Remember last summer when I bought 1/10th of an organic, grass fed cow? My family is definitely a family of meat eaters and I like to buy meat that has no additives, no antibiotics, and no MSG.
But I can't fit any more meat in my freezer!
Good thing Applegate Farms approached me to review their deli meats and breakfast sausages because not only do the fit the bill, but I can buy them in much smaller quantities.
Here is what we sampled:
Applegate Roasted Chicken Breast
All-Pork Sliced Pepperoni
Classic Pork Breakfast Sausage
Savory Turkey Breakfast Sausage
- No antibiotics
- No added nitrates or nitrites
- No MSG
- No artificial colors or flavors
Plus they are gluten-free and the sausages are ready-to-heat.
Here is what the family thought:
The deli meats are a nice size...not too thick and not too thin. They were less salty thatn other brands of lunchmeat, with great flavor and resealable packaging. I notices the deli meats are available at Trader Joe's too which is convenient and they are priced competitively. The chicken breast was wonderful in sandwiches and salads while the pepperoni was delicious wrapped around a slice of provolone cheese and also homemade pizza.
The breakfast sausages gave the Twofer the big smiles though. I never buy sausage so these were a real treat and delicious. Plus, I can feel good about serving them because Applegate uses humane farming practices and feed the animals a 100% vegetarian diet without antibiotics.
Applegate Farms believes the flavor starts on the farm and I have to say I believe it now too! Twofer Thumbs Up for Applegate deli meats and breakfast sausages.
