    I am making a sausage and leek quiche for tea today (minus the pastry of course) with jackets and beans, and I just wondered would you rather have proper sausage in it and syn it or quorn for free. I haven't used any syns today so am leaning towards the proper sausage, (I am ill after all lol). I have both so its not a problem, I just fancy something lush and the sausage is doing it for me at the moment. I think I just need the taste and quorn is bland isn't it? I think a proper sausage is about 6 syns so I would be safe having 2.

    I would opt for a proper sausage Hun! Cant beat them! Quorn ones are ok, but Im a huge meat eater! Lol.
    If you can get hold of some in the future, try and get Morrisons very low fat pork sausages - they are free and not bad!

    i agree quorn saus can be an aquired taste although i like them.i made a cassoulet in the slowcooker 2 weeks ago using quorn saus and they were absolutely delishhhhhhhhh!i had been told they marinate well so thought i would try and was very pleasantly surprised.also i tried simmering them in just enough water to cover with an oxo mixed in for 10 mins.result-very good!!worth a try!

    slice sausage and chop leeks very fine, cook in a bit of chicken stock with seasoning to taste. Put in a dish making sure mixture is not too wet, squeeze out any excess moisture or eggs won't set properly, mix a couple of eggs with milk from allowance and pour over the sausage mix. Put in oven till egg mixture set. Eat hot or cold. Enjoy

    I make sausage casserole in the slow cooker. Eldest daughter is veggie so some quorn go in, and some meat for me and other daughter. And to be honest, you can't tell the difference wehen they ahve been cooking for 4 hours. They all taste lush! I know my veggie daughter has ended up withe the meat before now. BUt shush, don't tell her.
