Review - Al Fresco's All-Natural Chicken Sausage

Al Fresco Review
I love sausage of all kinds, but really haven't had chicken sausage a lot in the past. Just recently I had the chance to review Al Fresco's All Natural Chicken Sausage, we received Sweet Italian Style, Spinach & Feta and Sweet Apple fully-cooked chicken sausage to try. Al Fresco conveniently has some great recipes to try for their products.

We pan-fried the Sweet Italian Sausage and incorporated it into our simple spaghetti dish. I must say, the aroma of this sausage was delicious! We decided to heat up the last link in the microwave for two of our Siberian Huskies and our house smelled as if someone was baking a fresh pizza! Needless to say, the dogs ate it happily, lol. This was, by far, my favorite of the bunch. The wonderful chunks of red and green peppers are very visible and the sausage itself was great.

The Sweet Apple Sausage was a challenge. Al Freso's recipes were hard to choose from, but we went with the Cornbread Stuffing w/ Sweet Apple Sausage. We would've never came up with something as good as that on our own. The recipe was rather simple to make, we had everything on hand. In addition to it, we added a couple handfuls of raisins, which made it much more to our liking. It was refreshing, which was quite odd for a hot dish. We served this along side some grilled chicken, but was good all by itself. The sausage had a hint of sweetness, which makes me want to buy more and serve it for breakfast with some hash and eggs!

Last was the Spinach & Feta Sausage. I am not a fan of spinach or feta cheese, so this sausage I was not particularly fond of. We used it in a fettuccine dish, which was rather simple to make. I didn't like the taste of it grilled or with the fettuccine. I think it would be better off in a salad of some sort, but not my liking. I made this with a friend, and to my surprise, it was his favorite. Our tastes are quite different.

Al Fresco's many products include chicken meatballs, uncured chicken franks, deli turkey breast and fresh and cooked chicken sausages in wonderful varieties like Wild Blueberry, Chipotle Chorizo, Buffalo Style and many others. They are free of nitrites, nitrates, preservatives and artificial ingredients. A huge thanks to Al Fresco for the opportunity to review some of their great and delicious chicken sausages!
