aah! BISTO… the most annoyingly spelled brand name in culinary history. It’s famous for its gravy, which as you’d hope, is top notch here. It’s a shame then that everything else is distinctly underwhelming. The mash is disappointingly bland, and the peas were a bit hard. The sausages are weird and chewy, though have that… [Read More]
Delicious! Muffin is nicely chewy, holds up well after being in the microwave. Sausage patty is nicely fatty and the cheese comfortably covers the whole surface area. Easy prep – 65 seconds in the microwave, job done!
Tasty, good chunks of beef, nice crunch on the potatoes, polenta makes the gravy nice and thick. Generous portion for one. Only has an oven cook option, and definitely not healthy, but good comfort food. A slow-cook, indulgent treat.
I may be the only person in the world who had this with charred broccoli and ranch dressing. It was a winning combo though. I apologise for the particularly bad second picture, which may have been somewhat distorted by the beer or two I’d had beforehand. It tasted better than my photography would suggest. A… [Read More]
Sausages are bland, bready and tasteless. The batter is a bit crunchy on top and doughy underneath. Disappointing.
I was so looking forward to this, when to my great disappointment I realised it does not come with microwave instructions. You have to oven bake it. Damn you, pesky wedges! Fine. I conceded to the packaging and followed the instructions like a schmuck: I removed the wedges and set them next to the chicken-in-plastic… [Read More]
This pasty is filled with BBQ flavour pork, which is delicious and succulent. Plenty of filling for my £1. Recommended oven bake, but microwave was ok – bit soggy.
Seriously impressive that this is under 300 calories. Portion size looks about the same as any microwave meal and it looks pretty tasty! The root vegetable mash is pretty good and the sausages have a nice processed texture to them, and the ingredients look good. But man alive, this gravy is watery and flavourless. Such… [Read More]
Potato doesn’t brown like the picture suggests. The bacon pieces are few and far between, and when you actually fork a piece, turn out to have a spammy taste. The potato is bland and uninteresting, given little flavour by the butter that smothers it. Filling, but not fabulous value for money. As already mentioned, bacon… [Read More]
At first sight, this looks promising, and looks as though it really could be the fish and chip shop experience from the comfort of one’s own home. In anticipation I sprinkled salt, added vinegar and squirted ketchup to accompany what was, I hope, going to be a nice meal. The mushy peas are pretty good,… [Read More]
