lahuman8: The sausage that Dunkin Donuts uses tastes like shiat.


Does your voice sound like shiat?

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 don't even eat red meat, but I can eat the hell out of some breakfast sausage. I don't even care that it's made from the grossest parts of the animal.

/no jokes, please

Bacon is farking tired. When Burger King, jack in the box, and Denny's have 'bacon menus', it's as played out as small brew over hopped beer and zombies.

Ya, it's tasty but so is a lot of shiat and I don't need it on everything.

dolphkhan: FTFA: "sausage just isn't bacon, which can be laid atop, wrapped around, and crumbled into just about any dish with good results"
Laid atop: Pretty much any sammich can be improved tastewise with the introduction of a sausage patty.
Wrapped around: Come on, encase something in sausage and deep fry it, it's gonna be better. Scotch Eggs.
Crumbled into: WTF, crumble sausage into anything, and it's better. Eggs, pasta, etc.
I won't say sausage is better than bacon, but it's damned versatile and tasty.


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.

Was talking to my brother in law over Thanks Giving and he wants to try a grilled chess sandwich stuffed with hash browns, an egg and bacon. It might work, or it might be an affront to god. Ill have to see if he did and how it turned out.

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.

That would probably work.  Grilled cheese & bacon go well, and eggs and cheese sandwiches are good.  Potatoes are tasty with all of the above.

Sausage-related post:  I went to Columbus, OH back in May for my brother's college graduation, and he took me to a German restaurant called Shmitt's Sausage Haus.  Their signature menu item is a bratwurst called the Bahama Mama, and it was farking amazing.  Probably the best brat I've ever had.  If you're ever in Columbus you have to try it.

Fast food sausage is always the lowest grade stuff. You can see chunks of lungs and intestine it and occasionally bite into a chunk of hoof.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Aren't they called Dunkin Restaurants now?  I could swear I heard that in a recent commercial.  Do they even sell donuts anymore?


Yes you idiot. I go to Dunkin at least once a day, and donuts are still the core of their business. Though they usually run out of the good ones around 2 in the afternoon. Luckily there's a Krispy Kreme down the road.

Hmm I guess this is the perfect thread for me to mention my Xmas dinner idea. I bought a ham decent size and will be removing the bone and stuffing it with sausage then wrapping the whole thing in bacon. Yep came up with that one after I weaved bacon blanket for my turkey for Thanksgiving.

The only way sausage becomes the new bacon is if pigs become extinct. And then that would eliminate about 80% of all types of sausage.

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".

Bacon grease or bacon 'drippings' is the way to go for the maple bacon pecan goodness.

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!

Ketchup is optional (as a lot of other stuff you can put it, like mushrooms or chorizo), but the bacon-wrapped hotdog is not. Also, what's the hate on ketchup?.

Aw yeah.  I can vouch for that.  Schmidt's (as it is called) is in the heart of German Village, and is a must-visit if you find yourself in Cowtown.

I'm all for sausage, unless is frickin' chorizo. I don't know if it's just here in Australia, but you can barely buy a meal around here these days without chorizo figuring in. Give me a good old pork or beef emulsified fat tube any day, but you can jam your chorizo where it fits best.

ok...i know this is a sausage vs bacon thread, and not a hotdog thread. those hotdog threads with the battles of ketchup vs mustard, etc, can get as bad as tipping threads!

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!

NateAsbestos: Good sausage is better than any bacon, this is objective fact.


Agreed.

I like bacon but I never got the obsession.  Sausage is more varied and just as versatile and if I have a choice I'll always have sausage with breakfast over bacon.

\ considering using the waffle maker I got for Christmas to make sausage waffles tomorrow
\\  mmmm......sausage waffles...
