Banquet Brown 'N Serve Light Maple Sausage Links

Recently I was wandering through the supermarket aisles - as usual - when I came to Banquet Brown 'N Serve Sausages. I buy these occasionally, and since they were on sale, I decided to try the Light Maple Sausage Links.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 3 links (60 grams)
Calories: 130
Total Fat: 9 grams, 14%
Saturated Fat: 3 grams, 15%
Sodium: 450 mg, 19%

For once I didn't over-cook the sausage links, and they came out to be sooo tasty - slightly sweet, slightly salty, juicy, and all good ... way better than the Original, and WAY better nutrition facts also. Each serving of Banquet Brown 'N Serve Light Maple Sausage Links (3), provides 130 calories from 9 grams of total fat, 3 grams of which is saturated fat (14% and 15% of the daily value), 450 mg sodium (19% of the DV), 2 grams of sugars and 9 grams of protein. The Original provides 200 calories plus 28% and 30% of the DV for total and saturated fat.

Banquet Turkey Sausage LinksThere are days when I enjoy cooking a full blown breakfast complete with toast, scrambled eggs and sausage. I was in one of those moods when I spotted Banquet Brown 'N Serve Turkey Sausage Links with a very reasonable price tag of $0.79 per box of 10. Do you know the old saying, you get what you pay for?! Well, this product is the embodiment of that term.

The first thing that I noticed when I opened the box was the diminutive size of the links. Each link is only about 2 inches long. I decided to brown the sausage in a skillet rather than microwave it, and I must say, it did brown pretty well. Unfortunately, the taste and the texture left much to be desired. It appears as if the good folks at Banquet/ Con Agra simply formed their bulk sausage into links, rather than stuff it in a proper casing. This made the texture is downright mealy. I was also expecting more spice - no taste of pepper, sage, fennel or anything else except salt, which is there in abundance. I also noticed that I could actually press grease out of these which surprised me, as poultry sausages are usually quite lean.
