Trader Joe's Irish Bangers

From what I understood from our local store manager
is that this a seasonal item...only available during St. Patrick's Day

My Sister-In-Law who was brought up in a German household,
taught me that to pan fry sausages I should use a covered pan,
add about 1-2 tablespoons of water and about the same of a
neutral oil, place the sausages in the pan, cover them and
gently cook them on a low heat.
Once the water has all evaporated, uncover and brown the sausages.

I have been tempted to buy the refrigerated pizza dough. I do like the sprouted tofu that they carry.

Kgirl, I've bought those Bangers and they're quite good. I cook them the same way.


James, it's no secret I'm a huge fan of TJ's, but their refrigerated pizza dough doesn't do it for me. I much prefer the dough from our local supermarket. However, TJ's jarred pizza sauce is on the mark with flavor.

I filled half of the tray of Croissants with Ham, Cheese,
Scrambled Eggs with Chives and the other half
simply plain …
Very good!
You can find these in the freezer case btw.

They look great. Have you filled them before baking?

How many Croissants in package? Price?

TIA

MsM, there are 8 minis to a package of frozen Croissants for $3.99
Once they were baked off,
I split them and filled them

Thank you for the info. I was thinking of laying ham & cheese on before rolling.

Not much from TJ's because it is a 268 mile round trip to visit the nearest store. However, their Dijon Mustard, imported from Fraaaaance, is a must have. I visit there once or twice each year.

Uncured Ham & Swiss Cheese Flaky Croissant Dough Squares
DH LOVED this!
Me, well, they were okay, but I truly
do not care for Swiss Cheese

You can find these cuties in the freezer case at your favorite TJ's

You could probably pick the Swiss off and put it on DH's pieces. Then put your favorite cheese on top of your pieces. Winning!

Went to Trader Joe's and picked up a couple of these. They are fantastic!

They are seasonal and only have them for a very short time. Which is silly because you would think hot cocoa would be a winter thing. But they only have them for a couple of weeks in early fall. They will be gone by mid October maybe sooner.

They also had Pumpkin spice Kringle. We don't really care for the Kringle.

I thought they were like pot stickers …

PF, I had never heard of these dumplings before … I was thinkin' the same, that they were either Tortellini or Pot Stickers … but this what I found when Googled

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pelmeni

They are delicious!!!
I tried them the first time in some Red Sauce aka Marinara … NOPE! That really didn't work, for me anyways.
I truly loved them in the homemade Chicken Broth!

I'll have to pick up some of those Kgirl. I also like TJ's pot stickers cooked in chicken broth with some Asian vegetables.

I'm glad you brought this thread back to life Kgirl.

I've been wanting to sing the praises of their new YUZU hot sauce... It’s the spicy, citrusy, kicky, tart, acidic, vinegary wonder ingredient that truly has bowled me over. I'm crazy about this stuff!!
Read about what to do with it here...
