Cheshire Farm Review*

I love anything that makes cooking just a little bit easier as I'm sure most people do, so Cheshire Farm have brought out some great products you can just put in the oven for those nights where you just don't want to go to much effort but still want something tasty.
Cheshire Farm are passionate about growing only quality potatoes for everyone and they sell a range of products, all additive and gluten free. I was sent the Spicy Potato Bites, Hand Cut Chips, Roast Potatoes, Sliced Potatoes and Seasoned Potato Wedges. I just love potatoes and really what's a meal without them? I was so excited to try these and add something different to my meals. We had most of them in the first week as I just wanted to see what they were like!

The first ones we tried were the potato wedges. We had these with chilli and rice and they added to the meal perfectly! The first thing I noticed about these was that they actually smell a bit like McCoy crisps, and I love those! These are seasoned with Anglesey Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper and they only took around 25 minutes to cook, they went so well with the chilli.
The next night we tried the Spicy Potato Bites and I have to say I think these are my favourite out of all of them. I had made a Slimming World friendly version of KFC chicken which is quite plain so because these were quite hot and spicy it went really well and mixed things up a bit. These only took around 25 minutes in the oven too and they went lovely and crispy on the outside.
Next we tried the Hand Cut Chips. I made a lasagne and we had them with that. I left these in the oven for 20 minutes and they tasted really similar to the wedges. The first thing I noticed when I opened the pack was how much they look like chip shop chips! Of course they are quite unhealthy so these are a great alternative! I imagine these would be great with salt and vinegar in a slice of bread! They went well with the lasagne and it was a nice change to what we usually have. As I follow Slimming World it was nice not to have to make my own chips, these are quite low syn and are only 4.5 syns for half a pack which is great on a night you don't want to mess about with cooking.
The last two we tried were the Sliced Potatoes and the Roast Potatoes. We had the Sliced Potatoes with spicy chicken, rice and pitta. These are seasoned with rosemary and garlic but I have to admit I couldn't taste it very much and to me they did seem quite plain. They were probably my least favourite out of all of them but that's not to say they are bad at all, I just preferred the others over them. I probably would try them again in the future with a different meal. We had the Roast Potatoes last night as I thought they were perfect to go with a Sunday roast. I love a meal that is just warm and comforting and Roast Potatoes are honestly one of my faves. I make them quite a lot but these were great to just put in the oven and it was one less job to think about. They tasted really good and only took half an hour to cook. I think these would be great to add to a roast over the next few months while it's really cold, and even with christmas coming up, these would be perfect for that.
I would definitely recommend trying some products from Cheshire Farm if you haven't before, especially the spicy potato bites, they were just amazing! All of these can be cooked from frozen so if you need to save some space in your fridge, keep them in your freezer to add to a meal one night. They all take under half an hour to cook apart from the roast potatoes which take 30 - 35 minutes but they are worth the wait. You can buy all of these from the shop section on their website and all individual packs are priced at £2.50. You can also get boxes of 5, 10 and 15 if you really love them!

Check out their website here and let me know if you've tried anything from Cheshire Farm before!

*Thank you to Cheshire Farm for all of these fab products. I was sent these to review but all opinions are my own, I only work with brands relevant to my blog.
