For breakfast links, I found the Morninstar Farms are good, especially the maple syrup ones (patties actually).

I love the Tofurky Italian sausage, but since its so high calorie, I usually slice it up and put in something inplace of real Italian sausage.

I'm not a big hotdog person. However I absolutely am in love with Tofurky  Brats, they are wonderful in Sauerkraut.

 

Edited for clarification. Tofurky Brats, not Tofu brats

I'd stay away from anything made from non-fermented soy products like TVP, etc.

Scary stuff, happened to me.

 

I'm with Mafium on this one for sure.  I tried Smart Dogs yesterday and nearly yurped.  It was like eating a melted crayon - BLEAH!  I can't find Morning Star Farms hot dogs anywhere...not even on their website.  WHERE are you people finding these???

Boca makes really good Italian sausages that we usually have instead of hotdogs, but if you really want hotdogs, Morningstar dogs are the best.  Morningstar also makes Italian sausages, but oddly not as good as the Boca ones. They're a little mushy in comparison.   These are all in the freezer section.   Smart dogs are in the produce section but stay away!  They are inedible.  A friend of mine calls them fart dogs.  Not sure if that is because of what they do to you or how they taste, lol.

I like Tofu Pups. I think some people have mentioned that they felt like they didn't have much taste but I find them rather subtle and yummy. 

Yves Good Veggie Dogs, taste like canned processed hot dogs. I've always loved canned hot dogs as a kid so I was ecstatic to find that they tasted almost identical!

I do not like MorningStar. Seemed like the first few times it was okay and then around the thrid time I had one I just was like "Ive been fooling my self this is horrible", I was gagging trying eat it. Havent tried any others. After reading this I will have to try Yves though!

I tried the Yves Hot Dog today and .. yuck. I'll be letting my dog have the rest, something to  hide his vitamins in. Are the Jumbo dogs any better? Or am I preparing them wrong (I boiled for 3 minutes) . Its more a taste thing for me than a texture. 

Fry's Vegetarian. The best. So realistic, I feel kind of "dirty" when I eat it. Like after you realise you've accidentaly eaten gelatin or milk. Plus, almost 20 grams of protein per dog!

And they're vegan!

I'll second the tofu pups recommendation. I haven't actually eaten meat since gradeschool so I can't say how realistic they are, but they're pretty low cal/high protein, and yes they have a more subtle flavor than other brands. Just don't try cooking them over a campfire!

My favorite is Yves, hands down. Fry them in a little bit of olive oil, add your toppings, and you wouldn't even notice the difference. Same great taste, none of the slaughtering non-sense.  :D

quorn hotdos they are new and very very tasty and very much like the real thing deliscious with chilli non carni and cheese on them in a soft bappy bun

I like the Yves Spicy Italian Sausages, and I'm trying the Bavarian Sausage tonight.  I'm okay with the taste and texture - but holy sodium Batman!  780 grams in 1 Bavarian sausage?

That's just craziness.

Has anybody besides me tried Vege-Links?  They come in a can and I've never seen them anywhere but our local Adventist grocery.  I'm not a big fake-dog fan, but these I can tolerate.  I think they're a gluten product.
