Quorn Sausage Rolls
Advantages: Really tasty, meat free, easy to cook
I have been a vegetarian for over half my life now; since I was 11 years old and it always amazes me how readily available vegetarian food is nowadays compared to 10 years ago. One product that is still fairly new to the market are Quorn Sausage Rolls.
The Quorn sausage rolls come in the usual style of Quorn products, with the usual orange colour. The sausage rolls come in a box with a picture of the sausage rolls on the front, along with a description of the product.
On the back of the box is all the usual information such as the nutritional information and cooking instructions.
I buy this product at Tesco's where a box costs £1.65. The box contains 6 sausage rolls and the box weighs 300g.
This product comes from the frozen section and you should cook the sausage rolls from frozen. You need to place the sausage rolls on a baking tray, brush the sausage rolls with milk or beaten egg and then pop into the oven on Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes.
The Sausage Roll
When you first get the sausage roll out of the box it looks really pale and is almost white in colour. Each sausage roll measures about 4cm x 9cm.
Once the sausage rolls have been cooked, the raise slightly from the un-cooked state and are a light golden brown colour. The top of the sausage rolls has grooves across it and these look more prominent once it has been cooked.
Surprisingly, this product actually smells just like real meat sausage rolls with a nice mixture of the pastry and the Quorn meat inside! They certainly smell very appetising.
These sausage rolls are delicious and are one of my favourite snack items. The pastry is light and crispy and the Quorn meat inside tastes just like a real meat product. Even my boyfriend (who is a meat eater) really enjoys this product and thinks it tastes like the real thing. The meat inside tastes slightly of herbs which is probably down to the chives and sage which are listed in the ingredients. The meat inside the sausage rolls holds together really well and doesn't crumble as you eat it.
I would definitely recommend this product. I gave up eating meat because of my love of animals rather then a dislike for the taste of meat, so for me, having a product like this is lovely as it allows me to enjoy eating a sausage roll without feeling the guilt. Some people often assume that vegetarian products are a little expensive but that isn't the case with this product as I think that £1.65 is a reasonable price for 6 sausage rolls. I also like the fact that this product is frozen so you can keep them in the freezer to snack on whenever you like!
