Linda's are all good.
that's why bacon & sausage sandwiches / pigs in blankets are best.
Can get a variety of flavours.
Good with other meat wrapped around them.
Great in a sandwich.
Provide a bit of innuendo due to looking like nobs.
Can get it nice and crispy.
Great in a sandwich and easier to handle.
Good wrapped around stuff or chopped up.
Very quick to cook.
slice a sausage lengthways in half and it'll give you no trouble
snugly into a bun
Not sure about bacon.
Cold sausage sandwiches are nice
if you cooked a blt at home, you've got to eat it slightly hot. it would be weird having proper bacon at home and it being cold
Cold sausage can go straight in a sandwich or just straight in your fat gob. So shuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut up.
Although if I only have bread and no rolls, bacon.
Regular sausages are rancid, unless they're 95%+ meat.
(agree re: lorne sausage though. Nom.)
(aka a clyde tunnel).
I'm going to practically live off this stuff at the weekend, as I don't like turkey and while we usually have goose, we have to have turkey this year because the other side of the family is coming and they INSIST on turkey. I could weep.)
I would choose bacon for a last meal, but take sausages to a desert island.
easier to mek, can chuck stuff in it, make your own, flavours. yes.
or do you make your own sausages? cos essentially you grill or fry them both..?
brings on the next question.. do you grill or fry?
and just mean you can like stick a chilli in the middle of a sausage.
you can't just use an icing bag for example
but bad sausages are the worst things ever.
people bang on about bacon sandwiches, but they aren't all that great really. Sausages work as a main part of a meal or a decent filling for a roll equally well.
however in a standalone battle sausage beats bacon
Sausages are the best though clearly:
- you can dip them in an egg
- they are an excuse for mustard
- they are nice in a lentil or bean based dish
- burglars can strap them to their fingers to avoid detection
Caramelised red onion, apple and all that shit. One exception: Toulouse.
Need to be cooked in the oven for about an hour for me to enjoy them too. Do love them though.
So to conclude: Bacon. Just.
I agree that some flavours are a bit much but you do get some nice ones now and again
but I prefer them like that
increases dryness and decreases flavour — all in the name of reducing fat, I presume.
It works, I guess, because I don't want to eat the sausages at all if they've been cooked in the oven.
sausages for a bbq lunch/dinner
you are so australian
it either gets to below zero just after lunch time, or rains 93% of the day/night.
I still would have to say bacon.
I feel better eating some bacon and eggs on toast or on pancakes with maple syrup and sausages are just weird on their own with eggs.
but I do like sausage casserole and chorizo sausages and sucuk sausages.
oh I dont know
chicken, pork sausages = no
but yes, I'll concede they're fine as a sausage (for someone else).
Chicken sausages just do not work, though. They come out dry, and given that they're completely flavourless too, you really have to wonder why you're putting up with the dryness.
are you mental? Pork is clearly the best, the others don't seem right at all
Sounds weird. Pork is fine.
actually, even if it just one variety of sausage v bacon, sausage would still win.
the rest is shit and bits. I won't go lower than 85%.
it's sometimes herbs, fruit or vegtables etc, and also fat and rusk/breadcrumbs etc are more than just bits added to sausages to fill them out. they are important for both texture and robustness of sausage as well as playing an important role in the cooking.
granted realy really porky sausages have their place, and 40% pork ones are full of cuts of very low quality meat, but you're limiting your sausagey enjoyment if you won't drop below 85%. No one should limit their sausagey enjoyment that much!
is versatile the word i want? maybe not. but i can only think of a few things that i'd add bacon too, whereas the sausage possibilties are endless. i fucking love sausages tho, and i'm not that keen on bacon.
bacon is versatile
burgers = wrapped around things
pizzas = fair enough
I guess bacon is a good flavouring tool for cooking but its not like you have many meals based around the rashers themselves. sausages on the other hand...
not if there was pepperoni (sausage) on the menu anyway.
i just dont want it
sausages and salad
sausage in a bun
you need to learn to speak sausage my friend
As in BBQ sausages with salads and bread.
but I'm 100% hetero.
I just realised that you're the same guy who had to have a conversation with himself upthread to establish that chicken sausages weren't a great idea, and who also said they don't even like pork.
What I'm therefore supposed to do with your bacon vs sausage opinions is I'm afraid beyond me.
over countless BBQs that chicken sausages are not a good idea.
It's a lesson I'll undoubtedly be forced to learn many times more to come.
I've never seen nor heard of a chicken sausage in my life.
I don't know whether it's a national thing or just a family thing but whenever there's a family bbq, they're always thrown into the mix as a non-beef option.
It's a terrible thing to do to a chicken.
i'm really confused.
mental amount of choices for sausage here. bacon goes with everything. pop it in your sugar puffs, best breakfast ever
End of discussion.
You can't do that with bacon.
mentioned toad in the hole yet... can you do that with bacon?
Although it is the SMELL of bacon that really makes it.
Sausages are often disappointing and need sauces or mustard to liven them up. Bacon is its own man.
