Linda McCartney Vegetarian Sausages Review
These Vegetarian sausages come 6 in a pack and claim to be filled with “…a great big dollop of mash, oodles of gravy and some steamed green beans” which sounds like some great tasting sausages so great in fact that I wouldnt even care if they had meat or not in them. But sadly those poetically described ingredients couldnt be found, not by my tastebuds anyways.
These sausages actually look quite appealing on the outside because they’re bumpy not smooth and I expected a softish center oozing with brown gravy like the box said but as you can see it just looks like the normal MDF looking insides that you find in most regular veggie sausages. And where’s the veg? If you could spot any resemblance of anything green in the pic I’ll buy you a pack myself.
The initial taste is very salty then you get a flavour that is OK, similar to a meat sausage but with a slight plastic like background taste but its actually quite salty throughout.
Do I like it? Its a decent enough generic store bought frozen veggie sausage but its just too salty I think, for me anyways. Would I buy it again? If I’m in a push, and I needed to pick up some from the local supermarket(which doesn’t have that much choice) I probably would only because they are much better than the same sized Quorn sausages which were worse(see review)
