Sainsbury's Basics Thick Sausages
Advantages: cheap, less than 5p per sasage, and you can keep in the freezer for a month.
Disadvantages: none ive noticed.
SAINSBURY'S BASICS 20 THICK SASAGES.
These can be found in the freezer section of Sainsbury's Supermarket.
They come in a recyclable plastic bag and you get 20 thick Sasages in each bag for the mere price of 99p, which i consider to be a really cheap price for a large 1kg bag of sasages. They are really good value for money and i actually would recommend these especially for the months coming up when we all get our barbecues out.
I have cooked these Sasages and eaten them and i would say that among the cheaper end scale of Sasages that these are really not bad at all.
I have cooked mine in a ovenproof dish in the oven you do get a bit of fat come out of these Sasages and even so you can pour this away, i never add cooking fat when cooking these Sasages as they produce their own which in turn helps to cook them and make them go brown, i tend to allow a bit of extra cooking time for these Sasages because they are quite thick.
Energy per sasage..........405kj (cooked as per instructions).
of which sugars.................0.3g.

Cooking Instructions **********
Grill from Frozen.
Preheat grill to a moderate heat, place your sasages on a grill rack, (on the grill pan) and grill for approximately 20 minutes, as these sasages are a little thick i usually cut mine down the middle as i am fussy and like them to cook well in the middle too.
Oven Cook from Frozen **********
I place in an ovenproof dish(without fat) as they tend to produce sufficient enough fat to cook themselves in. Turning halfway during cooking for approximately thirty minutes Electric cooker 190c.
I usually cook mine until they are coated in a brown coloured skin, and i tend to split mine down the middle just because i like to ensure that the middle is cooked as well as i enjoy them.
I like to ensure that i cannot see any pink colouring inside the sasage as i dont like them if they are not cooked enough.
I found that these sasages which are mostly pork, from danish or dutch pork, are really nice i really enjoyed them in a sandwich, with breakfast.
I particularly like to cook them and then add a tin of sainsbury's curry sauce to them pop them back in the oven once i have first chopped the Sasages into bitesized portions and cook for a further quarter of an hour, and serve with rice or bombay alure, and this makes a cheap and tasty meal.
I find that these sasages have a nice flavour and do not taste rancied considering that they are cheap, working it out, they cost less than 5pence each and thats good value for money, i found that they were great to add to sunday cooked breakfast, although i oven cook my Sasages as dont like fried food to much, i found that they were great value for money and tasted just as good as the normal priced Sainsbury's Sasages i have tried before, so was impressed with the price of these little beauties.
With having a large family these were really good value for my money, and i usually buy two bags of these Sasages as they tend to get eaten rather quickly in my house.
My grandchildren loved them with mash, baked beans and a healping of my onion gravy i tend to make to go with the Sasages.
They also are great to serve with chips, but i dont fry mine im afraid i buy oven bakes ones, as they agree with my tummy a bit better than fried ones do.
Allergy Advice **********
Contains Wheat Gluten and also contains Sulphites.
Contains 34 percent pork, water, rusk, pork fat and rind, salt, stablisers, Cardamon, Nutmeg to name but a few, and these Sasages are filled in a beef protein casing.
I also like them cooked with added tomatoes, mushrooms and onions and a Sasage Cassorole mix, served with potatoes, yummy and these Sasages work well in this receipe.
I definetely think that unlike some of the cheaper makes of Sasages these really are great tasting, and they are nice if grilled for part of your weekend breakfast.
Thanks for reading and rating my review.
Summary: I think that these Sasages are great tasting for their price, and i reccomend them.
