Epic Schüblig

Swiss Pork Sausage with Cheese and Bacon

Today, i finally found the time to do a little recipe blogpost as i announced in the “about” section a while now.

I admit, it’s a bit of a cheap one, since i did not intentially cook this meal specifically for this blog, but i guess you have to start at some point, so here goes, the “Epic Schüblig”.

For those whom “Schüblig” sounds more like a weird IKEA Item or a Black Metal Band (also see “IKEA or Death“) – it is neither, but actually a swiss speciality brand of sausage which i find to be very tasty. It’s mainly made of pork and reminiscent of “Cervelat”, it’s more commonly known swiss speciality sausage brother. I also just found out that it even has an english Wikipedia page that i find quite amusing because of the mentioned figure of speech that was previously unknown to me.

But alas, i digress, so back to topic, back to the epic recipe!

You need:

  • 1 quality Schüblig (preferrably Olma grade)
  • 4-5 strips of bacon
  • 1-2 pieces of Raclette cheese (any other cheese will do just fine, it’s just that raclette comes in nicely cut pieces)
  • Butter or Oil to fry (optional)

The preparation is pretty easy.

  1. Cut the Schüblig in half lengthwise.
  2. Put the raclette cheese in between the two halves.
  3. Seal everything up nicely with some strips of bacon.
  4. Put into a frying pan on medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the cheese has started to melt and smells all nice and tasty.
  5. Turn around a few times during the process, so that the bacon gets nice and crispy but doesn’t totally burn.

Voilà, a simple but effective meal.

While it may seem very unhealthy at first sight, to eat such a fatty meal, in my case it is not as it is a perfect example for a carb-free diet – it is also called LCHF (low carb/hi fat) and is pretty big in Sweden. If you don’t believe me, read all about the science of LCHF on this blog – Science – it works, bitches.

Enjoy your meal!
