Sausage lovers, your time has come, as Hafner’s, the country’s third bestselling banger, has launched a cookery competition which aims to find amateur cooks with the tastiest and most original recipes that feature the humble sausage

“People from Northern Ireland love sausages”, said Stephen O’Carroll, Marketing Director, Hafner’s Sausages. “We are expecting a great response to our search for sizzling recipes, and we will no doubt see loads of delicious snack suggestions or mealtime treats that will tickle the taste buds of our judges.”

Hafner’s has three judges who all love sausages to ensure the best recipes make it to the final, which is taking place at Belfast Cookery School on June 25th.

Stephen continued: “The judges are chef supremo, Ian Hunter, owner of Belfast Cookery School, funnyman and sausage lover, Ciaran Bartlett and radio personality, Carolyn Stewart who also has an award-winning range of pickles, sauces and marinades.
