Do you ever buy a sausage sizzle for charity, or do you not like them?

I used to buy them often before I stopped eating red meat some 12 years ago - I was always drawn by the smell of them which I still love.

However nowadays I just walk past even though I like the smell! They smell was always actually better than the taste as usually there was a huge white roll that was a large part of what I could taste.
They are not exactly healthy so it is one thing I do not mind foregoing even though the Charity does not receive money from me.

I am a member of the local Lions Club and we have sausage sizzles from time to time. I usually have a sausage for lunch when I am working, as it is either that, or starve. I don't really like sausages, but if we are busy, thats all we have time for. We count on the smell bringing people in, and it usually works.It takes a very hardy soul to walk past. It is my job to do all the running around ordering and picking up the sausages, bread and onions. We have found a great butcher who supplies excellent sausages which are nice and thick, and have very little fat. They keep their shape pretty well too. We get lots of compliments about them . I don't mind driving further for them, and the price can't be matched by any other supermarket or butcher
Never heard of a sausage sizzle, so it must be an Australian thing. Is it the savoury equivalent of Girl Scout cookies? I would buy one though as I don't like sausages.
Bryony - it is as p[er the picture - friend onions on a long roll, with a sausage and tomato sauce - and yes, it is an Australian thing, I guess. They are on all round the shopping centres etc to raise money for charities on weekends.

I gathered as much. Why are they in burger buns instead of hot dog buns? Wrong shape isn't it?

As you probably guessed, My last post was meant to say 'wouldn't buy', not 'would'.
hadnt noticed that in hte photo - they should be in the long buns not the burger buns!

Oh, okay, that makes more sense :)
Ours are just in bread

Himself always gets two so I don't feel bad about not wanting to eat the sausages of strangers. *ahem* Also, I prefer carefully vetted sausages if I am going to eat one at all and I like butter on my bread, so sausage sizzles are not going to make much off me, sadly :(
by Rice
I've only had them once to twice from outside Bunnings. They raise monies for different charities each week-end. The sausage is between 1 slice of bread, which I'd rather have than a bun, I like mine with butter, fried onions, mustard & sweet chilli sauce & or tomato sauce. As they are so messy to eat, I prefer to eat mine, sitting in the car with 1/2 a dozen paper napkins where no-one can see me eating it!

Bravo . . !!

Much as I love the ida that these do raise a huge amount of money for various charities, I do not like sausages, so I do not buy them!! Here in Qld , they are not done with a roll, but a slice of fresh bread so that does seem to make them easier to make a profit from. One group here actually does them with bacon and cheese as extras, so I have sometimes, spoilt myself and simply had a Bacon and Cheese Sizzle which is so bad for me, but SO delicious!!! I have often seen others forgo the suasage as well with this charity group!
P.S. Please forgive the typo errors? fingers just do not want to work this morning!!!!!

Ours in NSW are also not in buns, but usually between 1 or 2 slices of bread, Jules.
by Miro
Yep! we buy them for a few reasons.

1. It's just the Aussie thing to do .
2. If I am with any of my son's, that's a given.
3. It supports the Charity.
4. Saves me having to make them something.
5. It's on the go food :) wining!
I don't eat pork
by AJ
That's ok, AJ, lots of people don't eat pork. These snags are BEEF ones. Much cheaper to buy for a charity fundraiser than pork ones anyway!
by Miro
Not only do I buy them but I've often gone to Bunnings Warehouse on a Sunday just for the charity sausage sizzle at the door. Sometimes I don't even go into the store. I just enjoy my sausage and onion in bread. Mmmm ...mmm - what a relaxing Sunday lunch!
