5 Health Benefits Of Square Sausage
The strangest Scots food
My pal Tam D Matheson wrote this ‘Ode to Scottish Lorne Sausage’
It made me laugh, not to mention a wee bit hungry.
Take it away Tam…
Mid morning hunger just hit...
Something sumptuous is sizzling in my pan…
Or as I prefer it,
Today I’m struck by its many health benefits.
Decent Lorne is just that… beefy Scottish beef from beefy bulls.
How’s that a health benefit?
Easy… it is beefy protein which packs a punch for your muscles. My lad swears by it. And judging by the size of weights he lifts at the gym, who am I to argue.
2) Second health benefit is NO OIL.
You should be able to fry any decent Lorne sausage in it’s own beef fat… (normally gallons flood the pan to do that so no need for oil :).
Like I said, you don’t use oil… we all know less oil is good for our archeries according to the health boffs.
3) You save money.
Use the beef dripping from the pan on sandwiches and you save money instead of spending it on unhealthy fillings like jam, or chocolate spread.
Invest that money on gym membership instead. Super healthy.
4) My wife and her pals are ‘wild swimmers’. Oor lochs and rivers are perfect for this fabulous exercise.
She even got me into it. It's incredible fun btw... euphoric, (even for a shy pen pusher like me :)
Thing is though …
It’s a bit cold in winter.
What’s the answer?
Square sausage of course.
It’s a fantastic treat when you crawl out a loch frozen to the bone.
To be sure you keep up your outdoor swimming regime all winter... smear the cold beef fat from the pan all over you before you dive in.
Who needs a wetsuit!
5) Finally of course square sausages make you more beautiful.
Give loads of them to your love rivals…
After a few months of eating them day and night, they’ll end up looking (scarily) like a fat square Lorne. You in turn will seem super attractive ;)
Moderation is key in all things of course.
So, go head... enjoy your Steak Lorne.
The health benefits are plain to see.
Mines ready now... in a fresh morning roll, loads of butter… with an egg and brown sauce.
