Sausage has the benefit of more flavor options. I'd say it would be a draw except that bacon does wonders for sandwiches where sausage can't tread.

I can believe this. Bacon is a particular cut of pork while sausage is made from any old pork, the cheaper scraps the better.

If somebody had succeeded in turning pigs into milk animals old worn out milk sows would be a major component of sausage just as aged milk cows become cheap hamburger.

It tastes like freezer sausage patties. Neither good nor bad, a little fat for texture and some spice to make it more sausage like. Not dissing freezer patties or frozen breakfast sandwiches (I eat them all the time), just saying might as well have a freezer one for .80 cents vs 2.50 or whatever DD charges per sandwich.

Thats the other thing, bacon is a lot harder to screw up. I have had instances where I didn't like a certain kind of sausage. I dont think I recall ever hating a piece of bacon...not real bacon.

Segway, but I say real because I think some places use a more fatty pieces and use color/taste additives, no proof, but try a piece of bacon from any of wendys burgers...there is something unnatural about the taste, like liquid smoke (or liquid bacon) was used.

Yup, Wisconsin has some of the best sausage and brats easily. Some of the local butcher shops that hunters sometimes bring their venison to to get processed keep some of the meat as payment and will make some excellent venison summer sausage, venison peperoni, and even venison (ok yes, mixed with pork) breakfast sausage. Great stuff.

Sausage bits on a salad doesn't sound appetizing. Nor does sausage on potato skins, or in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Sausage also doesn't taste so good crunchy.  I don't like chewy bacon, where you can bite into the fat.  Sausage has that issue of biting into bits of fat.

While I hadn't thought of doing it grilled cheese style, I've done something quite similar a few times. Sometimes it's scrambled eggs with bacon and cheese and hashbrowns on toast or bread. Other times it's a ham cheese and onion omelette on toast or bread with hashbrowns and bacon. Sometimes, if I'm feeling real ambitious or feel the need to harden my arteries a bit I've done fried eggs on texas toast with bacon, cheese and hashbrowns and smother the whole thing with sausage gravy. You can substitute the bacon for a burger or put both in there as well.

Nope.  Fluck that.  They want sausage to be the next bacon.  Because they can shove so much more copious flesh into the sausage grinder and have it still come out sausage.  Sausage has it's place.  But it's place is not along side bacon.  They want to add the extra flesh weight of eyeballs and brains in there.  It will still look like sausage, and with the right spices, come out tasting practically exactly like sausage.  I enjoy some Jimmy Dean from time to time.  But no, sausage is soylent green for pork!  You can boycott this easily!  Order bacon!  Keep ordering bacon!  Give me the bacon and not that concoction containing 8.6% upper intestinal tract!

but...you're eating a floppy stick made of ground and mushed various animal parts + filler + spices/seasonings, encased in either an animal's digestive tract piece (for good oldfashioned high quality dogs) or some artificial encasement (most hotdogs you get at the supermarket). wtf difference does it make when it comes to toppings?!? put on it whatever makes your tastebuds happy! it's not like you're putting ketchup on a perfectly seared beef filet...it's a goddam hotdog!

or giant sausage patties cooked in the waffle iron, thereby having the shape/dimples of a waffle?
either way sounds good

Sausage is good, yes.

But it will never surpass the taste enhancing qualities of bacon. Nothing goes as well with sausages as bacon goes with so many things.

What kind of sausage are we talking about here? If it was something like a good chorizo or andouille, I could see it. But breakfast sausage? No way.

HeartBurnKid: JohnnyRebel88: IlGreven: crab66: JohnnyRebel88: Bacon has become a hipster bandwagon item.

I hate hipsters as much as the next guy. But these words have no meaning.

Just like bacon has no meaning now that it goes on everything.

Bacon ice cream, cupcakes, beer, an other such crap...  However that sausage wrapped in bacon looks awesome above.  It's just soooo cool to like bacon now, no matter what it's put on.  I don't get it.  Has Goya or Jones made a bacon flavored soda yet?

Hey.  I've made homemade bacon maple ice cream, and it was incredible.

However, I've also tried bacon soda, and it was... not.  General rule, stay away from beverages and anything with "artificial bacon flavor".


I shouldn't judge before trying it, but it sounds so disgusting that I am just turned off by the idea.  I was watching a cooking show where they made the cupcakes, and if there is one thing I enjoy it's the great sweetness of the icing. And always like breakfast sausage more than bacon.

What is the best bacon dish that isn't straight bacon?  I like whiskey straight out of the bottle, and bacon right off the pig.

but If sausage is the new bacon, how can there be bacon sausage?

Oldiron_79: nocturnal001: twistedmetal: I don't know what that exec is putting in his coffee, but sausage will never surpass bacon in awesome goodness.

Sausage has the benefit of more flavor options. I'd say it would be a draw except that bacon does wonders for sandwiches where sausage can't tread.

I think we can all agree that Pigs are the world's most amazing animal.

Pigs are magical, they can eat garbage like apple cores and potatoe peels and turn it into BACON, that is Alchemy on par with turning lead into gold.



and sausage, and the best kind of ribs, and pork shoulder, and porkrinds/chicharonnes!

wiseolddude: Jimmy Dean's sage sausage is very good.


I agree 100%. Very good with pancakes and syrup. (Real 100% maple syrup, none of that corn syrup crap.)

neofonz: Try making homemade bacon and sausage sometime.
It's not hard to do and the final result is FAR FAR superior to what you get in the store.

/ just finished making a batch of homemade bacon (20 lbs or so) for Christmas presents.


I've never done my own bacon, but I've been making my own sausage for years now.  I may try bacon someday, but I just don't think I could top Benton's.

Never had Benton's, but don't be too sure on "topping it"... I have yet to find a commercially made bacon that tops what I can make at home. Not to mention the last batch I made only cost about $3.00 a pound to make.

Bacon's way easier to make than sausage, but it takes more time to do it (takes about 10 days start to finish). This is why I tend to make it in larger batches, because it freezes well. Not to mention its easier to buy pork belly in larger amounts.

I love bacon. I despise breakfast sausage. What a load of nonsense.

Sausage may take off, but it's not going to be on the Dunkin Donuts menu.  It'll be artisan sausages at your local butcher shop.  And I'm ok with that.  I'm tired of having only having 3 sausage options at the store: bratwurst, polish, and breakfast.  There are better sausages out there and I'm prepared to cook and eat them.

Sounds like you need a better store.

On another note, these are heavenly.

I still think something like Pastrami should be the new Bacon.  For example, I would no consider drinking bacon-flavored beer, but if I were in Chicago, I'd at least try this:
