The 4th of July is American Independence Day and also happens to be my mum’s birthday.
The family tribe went out for an awesome yum cha lunch (post to come) to celebrate and we really didn’t feel like a big dinner when that time of the day came around. I remembered I had some Quorn sausages in the freezer and thought that it was the ideal occasion to cook them up.
What better way to acknowledge American Independence Day than with American style hot dogs.
My frequent readers will remember I attended the Quorn launch earlier this year and thanks to Mark Communications I was given some product to play around with. Quorn is a meat free, soy free product range which is now available at your local supermarket.
The sausages remind me of hot dogs and they have the same texture. If you are a vegetarian I think these are a fantastic product, they are far better than any of the similar options on the market.
You cook them straight from the freezer and they take about 15 minutes in a frying pan. You do need to keep turning them to get a nice colour all round, otherwise you do risk burning them, bit like a normal hot dog actually.
I will be honest Junior and Mac are probably two of the biggest carnivores that you will meet…. they like their meat :) So they were very doubtful on this product I wanted them to try.
Both of them were really surprised at the texture and agreed that you really wouldn’t know it wasn’t meat.
How did we have our hot dogs? With onion, cheese, mustard, tomato ketchup and gherkin relish. Yum.
How do you like your hot dog?
