Square sausage (lower right) served with black pudding, baked beans, fried bread and mushrooms
Square sausage, also known as Lorne sausage, sliced sausage or slice, is a food product most often eaten in Scotland and North East England. Sausage meat - which may be pork, beef, or a mixture of the two - is set into a square and sliced into pieces generally about 3 inches (76 mm) square by about 1?2 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.

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

[edit] Name
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 Tommy Lorne himself.[2]

[edit] Cooking
Square sausage should be either deep or shallow fried in oil or placed under a grill for around ten minutes.

As you suggest, "slice" can only be from "sliced". If you ever feel the urge for some brawn in this area of Scotland (and maybe others - I haven't sampled regional differences), ask for "potted heid".  It is sold in supermarkets, though I can't say as what, but most get it from the local butcher.  We ate a lot of it as children, but almost none as adults.  Janet doesn't like it (I do).

What a fund of esoteric knowledge BITlist is.
