Advantages: Tasty, low in fat, easy to cook
Disadvantages: None I love em!
Of late I have been eating alot more healthily and although I'm not a Vegetarian what appealed to me about these sausages was that on the box I'm told they are high in protein and what with working out at the gym alot lately they seemed a good and healthy addition to my eating plan!
Oblong orange box and on the front there is a picture of the sausages and I am told they are Quron '6' Sausages 'Deliciously succulent Quorn sausages perfectly seasoned with onion' and that they are low in saturated fat and as I mentioned previously they are high in protein and then I'm clearly told they are Vegetarian society approved and that the whole product weighs 300g. On the back of the box I'm told a bit about the food, instructions are given on how to cook them, ingredients are listed as is nutritional information and allergy advice and there is bar-code on there. Nice informative looking box...this is.
A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Box....
Mealtimes are too important to have to choose between cooking something healthy, tasty or quick. Now you don't have to make that choice. With Quorn foods you can simply have all three.
How To Cook Quorn Sausages....
Cook from frozen.
Fry sausages in 1 tbsp pre-heated oil over medium heat for 12-14 minutes, turning regularly to cook evenly.
Pre-heat grill at medium setting, brush sausages with oil. Cook for 12-14 mins, turning frequently.
Once Bbq coals have turned white, brush sausages with oil. Cook for 12-14 mins turning frequently.
I absolutely love these and have a new 'healthy' addiction to my diet and believe me as I cooked them I really didn't have high hopes for enjoying these at all as usually I find so called healthy food rather bland!
However these cook really easily. Quite small and pale prior to cooking with a whiff of onion to them I have grilled mine and fried them so far and either way is fine though I personally prefer them with quite a bit of oil in a frying pan because these are rather dry as they are so low in fat content and by frying them I get a little moisture to them and a crispiness I approve of.
Taste wise I simply love them. Filling, healthy and well...meaty these really are. Made of course from mycoprotein (a substance made from fungi) these are not only high in protein, low in fat but are also high in fibre. I find them so sausage like the only give away to me that they are not meat is that they have a taste of healthy about them due to the loss of fat and grissle.
Well seasoned, I like the slight onion flavouring giving them a great flavour and of course you can eat them any way you want to and they make a great addition to say a sausage casserole etc as they don't melt down to nothing but stay firm and bouncy!
I really do recommend these as an alternative to meat, they are tasty, reasonably priced, easy to cook and incredibly versatile! Lovely!
