Or equally, anything to avoid?!

The classic burgers are lush. Also like the chicken-style pieces. The pepperoni-style things are a bit odd - I bought them to go on pizzas but they have a funny texture and taste. Not exactly horrible but a bit weird.

Quorn is often on 3 for 2 at sainsburys so I stock up smile

The Quorn fajita pieces are lovely. I just eat them on their own and they are great if you want to spice it up a bit! Also the Quorn ham slices and fake bacon slices are good. One of my favorites has to be the little cocktail sausages, especially for if you get the nibbles.

I never bother with the quorn readymeals or the cornish pasty/pie type things as they tend to be very low on actual quorn content and not very good value for money.

We love the quorn swedish meatballs - a few of those sauted with some mushrooms, then stirred with pasta and lloyd grossman tomato and chilli sauce is one of our all time favourite meals and can be ready in 10 minutes flat.

The steak strips are great in curry and fajitas.

I don't like the sausages that much, but they are nicer fried than they are grilled.

Chicken style pieces are amazing hot in a wrap with pepper etc or in a curry or in a Jambalaya.
Love any meat free burgers never buy the quorn ones.

All of it. Revolting stuff. I prefer real food.

The meatballs are great. Serve with pasta and tomato.sauce for a syn free meal.

The mince is ok for Shepherds Pie, lasagna etc.

Beware the sausages, they are 1 syn each I think.

I am veggie, so I don' t compare Quorn products to the meaty equivalent and I don' t mind it at all.

The chicken pieces are good for stir fries.

I like the escalopes but only the lemon and pepper ones (much less fat than the pesto or cheesy ones but harder to find!).

I make a sort of fajita filling with the chicken and a shepherds pie with the 'mince'.

The sausages make good 'sausage rolls' if you use bread dough for the pastry.

The chicken deli slices are nice as is the bacon (fried).

I also like soya - is that fatty? I'm veggie so I eat this lot for the protein.

The mince is great, the burgers are lovely, don't like the sausages at all - Linda McCartney all the way - the southern coated chicken style pieces are amazing!

Thanks grin think ill try one item a week on my shopping list. Quite fancy the deli slice style chicken and ham ones. Might be good for snacks and lunches.

I love the linda mccartney pies. Think they are highish in fat though.

Well I've tried the sausages and the roast chicken style deli slices and quite enjoyed both! I'm very pleased as I was struggling with snacks.
