The bacon sausage utilizes ground bacon ends to provide a delicious bacon flavored sausage. Great on the grill or in the fry pan. It has a unique flavor that provides an out of the box eating experience.
Keep Frozen or Refrigerated.
Erika of Babette's Table makes this sausage for Snug Valley Farm, our pork supplier in Hardwick, Vermont. Ben at Snug Valley raises his pigs outdoors on pasture supplemented with grain and whey. This makes for very flavorful and nicely textured meat.
This sausage has the distinct flavor of bacon and bacon fat. If you've ever cooked with bacon fat, you'll know that there's a distinct mouth feel and taste versus using, say, butter or olive oil. Bacon is cut from pork belly or parts close to it, so it has a richer flavor than leaner cuts of pork. This sausage, therefore, will have a deeper flavor. It won't have the variety of flavors as some of the other pork sausages here, but if you're looking for a sausage with some of the deeper flavor of bacon, this is really good.
I used slices of this sausage instead of regular bacon in my potato/bacon/leek soup and it was really good!
