The M&DIAI hosts an Italian Sausage Sizzle Competition each year, usually in August. If you have a soft spot for Italian sausages accompanied by delicious slices and cakes you can’t miss this event. The cost is $10 per person at the door, no bookings required.
If you missed last year's competition, here is a recap of what you missed...
Five contestants presented their special blends of herbs, spices and wine to make their 5kg of regional typical Italian sausages. The 25 kg of special blend sausage meat was from the Freckle Farm butchery on Nebo Road.
70 people attended the event and via their taste tests, voted on the best sausage of the day. This was won by Leo Baretta, a long term contestant.
The next Italian Sausage Sizzle is held on a Sunday, in August 2019, starting at 2:30pm at the Andergrove Neighbourhood Centre on Bedford Road, Andergrove.
The August 2019 Sausage Sizzle will again feature a people’s choice competition that sees different local Italian sausage recipes go against each other for the crown of best Italian sausage of the Mackay region. Contact us if you want to enter your secret family recipe in the competition.
