Square sausage

Lorne sausage, also known as Sliced sausage, flat sausage, square sausage, slice, Scots sausage or Scottish sausage, it can also be referred to as slab (as opposed to link), is a food most often eaten in Scotland. Sausage meat – which may be pork or beef – is set into a square and sliced into pieces generally about 3 inches (76 mm) square by about 12 in (13 mm) thick. The sausage is rarely a perfect square given the minced state of the meat, which is often bound with other ingredients such as rusk. Unlike other forms of traditional sausage, sliced sausage is not encased in anything and needs to be tightly packed into a mould to hold it together.

Square sausage remains a favourite in Scottish cooked breakfasts and is often eaten in the Scottish variant of the full breakfast or a breakfast roll. The square sliced sausage is also the ideal size to make a sandwich using one or two slices from a Scottish plain loaf.


Lorne sausage is often said to be named after Tommy Lorne, a Scottish music hall comedian of the 1920s.[1] This unlikely rumour was possibly started by Lorne himself.[2] Lorne is an area of Scotland.
