Quorn sausages can now be bought from the frozen or chilled sections of most supermarkets.
When buying frozen they used to come in packs of 6 in a cardboard box which was good for the environment as it could be recycled. Now the frozen ones tend to come in a bag which can not be recycled.
I am not reviewing the newer sausages which are the hot dog style ones.
I buy the frozen sausages and there are about 8 in a bag for £2.
When you take the sausages out of the bag they are pink in colour and can be cooked by (well I have cooked them all this way) grilling, frying or putting in the oven. They are quite fat sausages so need to be cooked thoroughly. Once cooked they do go a bit wrinkly.
I rarely fry them and when grilling because they are quite fat I cook them very slowly and they take at least 20 minutes as I have to be sure they are cooked, if I put them in the oven I cook at 200 and they take about 20 minutes. So I find it easier to put them in the oven as i can then get on with other things without worrying if they are going to burn.
Once cooked these sausages don't go a real good brown colour and are quite light brown.
I like the taste of these a lot more than I used to or that could just be because the other sausages I used to have, have changed and are not as nice.
I think they have a nice herby flavour but can leave you with a bit of a dry mouth if eaten alone.
There are lots of meals that these sausages can go with, I like them with mash, veg and gravy. I also like them cold with salad on a wrap.
Each sausage contains about 70 calories they have herbs and garlic in which will be why they are quite tasty.
Summary: good sausages
