Now that the weather has turned downright hot here in Georgia we are grilling almost nightly. It’s just too hot to turn the stove or oven on and to be honest, I love dining al fresco. Hubby could live on hot dogs and traditional pork sausages but the fat and calories certainly don’t make them the healthiest choice. He’s a huge chicken eater so when I heard about al fresco All Natural Chicken Sausage I thought they would be a healthy and delicious alternative for him. He tried another brand of chicken sausages years ago and they did not leave a favorable impression with him. So I didn’t let him know I was reviewing al fresco All Natural products until the day they arrived. Pretty crafty of me right? al fresco All Natural Chicken Sausages come in 13 versatile and yummy varieties, including:
- Chipotle Chorizo
- Buffalo Style
- Spinach & Feta
- Roasted Garlic
I was Blessed to receive four different varieties of al fresco All Natural Chicken Sausage for Hubby the Hubster to try.
I can’t say he was happy when he saw the words “Chicken Sausage” on his package of grillin’ product. He got a little snarky and he let me know in no uncertain terms that turkey and chicken sausage were not his favorite foods. (I’m paraphrasing because this is a family friendly blog!) I let him know that I had read through the al fresco All Natural Chicken Sausage website, knew exactly what was in their products and he would like these sausages!
al fresco is an easy way to bring gourmet flavor to almost any meal. The al fresco Sweet Italian Fully Cooked Chicken Sausage would be delish cut into chunks and baked in an Italian style ziti or sautéed with onions and peppers then piled on a hero and topped with mozzarella. al fresco chicken sausage is made with lean, skinless chicken meat and the finest herbs and spices! al fresco products don’t contain any artificial ingredients, they’re gluten-free and the best part of all, they contain 70% less fat then traditional pork sausage but still have a wonderful taste. Yes, Hubby loved them!
Hubby grudgingly grilled a package of Sweet Apple Fully Cooked Chicken Sausages the night the products arrived. This was the sausage I was the most concerned about. If he liked this one I knew the other ones would receive huge accolades! We sat down to eat and Hubby the Hubster scarfed down two sausages then told me they were delicious. Ha! He said he was really shocked and didn’t think he would like them and in fact they were really good and he would be buying them. As you can see from the picture they’re juicy, and every bit as moist and flavorful and their pork cousin. al fresco All Natural Chicken Sausages are a healthier, gluten-free, high protein, low carb option.
al fresco Smoked Andouille Chicken Sausage is a fully cooked, spicy sausage great for adding to gumbos and New Orleans style stews. It’s also tasty grilled or broiled! The last product I received and Hubby loved was Wild Blueberry fully cooked Breakfast Chicken Sausage. Most pork breakfast sausages are loaded with fat and calories. One rather large Wild Blueberry Breakfast Chicken Sausage link contains just three grams of fat and 7o calories. These hearty sausages contain real, wild blueberries, pure Vermont maple syrup, gourmet spices and vanilla extract. Like all al fresco products, these slightly sweet sausages are free of nitrates, nitrites, MSG and preservatives. Craving a hearty, but healthy weekend breakfast? Wild Blueberry Chicken Breakfast Sausage Pancake Rollups may be just what you’re lookin’ for! Enjoy!
