Advantages: Tasty, Cheap on offer, Simple to cook
Disadvantages: None from me.
I have always been a fan of the Quorn range even before I committed to a vegetarian diet. It's healthier than meat, easy to prepare. The only problem being that it is more expensive to buy than most meats. Which for me I find quorn to be more flavourful and it keeps me fuller for longer, being that it is low in fat and high in protein.
I guess some people will be thinking if you're a vegetarian why would you want to eat something that resembles a meat product? Well for me there is a simple answer to that, it tastes great! And the fact you're getting something that taste nice without any meat/animal fats in is a bonus.
Over the years Quorn have updated these sausages a couple of times and now I think they have got them just right! I just hope they don't change the recipe in anyway again now. They are trouble-free to cook via hob, grill or oven or even in your chosen recipe.
Quorn have for me got the right texture and consistency as when they are cooked the texture is firm but soft to chew making this a perfect sausage. The smell when cooking is very aroma full within the kitchen, as you can smell all the herbs and spices within the mix; they are even great for that cheeky sausage and egg sandwich on a morning.
The taste is just wonderful either on there own or within a recipe, in a casserole they seem to take on the flavour from the meal but at the same time it doesn't lose that sausage taste and texture. Eating them on there own you can taste the certain herbs which really add great flavour, making them not bland in anyway at all.
I do love the flavour of these sausages and other sausages within the quorn range I must admit, I have served these to my partner and I don't have any complaints being that he is the meat eater in my household. You can make them as fancy as you like or as basic as you like and still get great results either way. Great tasting comfort food at its best!
They look just like meat sausages and cook in more or less the same way and if you are a meat eater who is trying to watch the fat/calories this would be a great alternative. These come in a plastic container with a cardboard sleeve, in the normal Quorn green and orange packaging.
How to cook:
To fry your sausages add one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat for eight minutes turning frequently. If you are cooking from frozen you will need to add and extra four minutes.
To grill your sausages put your grill at medium setting, brush the sausage with a little oil and cook for around eight minutes again turning frequently. Cooking from frozen will need to add another four minutes to the cooking time.

Price and Availability:
Right now these are on special offer at Asda for only £1.00 per a box of six sausages; they are in the refrigerated section however they are suitable for home freezing.
They can be purchased from most supermarkets but so far I have found Asda to be cheaper and have a good stock every time I go.
Normally price is around £1.98 which for six sausages I think is still good value for money.
I love these Quorn sausages; they taste great, healthier and easy to cook. What is also nice about these sausages is that they are versatile within preparing a meal. I have done sausage casserole, toad in the hole, plan and simple sausage and mash but also tried different mash to go with the sausages.
Here is a nice recipe - www.quorn.co.uk/recipes/Quorn_Sausage__Colcannon_M ash.aspx
As I think it's always nice to try new things with foods, this stops the meal from coming repetitive and boring.
Five out of five stars from me.
Thanks for reading :o)
These used to be Quorn bangers if you can remember them by that name; they have been up-dated for a long time now to sausages. They now have different packaging and a different quorn logo too.
