Last Saturday was a relaxing affair – a day off with no jobs to get done, so Mr B enjoyed a long lie-in while I went to the gym. It was definitely time for a late breakfast by the time I got back, and I had a little help from Premier Inn!
Created with the help of celeb chef Ed Baines (of Britain’s best dish), Premier Inn’s Purple Sauce is a contemporary addition to the traditional cooked breakfast, complementing your favourite sausages, bacon and eggs to perfection.
Premier Inn say the following about their sauce:
“A great alternative to red and brown sauce, our secret Purple Sauce recipe has a blackberry base with natural ingredients including crushed chillies, toasted cumin, smoked salt and cider vinegar. You won’t find any artificial colours, flavourings or additives in there and it’s suitable for vegetarians too.”
So, what did we think? We would both opt normally to top our breakfast rolls with a good portion of tomato sauce, but with Premier Inn’s purple sauce, we were divided on our opinion! We both thought it was a tad too runny for our liking, but I loved the barely-there hint of smokiness to which complemented the blackberry flavour base. Mr B was fairly ambivalent, saying that the flavours just weren’t distinct enough for him. I would choose it again (so I’m glad that I get to, having the rest of the bottle to enjoy!)
Premier Inn sent me a bottle of their limited edition Purple Sauce to try in exchange for a review blog post.
