Crouchie’s Red Hot (Sausage) Robot
Peter Crouch has returned to the Premier League, this time to play for Burnley. And the striker has been welcomed to his new team in a special way. A local butcher in town “Heys Family Butchers” has decided to name a sausage after their new hero: the Crouchies’ Red Hot Robot ????
The 38-year-old striker joined Burnley from Stoke on Deadline Day in a deal that saw Sam Vokes head in the opposite direction.
Peter Crouch has made a banging start to life at Burnley and he became an instant hit on Saturday after helping to win a stoppage-time penalty which earned Burnley a crucial 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Southampton.
The sausage, named Crouchie’s Red Hot Robot, is said to be ‘A Mexican Madness Delight’ and includes jalapeno peppers, tomato, garlic, onion and lemon juice.
It already appears to be a popular choice among customers and has got the owners and employees at the Heys Family Butchers doing their version of the robot behind the counter.
Danny Heys, whose father George first started the trend for producing sausages in honour of Clarets legends, said that Crouch was a big enough character, in more ways than one, to warrant one so early in his Turf Moor career. “We normally only make a sausage for managers or players who have made a big contribution to the club, but we felt that Peter Crouch was a big enough character to deserve one.”
Lots of our customers were asking if we were going to make one, so we thought why not.
