The first product to be reviewed is Applegate's organic Andouille. This spicy cajun sausage is made from organic chicken and turkey as well as organic herbs and spices. The sausages come fully cooked in a vacuum pack of four. The first thing I loved about Applegate's sausage was that I could actually read and understand the ingredients list. These organic products are free of the harmful nitrates and nitrites found in most processed meats.
As the Applegate website recommends, I sliced up the andouille sausage for my jambalaya rice casserole. The spicy sausage meshed perfectly with the cajun inspired dish. Since the sausage is pre-cooked, I just added it to casserole as it finished cooking.
I was pleasantly surprised with the taste of the sausage. The meat was very well seasoned. It also lacked that artificial processed flavor that many pre-cooked meat products have. It was so good, that I think I actually prefer it to the fresh sausage that I typically cook and add to my jambalaya. At just 140 calories each, they are certainly a healthier alternative. If you're health conscious and looking for a quick and tasty protein source for your family, pick up a pack of these sausages.
