Would you eat your sausages with marmalade ?

Yesterday I heard of somebody eating a sausage covered with marmalade for breakfast. I had never heard of this before , but apparently it is quite a popular dish and a tasty way to serve sausages. Would you eat a sausage if it was covered in marmalade?

Not if the marmalade is added to a cooked sausage, I would if the sausage is basted while it cooks.

I think it would taste nicer if the sausage was basted in marmalade rather than just having it spread over cold.

@millie02 This is also my opinion, a bit of cold marmalade spread on them does not sound interesting.

@LadyDuck Perhaps the heat from the sausage might melt it a bit, like it does when you spread it on toast.

I don't put marmalade on sausages after they are cooked but I do sometimes baste them in a watered down mix of marmalade (or mango chutney) as they cook in the oven. The sweet/sharp caramelised fruity taste with the pork works well. I also sometimes bake a ham with a marmalade baste (after I have scored the fat and plugged the cloves in the intersections) and pork chops or loin steaks go very well with an orange sauce made with some strands of zest, a little orange juice added to some stock or gravy mix. I know that apple sauce is the usual accompaniment to roast pork, just as redcurrant jelly is traditional with lamb, orange with goose or duck, cranberry sauce with turkey or chicken and gooseberry sauce with mackerel. Actually, any of these tart fruit sauces go well with most meats, fish or fowl, especially when they are fatty or oily.

No real difference to turkey with cranberry sauce! Or pork with apple sauce! that being said I'm not a big fan of any form of fruit being paired with proper food.

Sweet and savory do go together well in some recipes.

I wouldn't, but I don't like marmalade! However, I have had all sorts of other unusual food combinations. I've been told that some of the combinations sound horrible but I remind people who say that there is always a first person to combine ingredients. I don't understand why you'd put cheese on chicken but that's quite popular!

@millie02 I like cheese on chips. Which is particularly odd, considering I don't really like chips and it's only recently that I've liked cheese!

I have never heard of it before. I have sausages with tomato ketchup and mayonnaise. I have not heard of this combination, sausage with marmalade.

I have never eaten any sausages with marmalade and I think I would rather not try to eat it not unless I can prove that it is tasty.

i guess it results in a salty and sweet taste? i wouldn't do it, though. i tend to use mayonnaise, ketchup, or cheese spread.

Ummm...if the sausage doesn't contain parts that are not meat, I will maybe eat some. I try to eat less meat. Do you know how sausage is being made ? I think you wouldn't wanna know. The marmalade can be tasty on bread, maybe on a piece of a baked chicken as a spice... The combination of sweet and salty can strengthen the tastes. It's like having some salt seeds inside a cookie with chocolate pieces.

Never tried that, but I do like fruity chutney and I also like the traditional meat and fruit combinations like pork with apple sauce, lamb with redcurrants etc, so maybe I should give it a try?
