    I'm on a red day and have decided on quorn sausages for either lunch or dinner but I am lacking inspiration. What can I have with them? I usually have ratatouille and cheese but I fancy something different. Please could you throw some ideas my way? THANK YOU! :D x

    or have them with a jacket potato, egg & tomato if you have a hex b left :)

    Or a cooked breakfast omlette?

    Or with SW wedges (hex A) and egg

    Or with roasted veg

    Hello! I usually use quorn sausages to "add to things". You could slice them thinly and add them to an omlette style frittata. I like to chop them up and put them in a homemade red pepper soup. Bulks it out as soup doesnt really fill me up.

    You could also add them to a "brunch" style meal. Quorn sausages, scrambled egg, mushroom and some fried potato (use your 198g of new pots, sliced thinly, from your HEXb).

    ALSO...... use Schwartz Classic Casserole mix (5.5 syns for the whole pack I think?!?) to make a sausage casserole!!

    Hope this helps!!

    I made a sausage hot pot the other day, I used eat smart sausages, but you can use quorn sausages just the same. Boil all the veg you want (I used cabbage, potato, carrots, cauliflour, and broccoli) pre-cook the sausages and slice them up and bung them in as well. add some stock to the water and a bouquet garni sachet and leave to simmer for an hour or two. Once it's reduced and thickened, serve and enjoy! (If you want it creamier, add a couple tablespoons of quark.)

    Quorn Sausages are alot better now as they have an new improved receipe. They have a nice "herby" taste to them, even my OH likes them and he is usually "anti quorn".

    I'm not actually mad on the quorn sausages. I prefer quorn bangers.

    ^ the quorn sausages are a bit too herby for my liking.

    There are 2 things i like so far, meatballs - they taste like the tinned ones i use to have as a kid and the mince - you dont really tell the difference between this and normal mince, especially once its in a lasagne or bolonese xx

    I find all the quorn things inedible, but the sausages are the worst.

    Is there anything else you like for red days?
