Field Roast: A Go-To Package of Goodness

I recently discovered Field Roast products at my Whole Foods, which left me wondering why I didn't pick them up sooner. I am IN LOVE with their Smoked Apple Sage Sausage. IN LOVE. My favorite way to eat it is super simple, too. It's become my go to meal on a weeknight where I want something quick and delicious.

First, I lightly pan fry the sliced sausage until it's crispy. I set the sausage aside on a plate. In the same pan, I quickly steam a bunch of kale. I toss the kale with lemon juice, salt, pepper, and a little Earth Balance. I put the kale in a serving dish, top it with the sausage, and squeeze a little more lemon juice on top. So simple and so, so good.

I recently tried the Celebration Roast, which was also very good. For this meal, I sliced and lightly pan fried the roast. I plated it with some creamy mashed potatoes with fresh parsley and garlic, and steamed kale (topped with s, p, Earth Balance, and lemon juice). It was VERY good. Next time I'll think about making a gravy to go on top, but it really didn't need it.

My local WF carries the Celebration Roast, Smoked Apple Sage Sausage, Mexican Chipotle Sausage, Italian Sausage, and some deli cuts. I've only tried the first two. I guess I should remedy that!


  1. Seriously great looking meals! I aven't tried the sausage or the roast, but I have had the meatloaf, and it is quite tasty!!! I saw you over at Alicia's blog and thought I would pop over! Viva

  2. All are very good. The Chipotle is very spicy.

  3. Field Roast is my new favorite, I like them all. They have a "meatloaf" which is good, but very high in fat!!!

  4. Thanks for sharing these recipes! I have not yet tried this brand but have been researching it and look fwd. to it!

  5. Looks great. What would you say the price is like? WF is generally expensive, so I'm always curious. (:

  6. Thanks for your comments, all. I'll have to try the chipotle and the meatloaf!

    Ashley, I'm guessing the price doesn't change much from store to store. I think the roast was around $8, which served as a main dish for two meals for two people. Still cheaper than a lb of steak, no?

    For some things WF is definitely cheaper than "normal" grocery stores. They just tend to sell higher quality products, which is reflected in their prices.
