Customers brand Greggs vegan steak bake as ‘dry, salty and barely edible’

Greggs has just released its latest vegan option a ‘steak’ bake. 

The UK’s largest chain of bakers, launched its meat free sausage roll exactly a year ago.

The new bake is made from meat-substitute Quorn, includes puff pastry, along with diced onions and a gravy filling.

It’s on sale at 1,300 Greggs around the country from Thursday, January 2 and costs £1.55.

One customer said: ”I wouldn’t say I was a massive fan of a normal steak bake but would happily scoff one if I was too late for a bacon sandwich.” 

”My first thoughts when I shoved this vegan “fake bake” into my gob was that the pastry looked a bit dry and you do notice the lack of butter in the pastry.”

”The sauce tasted pretty similar but you could taste the difference from the meat steak bake. I also found there was quite a salty aftertaste that took a while to shake off.”

”I couldn’t tell from the texture it wasn’t meat.”

”Overall it was edible but I probably wouldn’t buy one again!”

Greggs chief executive Roger Whiteside said: “Our vegan sausage roll launch was a huge success and we’ve been working tirelessly to expand our vegan friendly offering and provide more delicious savoury food on-the-go options for people looking to reduce their meat intake.
