This is a fully cooked chicken sausage from Hormel. The term Natural Choice means it’s 100% natural with no preservatives and the ingredients list is pretty clean.
I warmed this sausage through and then browned them slightly before eating. When you look at this sausage, there is an amazing amount of spinach and you can also see a good number of white flecks underneath the casing surface. The grind is fine and the sausage has a nice texture with a pronounced spinach taste – which is pretty nice considering spinach is such a mild tasting vegetable. Unfortunately the asiago cheese, which happens to be one of my favorites, is nearly undetectable. Asiago is such a strong tasting cheese and it seems that just a small amount against the near flavorless chicken and the mild spinach would stand out. Unfortunately that’s not the case. At $4.99 for 12 oz, this is priced as a premium product and I would consider it to be just that (for chicken sausage) if all the flavors came through.
As it is, I thought it was over priced and I wouldn’t purchase this sausage again.
