- Monterey Jack & Jalapeno
sell a wide range of flavoured
sausage, so when the butchery
assistant indicated that there were
some loose sausages that were not
available packaged, put me down for
some then please...
on our friends web site over at
in the USA
about the combination of Monterey
Jack cheese and chilli, so I thought
it would be worth trying the
Sainsbury's were up to the challenge
we would see.
76% pork, 9% Monterey Jack cheese,
green jalapeno chilli, with added
Santa Cruz chilli, smoked paprika,
garlic and cayenne pepper
listed, this should be good!
Well the aroma from the pan when
they were cooking was the business I
have to say. Pungent and
spicy. Mind you one of the
sausages did spout a stream of hot
liquid cheese right out of the pan
on to the work top some 30cms away.
I don't think Sainsbury's need to
issue a Health & Safety Warning (ha
ha!) on this but be wary and very
careful if you try pan frying these
yourself. Certainly spiking
one straight from the pan to munch
on may be ill advised!
The level of chilli-ness is big, so
if you're not really a chilli fan
you may want to choose something
else perhaps. The cheese
flavour with the chilli though is
very good, and the succulence of the
sausage, yes top draw.
Now we did have a problem with
residue in the pan that burnt badly
and stuck all over the sausages.
This is going to be the molten
cheese / fat oozing through the
skins without doubt. A pity
really as when they were first in
the pan, everything was hunkydory.
A good tasting sausage though, yes
we all agreed, but the slightly
burnt cheese flavour did take the
edge off unfortunately.
