly if it were available in a big supermarket and serve it to anyone, vegan, veggie or omnivore. Well done, you have got this product just right.

Lockdown has meant we have sought to broaden our taste range which is not always easy as one of us is a pescatarian. Burns’ celebration has given us the opportunity to sample your product and we have now had a second sampling as we enjoyed the first one so much. The flavourings have done much to revitalise our flagging tastebuds and we can now look forward to renewing our acquaintance with this excellent product in January (and early Feb) each year.

I bought the Vegetarian Haggis in Littlehampton (Tesco) and it is so amazing I’ll definitely buy it frequently from now on! Easy to cook and the taste is just incredible, really tasteful, even though there are so many ingredients it all blends perfectly. Excellent!

Love it! Always bought your meat haggis but thought becoming a veggie meant the end of our Burns night tea. Saw this and yippee! Husband had the meat one and me the veggie – really tasty and would definitely recommend, plus the added bonus is it’s approved by the Vegan society.

Vegetarian haggis – absolutely delicious. I am a meat eater but my husband isn’t. For me it’s one of the only products where I really couldn’t tell it wasn’t meat and it was such a lovely meal as we could both enjoy it. I made it with carrot, turnip, potatoes and a whiskey sauce. 100% recommend.

This year we have been cutting out meat in order to do our bit for the environment. So Simon Howie Veggie Haggis it had to be and what a pleasant surprise. Tasty and every bit a haggis, actually we say we prefer it and will be trying more of your range. Thanks for making high quality veggie food.

My husband thought it was an excellent black pudding and was shocked when I told him it was the veggie variety. Great textures and flavours exactly like an animal based black pudding should taste. Will be buying this again.

I absolutely love your veggie range.  The breakfast pack is fantastic, so tasty and enjoyable.  My 3 and 5 year olds love it too and we often share a pack for our weekend breakfast treat.  Great to see the products being sold separately as well.  Thank you for producing such a nice veggie range of products.

They are amazing!! They have the texture of a meat sausage and the most wonderful flavour. I’ve tried many vegetarian sausages and without hesitation I’d say they are truly the best! They are also onion and garlic free which is wonderful for allergy sufferers of these ingredients. How they manage to get such an amazing flavour without the use of these must be the envy of every vegetarian product maker in the UK. Well done Simon Howie!!

Amazing! Stopped by a stranger at the vegan range in Food Warehouse, Port Glasgow, I was told all about your vegan square slice, on a roll with a potato scone. I actually joked- was he on commission?! He was so convincing I went straight to Tesco for some.

He’s not wrong – superb weekend treat. My veggie friend and our meat eating partners love them too!

Since turning vegetarian earlier this year, one of the things I have missed is the cooked breakfast. I found this pack and it’s hit the nail right on the head. The first bite of the Lorne sausage I had to check I had picked up the right thing.

Taste and texture are spot on. All tastes so good. As a former meat eater, now I can have a tasty treat again.

The only thing I ever miss since becoming vegetarian is square sausage. I tried your vegetarian version, and know that as long as you keep producing this I will never feel like I’m missing out again!

If I’d been served this without knowing that it was vegetarian sausage I would never have known. The product is even better than the normal square slice.
