I finally got out my ingredients and Made seitan (wheat gluten) patties today. I was trying for a sausage like flavor. I got carried away with the seasonings, especially the salt. The texture came out about as I expected it but next time I will cut back on seasonings and add them in sauces or gravies instead.
I had one recipe for baked seitan and one for boiled. I used the ingredients for the baked recipe but cooked it in broth instead of backing. I saved the broth for a future gravy base.
I froze what I didn't eat today, so I will be anxious to see if it handles the freeze/thaw process ok.
Since it is so salty, I will try it with some red beans in a burrito first to see if I can balance out the flavors. Whole wheat tortilla, red beans, brown rice, fresh salsa, lettuce, onion, and maybe a little non-fat yogurt.
