An autumn banger with a toffee apple twist, that’s what we have here with HECK Guy Porks. The name alone fantastic, and the packaging is apt. They were so popular last year that HECK have brought them back again this year, and they kindly gifted me some to try.
Using lean British pork, diced apple and a hint of black treacle, they too are also gluten and dairy-free. This newbie is now available exclusively in Sainsbury’s and their online web shop for this month only, and cost £3.00 a pack.
Initially the plan was to have them with mash and gravy (winning combo) but a lack of potato threw that out the window. So instead I opted for the next best thing, a sausage sarnie. I cooked these for around 25 minutes in the oven and when they came out they were sticky and slightly caramelised on the outside.
The skins aren’t chewy which can often be the case. Taste wise they were porky but the apple and sweetness from the treacle really came through. Whilst cooking the treacle has almost become like dark caramel meaning the sweetness is a little like toffee. What I like is that these still capture the meatiness you want from a sausage.
Of the variations these HECK Guy Porks are delicious and my new favourite. I wasn’t sure how they would fair but the combination of flavours works really well.
Have you tried these yet? If you are after a Vegan Sausage then see my review of HECK’s here.
