If you find yourself getting weak in the knees at the thought of a good pan-fried sausage, take heart. Close your eyes and you will swear that Boca Meatless Breakfast Patties are the real thing -- same consistency, same flavor, yet half the calories and none of the saturated fat.
Eat two patties and you will end up with 160 calories, eight grams of good-for-your-heart unsaturated fat, and a nice dose of soy protein to help lower your cholesterol.
Not to be outdone, Boca competitor Yves Veggie Cuisine, known for its smashing, bring-on-the-mustard and sauerkraut meatless weiners, has come out with its own version.
