Celebrate National Ice Cream Day with a Roll ‘n Square


How about celebrating National Ice Cream Day with a roll filled with square sausage?  Errr not my first choice, however, Apex Hotels have given a roll and sausage a summertime makeover.

Apex Hotels will be serving Square Sausage Ice Cream in a brioche bun and a drizzle of brown sauce.

Farmhouse dairy Glen Urr joined forces with Apex to bring the concept to life. The reinvented breakfast favourite will be served up at Apex Grassmarket in Edinburgh for one day only – National Ice Cream Day on 15th July.

Chef Vladimir Kruus said: “I have to say I’ve never worked with such an unusual ice cream. We decided to serve it on a brioche bun as the bread is slightly sweet, and this will be toasted and dusted with icing sugar.  We have also whipped up a toffee drizzle that’s similar in colour to brown sauce, so it really is a sweet equivalent of a classic roll and square sausage.

“There’s no mistaking the distinctive taste of Lorne sausage so this is definitely one for the adventurous. If you want to try something distinctly different on National Ice Cream Day drop by Apex Grassmarket!”

If you want to try it out visit Apex Grassmarket this Sunday, July 15, where it will be served free of charge for one day only.  Only one batch of this special limited-edition ice cream has been produced so it will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, and when it’s gone it’s gone!
