These light and lean sausages will change your dinner times

Hot dogs, sausage sarnies, bangers and mash, the full English breakfast – the humble sausage is one of the tastiest foods in the Great British repertoire, but needless to say, they’ve never been a 'light and lean' option. Until now!  

Introducing the NEW Extra Special Light & Lean Pork Sausages – these tasty treats, which went into Asda stores on Monday 3 April, are 71 calories per sausage.

The average sausage is around the 130-150 calorie mark, so these brand new offerings are a welcome addition to the midweek shop.

Light & Lean sausages also contain: 

  • Less that 3% fat
  • High protein

Plus, for those catering for coeliacs, these sausages are also gluten-free!

They come in packs of six and are lightly seasoned with a pinch of cracked black pepper.

So with the Easter holiday well under way why not stock up to prepare your family a special breakfast, or head outside and host your first BBQ of the year!

Pick up a pack in store today and try them in any of these recipes for an easy midweek meal.
