Lorne Sausage

Postby Fatman » Sat Sep 04, 2004 8:39 am

Recently I had visited the beautiful Highlands of Scotland, where I had for the first time the " Lorne Sausage".

Can anybody share the secrets in how to make this wonderful sausage?

No vinegar and no casings too.
It's actually more like a scottish version of a burger in that it is formed into patties (albeit square rather than round).

The one's I had , were made with oats as opposed to breadcrumbs.

I'm guessing , would you form it in a terrine and then slice as required ?

Oats sounds good.
A Scottish friend of mine swears by adding a "couple of fingers" of scotch whisky so there's probably a few variations.
The loaf tin or terrine mould is the easiest way.
If you put the tin of mixture into the freezer until almost frozen then turn it out and slice it it's a lot easier.

Two fingers is a large measure, probably a triple. A lot of Scottish men have thick fingers too. :D

Hi All

I made the Lorne sausage for the first time some weeks ago now, all those who tried them thought they were very good including an expert from north of the border. Personally I found them too sweet as I used a nutmeg recipe, but eh who am I to say if everyone else likes them.

It was an interesting way to make sausage , easy, clean and well, different.

What made the Scots think of that one, I don't know.

Regards

Lorne Square

Actually this is one of the FEW Traditional Scottish recipes that contain pork. Though there are now more modern recipes being served in trendy pubs and restaurants throughout Scotland in the time of The Auld Alliance (France and Scotland) most of the dishes were made with sheep, venison, beef, and occasionally chicken, these often accompanied by rich sauces.

kind regards

A Caledonian friend of mine here in Australia calls this 'sliced sausage'. Maybe he's been here too long as he adds garlic to his seasoning - Le Sliced Sausage perhaps?
