I’m a pretty adventurous person. There really are very very few things that I won’t try, and this especially goes for food. I eat things that a lot of people don’t like. I’m a mega seafood enthusiast, I mean I’ll eat anything that was once living in the water, and I’ll eat it cooked or raw, I don’t really care. Sushi is my number one favorite food. When I was 10, I would go to restaurants with my Grandpa and we’d both order the same thing: liver and onions. My point is that I’m always open to try new foods and experiment with recipes from different cultures that we might not consider eating here in the states.
I want to start a new series on my blog here called WTF (what the food). This week seemed like the perfect time to start this since I just found this new item when I was grocery shopping, and also because it’s fall and this WTF post seems fitting given my obvious #WhiteGirlStatus.
That’s right, folks, pumpkin spice chicken sausage. I don’t know about you, but when I think of pumpkin spice I think of dessert, and the idea of putting sausage in a pumpkin pie seems just plain nasty. So for me this means I had to try it.
I browned them in a skillet, like I would any other sausage. The nice thing about these was they had no casing, so the texture wasn’t weird or unpleasant.
I guess I’ll start by saying that these were a little underwhelming. The pumpkin spice flavor wasn’t strong, it was just subtle. All in all, it just tasted a lot like maple sausage. Would I eat it again? Sure, if someone made it and offered me some. Would I pay $6 to buy it again? Probably not. It wasn’t outstanding. It wasn’t like a food revelation. It was just sausage with a sweeter taste.
On the plus side, I got my kids to eat it with no issues. My one year old, Gabe, tends to eat everything no matter what it is, but my two year old, Nathan, is super picky about anything on his plate and it makes mealtime a nightmare. Nathan ate the sausage with no complaints.
