Low Carb TVP Sausage Patties

Low Carb TVP Sausage Patties Each of these low-carbohydrate patties has about 1 1/4 effective carbs, and they are delicious. Use stevia in making them if possible, because it has zero carbs and is an all-natural sugar substitute. You may want to make a double or triple batch of these. If you have leftover patties, freeze them for another day.
