Honest sausages

Squasage sandwich -resized-300dpiThe Keebles from Thirsk have launched a square sausage as part of their new Heck sausage range which arrived on Tesco shelves in April. The couple have developed the ‘squasage’ after a string of customer requests for a sausage with more staying power that wouldn’t fall through the barbecue grills or roll off the bread when making a sausage sandwich.

The skinless sausage contains high welfare British pork, gluten-free breadcrumbs, herbs and seasoning, and is inspired by the Lorne sausage, a favourite part of a cooked breakfast in Scotland but not seen much south of the border.

Heck’s Fair & Square sausages, £2.99 for 400g, are made from a small production unit close to the family farm in Thirsk, North Yorkshire. They will be available via mail order from June. www.heckfood.co.uk

These sausages are low carb, if not entirely fat-free, just remember to count your bun when it comes to calculating your insulin dose and avoid any really sticky condiments, like onion marmalade or too much honey glaze on things like BBQ chicken.
