Having been a regular buyer of these over the past few years, I would just like to write a review to share my own thoughts on them. Coming from Sainsbury's, they cost £1 (as it says on the packet) and are sold in the freezer section around the rest of the other frozen vegetable/ potato style products.

Their style is that they are what I guess you could call as mashed potato but in a breadcumb outer casing, and are shaped very much like a torpedo or a long rectangle style object but that is rounded off at the edges. It is not quite the consistency of mashed potato on the inside, as this particular product has a little bit bit more of a thicker substance to it.

But with this said and with this in mind, it is still something that is soft enough for people to eat who may suffer with various eating and/ or swallowing issues - providing of course, that they remove the outer breadcumb style layer if this causes them any issues with eating and so on.

Ideal to eat in place of any other potato type product, in the oven for a whole packet to cook it would take around 20 minutes or so to cook in the oven. I cannot actually comment on cooking terms in light of it actually in fact going in the microwave, asa although I am aware of the instructions for this being on the outside of the packet along with that of the oven guidelines I have never put them in the microwave as of yet though - and I have been using these as I said for quite some time.

In terms of how much is in each of the packets, it is enought to feed four normal sized adults with normals apetities so that each person could easily have a good half a dozen croquettes or so and there still be a few left over at the end of the meal. It is a good substitute for any other pitato based product that you may have been using, and looks just as much at home on your plate with a roast as it does with a fry up!

I cannot thoroughly recommend this enough to you regardless of what your needs are, and I hope that this review has given you enough 'food for thought' if you pardon the expression for at least being a bit of a daredevil and trying these out!

Thanks for reading.
