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.
