Last week seen the celebration of one of my favourite foods, Sausages, and to help me celebrate British Sausage Week, the good people at Debbie & Andrew's sent me some of their wheat, gluten and dairy free sausages to put through their paces.
I've been a fan of the Debbie & Andrew range of sausages for a number of years and love the fact that I can pick up their delicious porky sausages in most of the supermarkets.
From a small family business to a brand that graces the shelves of supermarkets across the country, Debbie & Andrew's continue to use the highest quality meat from British Red Tractor assured farms.
I was sent two packs to try, Perfect Pork and Perfect Cumberland. We had the Prefect Cumberland simply. Fried and served with creamy mashed potato and onion gravy. The sausages have a high meat content and because of this, they don't release much fat back into the pan so it's important to keep turning them otherwise they could easily burn. The Cumberland sausage is made from prime cuts of meat and heavily seasoned with green and pink peppercorns which provide a subtle florals taste with a nice kick of peppery heat. The Perfect Pork is a simpler affair made from just the best minced pork meat which is lightly seasoned and bound with specially baked-breadcrumbs. When you've got great ingredients, you don't need to do much to make them stand out and The Perfect Pork is a great example of this. Firm, juicy, and well seasoned - a very good sausage indeed.
I know that there are so many ways to enjoy the noble sausage, maybe in a sandwich or sausage casserole but I can't think of anything better than serving up a couple of tasty bangers with chips and fried egg. What do you think of my sausage and egg scarecrow face?
I would like to thank the team at Debbie & Andrew's for sending me some of their fantastic sausages and helping me get involved in British Sausage Week.
