Re: English Breakfast

I bought some in Aligro the other week. They're pretty close.
You need a personal card to shop there, I was told it's easy to get.

Re: English Breakfast

Our local Migros sells chipolatas - otherwise I stick a Pro Montagna bratwurst from Coop on our gas grill on the balcony - let the neighbours get the smell - while I fry the bacon and mushrooms inside.

Yep, I think chipolatas was what I bought at Aligro. They were small and tasty and I made bangers and mash that night and - after all these years at least - it tasted like the real thing.

Re: English Breakfast

My fav supermarket sausages are from Migros.. The one below.. Personally i don't like the smooth type sausage which is most common here.

But most butchers do them and do them without most of the additives. But cost 3 or 4 times as much..

There's also meatpoint .ch .. The guy posts on here, his stuff is really good but quality price too.. Guess it's down to price vs quality vs taste
