Frenzied Greggs fans go WILD as the bakery unveil their hotly anticipated Vegan Steak Bake

Greggs fans have given their verdicts on its hotly-anticipated vegan steak bake after they launched nationwide today with fans queuing out the door desperate to try one.   

Frenzied pastry fiends in Newcastle lined up in the freezing cold last night to ensure they got their hands on the £1.55 quorn-based treat. 

The vegan pastry is being rolled at 1,300 Greggs stores across the country today and is made up of 96 layers of no-butter puff pastry, Quorn, diced onion and gravy.    

Delighted fans bragged about their purchases on social media, with one writing on Twitter: ‘Vegan steak bake from Greggs is absolutely amazing I want another 20.’ 

Others were less convinced by the aesthetics, with one customer claiming it ‘looks like cat food’ but ‘tastes great’. 

The eagerly-anticipated steak bake comes a year after the High Street chain launched its famous vegan sausage roll.

Customers queued out the door for a launch party held at a Greggs shop in Newcastle last night, when one thousand fans were given the opportunity to enjoy a first taste of the bake before the rest of the country.

Treats with limited edition packaging were also given away to the first 200 customers.

A Greggs fan called Katie tweeted: ‘Am I in the queue for the Greggs vegan steak bake launch in the freezing cold at 10pm? Of course I am.’ 

A Twitter user called Hannah posted a video of herself eating the new vegan treat with the caption: ‘Live action shot of me trying the Greggs vegan steak bake. I much prefer the vegan sausage roll.’ 

Another elated fan wrote: ‘I GOT A VEGAN STEAK BAKE FROM GREGGS HOLD ME.’

Someone else determined to get their hands on one wrote online: ‘Mission of the day is to get hold of the Greggs vegan steak bake.’

Writing online ahead of the official launch yesterday, one excited fan commented: ‘Feel free to hit me up for any recipe ideas or advice. 

‘Veganism is one of the best things I ever did. Also Greggs Vegan Steak Bake coming soon, I’m so gassed.’

Another added: ‘Why isn’t Greggs vegan steak bake NOW?’

The launch comes exactly a year after the Vegan Sausage Roll which contributed to company sales rocketing up by 13.4 per cent within 12 months.

The new plant-based product also coincides with Veganuary, which sees some Brits give up meat and animal products for the next month.

Greggs has made a store finder so customers can find their nearest branch selling them.

They will be on sale at its remaining 700 of its 2,000 shops from January 16.

A Greggs spokesman said: ‘Greggs has finally put an end to months of speculation by confirming the drop of its Vegan Steak Bake which hits shops today. 

‘The new Vegan Steak Bake means that the UK’s vegans, flexitarians and Meat-Free Monday advocates can enjoy an alternative to one of Greggs’ iconic menu items.

‘The Vegan Steak Bake has been created to mirror some of the original Steak Bake’s classic features, including 96 layers of light and crisp puff pastry, but instead is made with Quorn pieces, diced onions and a gravy filling.’

They added: ‘Greggs’ Vegan Sausage Roll launched in January 2019 to critical acclaim – becoming one of its fastest selling products of the last six years.

‘The Greggs product development team has been working for months on the Vegan Steak Bake recipe, recruiting a whole panel of vegan and non-vegan taste testers to ensure its flavours hit the spot.’ 

Meanwhile 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.

‘The launch of our Vegan Steak Bake is another key milestone on our journey to become our customers’ favourite for food-on-the-go.’

A photo of the new steak bake price sign was leaked last Friday but Greggs remained tight-lipped and wouldn’t comment on speculation of when the bake would launch. 

However, it put out a teaser on its Twitter feed on Monday saying there was just two days until a big vegan announcement.
