Slimy sprouts with hardly any chestnut/bacon
Awful, please don't spoil your Christmas with these! Sprouts with chestnuts and bacon are a regular on our Christmas table and i ordered these ahead of the big day thinking i might save time. Firstly i noticed there were very few chestnuts and bacon in the bag so i decided i had better check them before the big day, i'm so glad i did. There was so little flavour, hardly any chestnuts or bacon and the sprouts themselves turn out slimy when oven cooked as per the instructions. I only used a third of the sprouts but all of the accompanying chestnut/bacon bits and still it was awful so the rest of the sprouts are going in the bin. Awful, awful things! Sorry Tesco, you excel in so many ways but these are a fail.
del boys xmas treat
luvvly jubbly cus .
If you like brussels, you will like these
Bought them because I love brussels and was looking for just frozen ones, when I saw these and thought I would give them a try. Had them with slow cooked gammon. Cooked brussels in microwave. Having had them the previous night with something else, but that night oven cooked at wrong temperature, I burnt them but it was my fault. Still tasted nice though!! They had a lovely buttery, chestnut flavour. Not many chestnuts in the pack though is only complaint
Don’t bother - awful
I’d give these 0 out of 5 if this review allowed. Absolutely dreadful. I bought these to trial stupidly thinking Christmas planning! I cooked them exactly as given on the instructions. Dreadful flavour - don’t bother. They smell of something indescribable. My advice, buy fresh sprouts, prepare then drop in boiling salted water for 4 minutes. Drain then add to smoked back bacon which you sautéed off until crispy then add Knob of butter and your chestnuts - just warm through for 2-3 minutes. Serve, absolute delicious.
Just awful. I think it's the smoked flavour that is the problem. Whole bag ended up in the bin.
