A better name for this post would probably be ‘The Best Sausages EVER’ because, they really really are the best sausages I’ve ever tasted!
Brown’s Gourmet Sausages are made on a farm near Wollaston in Northamptonshire and are sold at a few select markets and restaurants across the county. Luckily for us, Brown’s have a stall at Northampton market every Saturday so last weekend, Mr MAC and I decided to pay them a visit.
The first thing that will strike you about Brown’s is the selection of sausages they have on offer. There are so many interesting varieties of pork, beef, chicken and gluten free sausages that your mouth will water simply just looking at the market stall! Mr MAC and I took a long time to make our selection but finally selected the below:
Sage and Onion – Fresh British onion and sage. A classic combination.
Spanish and Chorizo –A marriage of garlic, red peppers and red wine.
Butternut Kiss – Butternut squash, creamed coconut, coriander and a little chilli.
Beef Ploughmans – Beef, cheddar cheese and caramelised red onion
The man on the stall was very patient with us and even gave us free tasters of the Anglo Indian sausage (An intense Indian sausage, garam masala, bay leaves, ginger and red chillies) which was truly scrumptious! We were also very lucky to receive a free Ploughman’s sausage and an Italian sausage – great customer service!!!
Some of the sausages we have put in the freezer to eat at a later date but, last night, we could wait any longer and decided to have a lazy Sunday night meal consisting of a sausage and caramelised onion sandwich. These sausages really made a regular, throw together, lazy meal something a bit special. I had the two ‘free’ sausages which were bursting with flavour, absolutely phenomenal. My better half thoroughly enjoyed his sage and onion sausages too. I love the way you can taste every ingredient in these sausages, something that Tesco really can compete with!
We will definitely be returning to Brown’s market stall without a doubt. For those of you that live in the UK and are interested in finding out more, check out the website here. You can even order on-line…..!
