Banquet food products are known for their convenient preparation and inexpensive price. But is easy preparation and saving a few dollars worth if if the product does not taste good? That answer would be No. Luckily, with Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links, saving a few dollars and a few steps in the kitchen does not mean you have to sacrifice good taste. Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links have a delicious sausage flavor.
I love sausage. I enjoy a sausage sub sandwich from time to time, frequently cook sausage in my crock pot to accompany my pasta and especially love sausage with my eggs. Not the healthiest food item to be consumed regularly, I still enjoy it and make food allowances for the rest of the week to allow for the extravagance in calories. Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links is a flavorful sausage product for an affordable price. A package of ten fully cooked sausage links costs approximately $1.79.
Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links are a snap to prepare when time is short. They simply need to be heated through and can be on the table within six minutes. Instructions on the box give easy to follow directions for pan or microwave heating. Since i am usually using the stove to cook scrambled eggs to serve with the sausage, I opt for the microwave heating. Placing the links on a paper towel on a microwave safe plate, cook on Medium to High for thirty seconds to five minutes depending on how many links are being heated, and whether the Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links are frozen or thawed. Pausing the microwave and rearranging the sausage links mid way through the heating process greatly evens out the temperature of the sausage. After allowing to sit for a few moments to cool, Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links are now ready to be served. This product is a flavorful side dish to scrambled or sunny side up eggs and hash browns or toast.
As stated earlier, Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links are not the healthiest choice in breakfast fare. If you looking for something tasty that is low cal and low fat, this isn’t it. A serving of three sausage links carries two hundred calories and eighteen grams of fat. On the brighter side, this same serving size offers one gram of dietary fiber, two percent of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin A, four percent of Calcium, four percent of Iron and eight grams of Protein. By eating light for breakfast the rest of the week, I can justify enjoying Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links once in a while for a tasty, hearty breakfast. A point that should be noted is that a serving of three Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links contains four hundred and ninety milligrams of Sodium. This product would not be a good choice for those who have been advised to follow a low sodium diet.
Besides the extravagance in calories, fat and also sodium, are there any other downsides to the Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links. My husband claims that although they are extremely tasty, they are a bit too greasy for his palate. I would have to agree on that point. The sausage links are a bit on the greasy side. I have never tasted a sausage link that wasn’t a bit on the greasy side, however, unless it was all dried out. I would much rather a little extra grease than a sausage link that is dried out and flavorless.
All points considered, I would rate the Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links four out of five stars for taste, price and ease in preparation. I will subtract one star for the nutritional value. I plan on enjoying Banquet Brown ‘N Serve Sausage Links for a long time to come, just not every day.
