“ Brand: Dalepak / Type: Other Ready Meals „
Having previously tried Dalepak's Corned Beek Crispbakes and enjoyed them, I immediately picked up these Sausage & Baked Bean Crispbakes by Dalepak when I saw them in the supermarket.
These Sausage & Baked Bean Crispbakes look exactly like they do on the box (sometimes I find that the image on the box does not accurately portray the food inside the box!). The box describes the crispbakes as "A combination of Baked Beans, Onions, Cumberland Sausage and Tomatoes lightly seasoned and coated in a crispy breadcrumb.".
So, they sound delicious, but are they?
Yes, they are! I wouldn't say there was a lot of Cumberland sausage in these (at least there wasn't in the ones I ate), but you can taste it and they still taste great. They also smell wonderful as you cut into the crispbake. They are not dry, but are adequately moist, the seasoning is detectable, but not overly done. They're certainly ideal for kids and adults.
I would say these crispbakes are the size of small burgers, but much chunkier. I put 2 on a plate along with vegetables or beans & chips... Whatever you fancy, really!
They are easy to cook... You simply take them out of the freezer and pop them in the oven for between 24 and 26 minutes at 200 degrees C, 400 degrees F or Gas Mark 6.
For those of you who count calories etc... 1 crispbake provides 171 calories, 6.6 grams of fat and 0.8 grams of salt. So I don't think they're too bad, health-wise. They do contain wheat (so I shouldn't really be eating them, but they don't cause much effect for me), gluten and soya, for those of you who have food intolerances.
I found these Dalepak Sausage & Baked Bean Crispbakes in Iceland. They come in a box of 4 crispbakes and were a bargain at £1 a box (August/September 2010).
Highly recommended by me!
Dalepak do a range of other crispbakes too, including Minted Lamb Crispbakes, Corned Beef Crispbakes (which I have reviewed in the past), Cheese & Onion Crispbakes, Cheese & Bacon Crispbakes, Mushroom Crispbakes and Vegetable Crispbakes. They're well worth checking out.
