Walls Irish Sausages
I love a suasage butty. Weather it be square sausage or link sausage. The best is 2 link sausages cut down the middle so they fill a roll, a little butter on the roll and a nice splat of Tomato sauce (or occassionally brown). Lovely.
My husbands favourite brand of sausage is Richmonds. I think they are nice as well and although they are promoted as Irish sausages (does that make them fancier than english and so on?) I think they are tasty. They also have a bit spice to them, but not overly.
These are sold fresh in the chiller section and tend to have a use by date of perhaps 6 days on them from when I buy them, which is average. They come in packs of 8 sausages and the weight is 454g. The price of these can vary, but supermarkets are cheaper than your local convenience store. I got mine out of my local today, but that's because they are less than half price at £1.09. The normal price here is £2.29, which I wouldn't be happy paying. I'd say in Asda they normally cost £1.79.
Packaging is the normal for a pack of raw sausages. Just a cellophane wrapper around them. the sausages are connected in 2's and easy to cut apart. The wrapper has a green band down the bottom and white up the top with Richmond in black lettering against the white part. There is a small section in the middle which is see through and you see the sausages.
So why pay a bit more for a sausage? After all you can get budget sausages for about 50p for 8. Why not buy them? Well I find that budget sausages can often have a kind of gritty taste and there can be stringy bits of nasty bits from the animal chucked in to bulk them out. I'm sure Richmond sausages aren't perfect, but they do seem like smooth, good sausages.
Nutritional information per sausage
However this is the information per uncooked sausage, so wonder what they would be like when they shrink a bit and are shiny with grease? I cook mine in the George Foreman grill and although it can take a while for them to cook, as least you see the grease dripping out onto the tray.
These tend to keep a bit moisture when cooked and don't go all dried out or curly, which is good. Hard to sum up the taste of these. They just taste really meaty, nice sausage taste with a dash of spice.
A great sausage on the market.
