Having made his debut at the weekend, Peter Crouch has now been extended the formal Burnley welcome of having a sausage named in his honours.
As of Monday, Heys Family Butchers, just across the road from Turf Moor, will be producing the ‘Red Hot Robot’ in tribute to Crouch and his signature goal celebration.
The elongated sausage, which we are told is ideal for hot dogs, consists of shoulder pork marinated with chillies, paprika, jalapeño peppers, tomato, garlic, onion and a dash of lemon juice.
We usually only do celebratory sausages for players or managers when they have achieved something at the club, but Crouchie coming to Burnley has really caught the imagination and doing a Mexican themed sausage is something we have not done before.
We are well aware Crouchie loves nachos so these will compliment them perfectly.
Sounds delicious. A fitting tribute to one of England’s most unorthodox strikers.
Heys already produce a special Burnley sausage pack which contains eight ‘Claret Clouter’ sausages, as well as other similarly on-theme meat products.
Pies’ favourite must be the Dyche Deluxe, which is a slightly misshapen slab of raw sausage meat that has had one end dipped in neon orange fish-finger crumbs.
