Simon Howie, a Scottish butcher, has released a vegetarian version of a Scottish breakfast staple – the square sausage. The meat alternative was developed in response to growing demand for options with the rise in flexitarianism. This is the first meat-free version of the breakfast favourite to be made.
The soya-based sausage follows Howie's other vegetarian produces, including wee veggie haggis and vegetarian haggis, products that have seen his sales increase by 24 percent over the past year.
“Lorne, square, sliced, flat, whatever you prefer to call it, Scotland’s square sausage is almost a national dish in itself. To date, there has been no meat-free alternative available, and we are extremely excited to be addressing that. Perfect for a meat-free morning roll, no one has to miss out on enjoying this Scottish classic any more. Whether you’re vegetarian, or simply looking for a meat-free alternative, we hope our customers enjoy this new breakfast sausage.”
