I have become a lover of Trader Joe’s and with that I allow myself to be adventurous and try new things. I primarily stick to the things that are Weight Watcher’s Point friendly for me. There are some things I’d like to try but I’m just not into the nutritional information enough to splurge. Every time I shop at Trader Joe’s I find myself bringing home 2-3 (or more…) new things that haven’t tried before to test out.
During my last shopping trip these Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages were on my list. I ended up putting them in the freezer because I wasn’t sure when I wanted to make them – that was until this week when I decided I wanted breakfast for dinner.
These chicken sausages have a really low point value (3 ppv) for a sausage and they are a pretty decent size. I’ve had pork apple sausages before and I really enjoyed them – but would never repurchase now that I follow WW because I would seriously cringe at the points. I find with my weight loss journey there are some things that are worth the splurge, while others just aren’t worth it for me. So for the things that aren’t worth it – I find substitutes and I am happy to say this is an excellent substitute!
The sausages are definitely a sweet apple flavor – so I’d suggest pairing them up with breakfast items (eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc.) or if you’re adventurous pair them up with a dinner item. They are precooked so they only have to brown up until the internal temperature is over 150F. I did find since these are sweet, the natural sugars in them come out while cooking so they want to “burn” in the pan – but it’s really the sugars crystallizing. I ended up adding some water into the pan to keep my kitchen from potentially getting smoky.
Overall – 2 thumbs up. Even my picky eater boyfriend really enjoyed these!
Have you tried any of the sausages at Trader Joe’s?
