“ Brand: Tony's chippy / Type: Frozen Food „
Both me and my flatmate/bestmate love what we think of as snacky foods which tend to be incredibly unhealthy for us. If we could we would live on takeaways however we can't always afford it and so we do get stuff in the weekly shop we couldn't normally afford to buy out and that is why we bought a bag of frozen chips and some of these sausages in batter for tonights tea last week lol!
I spotted these in Asda costing £1.00 for a bag of them (and they are available for around that price at all good supermarkets etc) and it was actually the packaging that caught my eye and made me take a peek at them.
The plastic bag is dark blue and white with a checked theme going on and then there is a picture of Tony (cartoon man) and we are told that they are Tony's Chippy 10 Pork Sausages In Batter 'Made to Tony's traditional chip shop recipe using the finest premium pork sausages in crispy batter' and that they give 'Chip shop taste - straight from the oven' and that they must be cooked straight from frozen, that they take 6 minutes to deep fry and that the weight of the bag is 400g. On the back of the bag other information listed includes being told how to cook them, ingredients and allergy advice is given, there is a small nutritional chart shown and contact details for T.S Foods Limited are given. Easy to open bag but a pain to reseal....it is!
The Battered Sausages:
Well they are small and best cooked from frozen which is what I did. Now I cooked them two ways in one night...let me explain! The first 4 of the sausages I cooked for me and my mates tea in the oven and they were so gorgeous that just as I got the frying chips out of my deep fat fryer we decided on eating the rest of them! Either way though is great to cook these though oven cooking takes 25 minutes and on the back of the bag we are also told that we can gril them in 8-10 minutes and also shallow fry them which takes about 7-8 minutes.
When cooked (either of the ways I have listed) I ended up with a golden and even coated batter, not too thick but really crispy and it really did taste a little greasy just like one from the chippy usually does! The sausage inside is whole but small and skinless, is well seasoned though does appear aneamic however taste great to us! They do have small hard lumps of gristle in them but really, this is a very small amount indeed.
These simply are wonderful. Tasty, crispy and crunchy batter with a nice seasoned and soft sausage in I want to go straight back to Asda now and get some more.....we have ran out and I feel deprived! A nice treat though not a healthy one to be fair! lol.
