Morrisons do it again!
I have seen sausage rolls manufactured commercially in long product runs. To be able to do this, the meat has to be fatty to enable it to be extruded through nozzles into the uncooked dough that is to become the surrounding pastry.
I have also eaten long-run commercial sausage rolls and quite enjoyed them - but not from Morrisons!
PLEASE NOTE. Morrisons do a wide range of pastries with meat fillings. This review relates ONLY to the 'in-store bakery' sausage rolls that are about 7 inches in length, that are commonly found behind the service counter, and sometimes found as 'special deals' of a multi-buy pack, store-wrapped in a brown paper lunch bag.
PASTRY. I am impressed by Morrisons bakery products - and this includes their bread, confectionary, morning goods etc. The pastry is just fine.
MEAT FILLING. Bite into the sausage roll. The first impression is of a nicely balanced herbed product. Take a couple of chews and the dream is shattered. Greasy, greasy, greasy! I know that a certain amount of fat is needed to allow the 'sausage slurry' to be extruded onto the dough prior to baking. But does it really need THIS much FAT?
And where does the meat come from? Far too many lumps of fat, sinew and gristle.
No thank you. I will not be buying any more unless I need to grease my car's axles.
None given on the serving bag. I wonder why? Would probably equal a tub of whale blubber for fat content (except for the bits of sinew and gristle)
