Walls Micro Sausages
Advantages: taste, convenience
Disadvantages: price perhaps?
So, I am awaiting quotes for my brand new kitchen and in the meantime am still living out of the microwave and toaster. Its been twelve weeks and the meals are becoming more and more unappealing.
Thank goodness for good old mum having us over 4-5 times a week!
Anyhow imagine my delight at coming across these little beauties. Microwavable sausages !? It couldn't be true could it? Sausages that could be cooked in the microwave and were from a well known brand ? There had to be a draw back and I was assuming it was a compromise on taste.
I found the Walls microwave sausages in the refrigerated section of Asda. They are recognizable by their stylish blue box with fat brown sausages on the front, they certainly look appealing in the picture. They cost £1.98 per box from Asda and recently I spotted them in Tesco for the same price give or take a penny.
They are a little more costly than the regular banger as you only get 6 sausages per box instead of the usual eight links. The weight is 275g. As a comparison Wall's regular pack of 8 thick pork sausages weigh 454g and cost around £1.99.
As per the cooking instructions provided on the box, two sausages should be microwaved for one minute. All six will take only two minutes twenty or as these are freezable three minutes thirty from frozen.
Just pop them on a microwavable plate, cover with a sheet of kitchen roll and away you go!
One of my favourite things about these sausages is that in the box the six sausages are packaged in two's enabling you to open them fresh at any point if not cooking six together.
The shelf life was dated a good two weeks later so they remain fresh if not needed. The sausages are a light brown in colour, fairly thick and wrinkly and not too appealing uncooked. In fact they look like left over cooked sausages cooked the day before. But after a minute in the microwave they are plump, brown and wholly inviting! I was seriously impressed, they have such a golden even colour that would be impossible to achieve cooking regular sausages.
Obviously the most important factor is the taste and again I was not disappointed. They smelt good and were tender. They were not gristly nor were they greasy as I expected. To be honest they reminded me somewhat of café sausages with their even golden colour and plump exterior. They were actually really 'meaty' tasting and had a good texture to them.

I shall definitely be purchasing these again. They are so convenient, taste good and less washing up always makes me a happy bunny. Imagine cooking sausages with no fat running or spitting and ending up with a plump even coloured banger that tastes good ... you've just imagined a Walls microwavable sausage.
Summary: Definately worth keeping in the fridge or freezer for a quick snack
