“ Brand: Asda / Type: Stuffing „
When it comes to stuffing it's something I really do love. Who can bear a wonderful roast dinner without some stuffing balls dribbled in gravy?... not me that's one thing for certain lol!
The other day I decided to get some stuffing and couldn't see my usual preferred brand so decided to try Asda's own. I could've gone for an even cheaper one than this but quite simply didn't dare to.... I couldn't bear to eat something cheap and nasty and let it spoil all my hardwork of grafting in a kitchen with blood, sweat and quite possibly tears to prepare me a wonderful roast that could be ruined!
Dark blue oblong box and on the front of it there is photograph of some meat stuffed with what I assume is this stuffing and I'm told in yellow and white writing that it is Asda Sage & Onion Stuffing Mix and that it contains no artificial colours, flavours or hydrogenated fat and that it is suitable for Vegetarians. Other information listed on the box includes ingredients and storage advice being given, a full nutritional chart is listed along with instructions on how to make the stuffing up, the size is stated which in this case is 85g, there is a meal idea listed on there to make a pie, the best before date is clearly stated and contact details for Asda are given. It's a nice enough, informative box and inside the mix is stored inside a clear plastic bag that is easy to open.
Well all you do to make this up is to take the crumbled herby smelling creamy coloured mix into a bowl, add 250ml of water to it, mix it up and cook it in a dish for about 20-30 minutes or of course you can stuff meat (things) with it. Either way it's easy to make and to heat up!
Taste wise this is a great stuffing and I'm rather impressed by it. I was impressed at how easy it was to make up and that although it stuck together say in ball shapes (my preferred way of making them lol) very well remained moist on the inside but slightly more tougher on the outside giving different textures to the overall stuffing. In meat it stays succulent and of course doesn't go too firm on the outside but stays more moist! I have used this stuffing a few times since it's first purchase and think it's quite simply great stuff!
It has a nice taste of onion and sage to it but it also has a nice undertone of parsley and chives to it as well. It's nicely seasoned and all of the flavours are detectable within it!
