I was invited to a foodie event last week (my favourite kind!). It was part of the launch of Richmond Chicken Sausages. Hands up who has eaten chicken sausages? Anyone? Nope, me neither. I’ll admit I was intrigued as to what they would actually taste like.
The event was such a lot of fun. We got to meet Angellica Bell who had designed three recipes using chicken sausages instead of usual pork ones. As well as getting to taste the lovely food over a lunch with everyone we got to do some cooking challenges – making a yorkshire pudding and some home made baked beans. Very tasty they were too!
I’ll be trying the chicken sausages on the boys at some point because I think they will like them. There’s always debate about sausages, especially cheaper brands, but a lot of the time they are the only ones kids will eat. Richmonds Chicken Sausages at least are 30% less fat and 20% less calories, but equally as tasty as the usual pork ones. I’d even hazard to say they taste pretty much the same when they are in dishes like casserole or pasta!
I’m going to cook them in my secret stew recipe. It uses dried mushrooms and sundried tomatoes and wine and is so yummy – it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out with the chicken sausages!
As part of the launch I get to do a giveaway – hurrah – of a £25 Tesco voucher so you guys can go out and try your own recipes!
