Morrisons Nu Me Reduced Fat Pork Sausages

My family love eating a full English cooked breakfast and needless to say, I ensure it’s as low in fat and calories as possible. One of the most essential ingredients of a cooked breakfast is the sausage. However, many sausages are full of unhealthy saturated fat, making that breakfast exceedingly unhealthy.

Fortunately, there are many reduced fat sausages in the supermarkets and I've bought many brands over the years. Last week we tried out a 50% reduced fat sausage from the Morrisons Nu Me range. Each sausage has 62 calories.

A 454g pack of Morrisons Nu Me Reduced fat sausages contains 8 un-linked sausages. They’re described as: Perfectly peppery lean British pork sausages. And they have 50% less fat than Morrisons standard butcher’s style thick pork sausages.

They’re easy to cook, either shallow fry or grill for 15-20 minutes. Cooking them under the grill as I do, they release virtually no fat. This is a good sign, however they can burn quite quickly if the heat is too high or you don’t turn them frequently enough.

Before cooking
For a sausage containing 72% pork, they were surprisingly meaty and very firm. They have a mildly spicy taste which just perks up the bland sausage flavour to make them very tasty. Well, my 16 year old son couldn’t praise them enough and everyone else devoured the lot quite happily.

After grilling
Verdict: A decent tasting, good sized sausage, with a waist friendly calorie value. I’ll happily buy these again.

Available in 454g packs in Morrisons Supermarkets.
