High wastage during cooking but good eaten cold
I cook sausages by baking in the oven, as I like the slightly caramelised taste. I normally buy them from a local butcher but thought I'd try these as I'm shopping online more. These sausages shrink a lot more than most sausages, due to the huge amount of fat that comes out. I had to keep pouring fat out of the dish and the sausages kept getting smaller and smaller. They also didn't brown well despite setting the oven much higher than usual, so ended up looking quite anaemic. The fat seemed to form a watery bath so the sausages were steaming or boiling instead of baking/roasting. The resulting small sausages didn't taste of much until they cooled down, at which point the taste and texture were absolutely fine and the casing was excellent. They make a pretty decent cold sausage sandwich, and because of that I would buy them again, although the amount of wastage during cooking means I'll be looking out for special offers
As others have said before the skin is tough and t
As others have said before the skin is tough and they are very, very fatty. Do not put in a casserole or you will not be able to eat it because of the amount of fat that leaches out.
Very fatty sausages
The amount of fat that came out of these sausages was horrendous. I was shocked. They tasted ok, but were not a smooth sausage.
Poor quality and taste
Poor quality and taste
Always buy these <3
97% pork and no sugar! Even the Heck 97% ones have sugar in.. Only sausages I can eat from tesco with my diet for health problems. Never had a problem with them. I cook them in the oven or dry non stick pan. They do get a lot of fat run off but I just drain it off. I will say they do not have as 'nice' taste as other sausages. But that's because most others contain sugar. They taste lovely to me but taste changes when you are forced to give up the white stuff ;)
Not worth the extra cost
Not what I was expecting from the Finest collection. Texture is gristly and the skin chewy.
"Finest" they are not
Very very fatty. Not a nice taste and as others have said, very tough case. The dripping fat caused quite a flame on the barbecue ! Have had this pack in the past and always been happy. What has changed.? So much of what I used to buy at Tesco has changed and not for the better. I don't mind paying a bit extra for good quality but not for a lot of what seems to be labelled "Finest" these days. It's not !
Not Tesco Finest!!!
Very fatty they were cooked very slowly on the BBQ but were tasteless and extremely oily. Not Tesco finest!
Taste good, too much fat
Taste is good but to much fat coming out and they’re swimming in it whilst grilling, will not buy again.
Very tough skin, difficult to eat, also very fatty whilst gooking
