Herta Classic Frankfurters
Advantages: Really adaptable
Disadvantages: They taste horrible without cooking them
In a shrink wrap plastic packing they look fine if a tad insubstantial, with the red Herta logo and a photo of a couple of frankfurters they look fine, be careful there are no breaks in the packaging though as this means that brine will leak out and this can be a pain to get out of clothes.
The Frankfurters are available in all major supermarkets a 10 pack of classic frankfurters currently costs £1.79 in Tesco and Asda although both do have special offers where you can get 2 for 1 or sometimes get them for around £1.20, we tend to stock up when this is the case and freeze a few packs for when we need them.
These are pre-cooked so you could eat them straight from the pack, but I wouldn't as they taste soggy and a bit sickly, they are best fried or grilled where the oak smoked flavour comes out more and allows you to use them for a variety of things.
What can you use em for?
These are very adaptable, you can make hot dogs with them, use them in pasta, lentil and sausage casserole, use as an ingredient in Chilli Con Carne, in sandwiches, as part of a fry up breakfast as a quick and easy alternative to sausages.
Cooking takes a matter of minutes just to heat and colour them up, the frankfurters themselves are thin slippery things about 4.5 inches long which smell strongly of brine until cooked.
Herta have realised the power of the flexibility of these things and have a list of recipes on their website which is pretty good, www.hertafrankfurters.co.uk the recipes are easy to follow and don't take too long or require too many ingredients which is awesome. The frankfurters have to be refrigerated and can last for a month before use.
A good adaptable fridge ingredient, these can be eaten on their own, with chips, in pasta with rice, in casseroles or in chilli and they taste good, for £1.79 a pack of 10 can easily feed a family of four and can be bought from any good supermarket.
