Disadvantages Disgusting, unhealthy and just plain nasty!
I really should learn my lesson and not allow my husband out shopping on his own.
The results of his shopping trips usually result in him buying either the dearest item in the shop or the worst item in the shop; I find it very difficult to comprehend his shopping values.
Unfortunately Tesco didn't have the 2lb bags of Richmond sausages in, so, for some reason known only to him, he picked up 4 packs of Tesco Value Sausages, we was very proud of getting 32 thick sausages for less than £2.00, I was less sure.I put three packs in the freezer and used the other packet on our barbecue.
I beg to differ, and for the amount of barbecues we have in a year I count myself something of an expert on cooking on the barbecue.
I find that any high fat sausages or burgers create far too much of a flame and burn the outsides before the insides are cooked properly.
So that was the barbecue test, I still had three packets of these sausages in my freezer, hating waste I didn't want to throw them away. I don't own a dog and I don't think my hamster and tortoise would enjoy them so I tried a few ways of using them up.
I tried cooking the sausages on a grill rack to drain off the fat.
When cooked they didn't look too bad, but the inside was still sloppy and the sausages needed plenty of brown sauce on to make a half decent 'sausage butty'.
I baked these on a grill tray to drain away the excess fat and to be honest they weren't too bad - far better than the barbecued sausages. It was amazing how much fat came out of the sausages.
I certainly wouldn't recommend deep-frying them.
When I checked the ingredients I realised that there was no surprise for the lack of taste, and certainly the lack of the taste of meat as there is only 40% of meat in them.
