Pheasant & Pear Sausage Salad

I’ll be honest, I’m not a massive  fan of sausages – I prefer hot dogs. If I have to eat them (not that anyone has ever forced me), I think vegetarian options are tastier than pork BUT when I discovered that Wild and x makes sausages with pheasant meat, I had to give them a try. Wild and Game* specialises in British game meats, sausages and pies. They’re all stuffed with protein which is what you need for a healthy diet. Pheasant meat for example has less fat, lower cholesterol and more protein than chicken.

I have a couple of wild boar and venison steak in the freezer which I shall try another time but with the Pheasant & Pear sausages, I put together a healthy salad, perfect to bring to work for lunch. Normally I would use apples in salad but to bring out the pear taste in the sausages, I opted for conference pears instead and it works really well.

    That really is a great idea – mixing sausage up with salad! Pheasant is an acquired taste any game like that is, but I bet these are divine! I go through fits and starts with sausages, however am eating more now on Keto… do miss the ‘buttie’ part though! Sim x

      I love that they experiment and try different types of sausages. It is an acquired taste yes but these were delicious, especially in a salad.
