As most people know, Aldi has a pretty good collection of “heat-and-go” options in their freezer sections: different kinds of sausages, french toast sticks, and even full sandwiches. This tells you just how popular that kind of food is, since Aldi is a limited inventory store.
Depending on your Aldi, you have a few major choices of sausages, including links and patties. This reviewer tends to favor the patties, in large part because they seem to be a better value and they definitely last longer. Among the patties there are both the “normal” flavored patties and maple-flavored patties. Both are pretty good, although the maple-flavored are tasty enough that they deserve a review on their own … which is exactly how we ended up here.
The Breakfast Best Maple Flavored Pork Sausage patties, which are a Regular Buy, come in a durable resealable plastic packaging, although you’ll need a pair of scissors to cut off the seal at the top. That’s the limit of difficulties; everything else about these patties is easy.
Cooking them is a breeze: throw them on a skillet, heat them until they’re a little browned on each side, and you’re pretty much good to go. (The packaging also has microwave instructions, although I think they come out a little better over a stove if you can manage it.) Once cooked, they cut easily. The patties also go well with other things — a personal favorite is creating a breakfast sandwich using the maple flavored patties, eggs, and cheddar cheese on a toasted muffin, but they are a good asset to any breakfast plate.
You might wonder if that maple flavoring comes at a cost of lots of sugar. Surprisingly, no; each patty only has about 3 grams of sugar each. On the other hand, they also have a fair amount of saturated fat and cholesterol, so be sure to take a close look at the nutrition information if those are concerns to you.
If you like sausage patties, give these a try. Highly recommended.
