Sausages. I lose count of the amount of sausages we go through every month; especially the boys, they eat so many! The sausage hunt on Slimming World is a whole other story, as a really tasty juicy sausage will cost a lot of syns. If I want a bog standard sausage I will probably just use SW (or dare I say it, Weight Watchers) ones, but I don’t mind spending my syns on a more premium sausage sometimes.
The lovely people at MOR recently sent us some of their premium sausages to sample. Because they’re packed with nutritional veg they are also lower in fat – always a bonus on Slimming World!
MOR are everything you love about traditional sausages, but certainly not what you’d expect. By blending high-quality British meat with nutritious vegetables, fragrant herbs, and delicate spices, we’ve created sausages with unforgettable flavours inspired by foods from all over the world.
We were sent a pack of each of the flavours of MOR sausages. To me, they sounded premium immediately and they looked really good too; they also smelled amazing and I couldn’t wait to tuck in! The packaging was really fun, with eye catching colours and I really liked the descriptions of the ingredients on the back.
We thought these would be perfect on a BBQ so they were the first ones we tried when we actually had some decent weather (what has happened to that now?!). As they are chipolatas, they are skinnier than the other sausages but there are more in a pack. I love the golden colour of them, even before cooking, and the little specks of colour coming through. Due to being made with chicken they are quite low in fat, but they are still really juicy, and the tomato & basil tastes summery but doesn’t overpower the chicken. The boys are a bit fussy with sausages of flavour and even they liked these.
We also tried these sausages cooked on the BBQ, as they were the ones I liked the sound of the most! I’m a bit of a sucker for a sweet sausage… Pork & apple are a popular flavour for sausages, but the beetroot added to these makes them just that bit more special. They have quite an earthy flavour but the apple brings out the sweetness, though it isn’t too overpowering. They had a wonderful succulency to them.
I’m not really a fan of chickpeas so I was a bit dubious of these – plus I’d never have thought of putting cauliflower in a sausage! I needn’t have been dubious though, as they were surprisingly tasty. The chickpeas did give a slightly different texture to the sausages. The spices of coriander and harissa really complemented each other, and the other flavours; harissa is quite spicy, but I don’t mind spice, as I think you may know by now!
I have to admit, these sounded the least appetising of all; though the ones with the most goodness, due to the veg and lentils. A bit more excitement came when I saw that they had a hint of sweet chilli, one of my favourite flavours. I decided to do something a bit different with these though and bake them in the oven with some shallots, so look out for a recipe coming soon. Again, I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty they actually were. The lentils weren’t really noticeable but the green veg gave a different vibe. The sweet chilli hint set the flavours off nicely.
MOR sausages are a whole load of juicy goodness and deliver a wonderful taste sensation with every mouthful.
