Camping Sausage

Posted by trktos on 21-November-2009

I revisited my earlier flavorless sausage and the outcome was much better. I made these for a recent camping trip and they kept quite well, for 3 days, in our cooler (of course, it was also pretty chilly outside, too, so that helped).

I didn’t get any photos but seitan sausages all look pretty similar.


  • 1 box vital wheat gluten (6.5 ounces)
  • 6 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground fennel
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground sage
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp A1 sauce
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 9 tbsp marmite water
  • 12 tbsp water


  • Combine ingredients. Form into 7-8 log shaped pieces.
  • Wrap each piece in aluminum foil.
  • Steam, in a pressure cooker, for 15 minutes (after pressure is achieved). Slow cool/release pressure.


  • Next time, I’ll be after a little more flavor. Maybe more marmite or bouillon. Some more spice and they’d also make a good pepperoni.
  • I’d also like to try baking these as their texture is fairly soft when warm but good/firm when cold.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
