Notable Nosh: Chicken Pineapple Rum Sausage

Chicken Pineapple Rum Sausage

I recently came across these rather curious sounding sausages and couldn’t pass them up. They are made by a company with the very singular name ‘Spolumbo’s’ and I don’t think I’ve yet seen a more interesting combination.

The sausages came three to a pack so I grilled them up and made two ‘hot dog’ type dealies and then sliced up the third so my wife and I could try it without any other flavors getting in the way. The sausage was actually pretty good but we both agreed that there was no hint of either rum or pineapple in the meat but that it was obviously chicken rather than the more common beef or pork. Curiously, the flavor reminded me very much of roast chicken with a mildly herbed stuffing.

I can’t say I was ‘wowed’ by the experience especially, but I would buy them again sometime as the ‘hot dogs’ I made were very nice. I grilled the inside surfaces of the buns and then brushed them with garlic infused olive oil, slathered on some hot English mustard and then topped off the whole with chopped pickled banana peppers mixed with parsley. It was a great combo…

      1. Ooopps… wrong. The package was discarded but the label wasn’t…. If you magnify the picture above, you can see that the label lists crushed pineapple and rum but doesn’t give quantities.

Comments, thoughts or suggestions most welcome...
