Asda Extra Special Sausages
Advantages: Yummy; Spicy and peppery
Disadvantages: The skins shrivel a bit
There are quite a few different sausages that Asda do in their Extra Special range but the ones I'm going to write about is the pack of 6 Cumberland sausages. They're not the ring ones but normal straight sausages, they look rank before cooking because they are so pale and I always think the green bits in raw Cumberland sausages make them look like they're going rotten! lol
They are yummy though. I thought they took a lot longer to cook than other Cumberland sausages I've cooked lately and they don't brown very evenly either so it's a bit hard to tell when they're cooked through.
The taste of the sausages when they're cooked is lovely, proper comfort food. They have got a wicked spicy flavour that is a bit peppery too, the sausagemeat stays a bit wet inside and I know that sounds horrible but it makes the texture of them just right.
The sausages are firm and take more chewing than Richmond and some of the other brands of sausages. I wasn't mad keen on the skins of these sausages because on a couple of them the skin split and kinda shrivelled up along the sausage. That made them look a bit weird and also meant there was too much skin on at least one bite of each sausage.
I love how meaty they are and have served them in loads of different ways. I've cooked them in the oven and also in the George Foreman and both methods have been the same, they leaked shedloads of fat when I did them in the GF so I reckon that's probably the best way to get rid of as much as possible.
I had 2 with mash, peas and gravy tonight and they were yummy but I've eaten them on their own or with chips too. My mum used them in a yummy sausage casserole the other night and it was the best one she's made I reckon because the spicy sausages added another level of flavour to it.
These sausages cost £2.28 but the Asda sausages are quite often on special offer and they can be frozen so you might save a few quid by stocking up then.
