Square sausage

Recommended Posts

Marvin

Got a story on my news feed to my phone that Aldi are claiming to have invented the Square sausage. Can't be true because I've been eating them for over 40 years. Aldi have barely been around 40 minutes. :wacko:

Aldi haven't claimed to have invented it at all.

 

They're just selling it south of the border. 

They've called it "Sausedge".

It's made of pork.

 

Lorne Sausage is made of beef or beef and pork.

I'm sure I saw they are also claimed to invent Irn Bru.  It's all part of some clever marketing ploy which is clearly working as we are talking about it on kickback!!!

Lorne sausage is for posh folk. 

 

Square sausage is correct.

My local butcher (in Dunbar) does amazing square sausage, nice and thick with the added deliciousness of a haggis eye. 60p a slice or something. Drooling!!!

My mum just called it 'sausage meat', which I probably did too before moving to Edinburgh. I now call it 'sliced', so that was picked up here.

 

In Still Game, Winston cooked some 'flat sausage'. Anyone heard it called that elsewhere?

I used to think that, but you can get some pretty decent lorne sausage. Quite partial to the stuff on the odd occasion now.

Growing up it was always called sliced sausage, my dad is from Gorgie and my mum is from Stenhouse. Never heard the term square sausage until we moved to Gala. Always knew the term Loren sausage but never use it, generally square nowadays.

My stepdad always called it slicing but he's a fifer so we paid that the respect it deserved and called it square.

 

What is Lorne by the way? Is it a place?

Lorne's a wee town in Argyll.

Feck knows if that was where the sosij came from

That's sliced sausage.

 

If it's square or rectangular, it's square sausage.

 

If it's being discussed by some arsehole in Morningside, it's lorne sausage.

 

And that's the lesson for today.

ALDI also reckon they’ve found a link between pork and beef sausages.

Butchers in the Mill Centre (Steins) in Blackburn do it with either black pudding or haggis through it. Never tried any of the 2 as I'm only ever in to buy stew pies

He probably means Peter Whitecross butchers on the High Street in Dunbar, certainly they did it when I lived in Dunbar.

Lorne is more like a denser burger than a sausage.

 

Still good on a roll with a fried egg though.

Was down there during the summer as took my children on a caravan holiday like I used to do when I was young. Went to Coldingham bay and St Abbs harbour and all the memories came flooding back.

 

Beautiful part of the world

Square sausage, haggis roond, broon sauce (daddies) and a proper well fired roll. I don't miss Scotland much but I always look forward to a roll like that when I'm heading up.

The butcher in Coldingham does it aswell. Granted not as good as Peters but its not a 30 odd mile round trip for it. ( morrisons and lidl in Berwick do them also)
