Square sausage ice cream to tingle taste buds

It will be on sale for one day only to celebrate National Ice Cream Day.

A new dessert is sure to tingle the taste buds of fans of traditional Scottish breakfast fare – square sausage ice cream.

Dairy firm Glen Urr has joined forces with Apex Hotels to reinvent the breakfast favourite, which will be on sale to celebrate National Ice Cream Day on Sunday at the chain’s Grassmarket hotel in Edinburgh.

The square sausage ice cream is served inside a brioche bun with toffee drizzle, giving the impression it is covered in brown sauce.

Chef Vladimirs Kruus said: “I have to say I’ve never worked with such an unusual ice cream.”

He added: “We decided to serve it on a brioche buns as the bread is slightly sweet, and this will be toasted and dusted with icing sugar.

“We have also whipped up a toffee drizzle that’s similar in colour to brown sauce, so it really is a sweet equivalent of a classic roll and square sausage.

“There’s no mistaking the distinctive taste of Lorne sausage, so this is definitely one for the adventurous.”

The star ingredient of Lorne sausage was sourced from Grierson Brothers Butchers in Castle Douglas before being cooked up, grated and added to the mix.
