Which snag is your favourite?
With our annual Sausage Fest in full swing this month, we thought we’d take a closer look at some of the best Market snags on offer. And if you thought there was only one variety, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Visit our butchers and poulterers for a fantastic variety of flavours. From chicken & vegetable to duck & veal and everything in between – we’ve got you covered!
Kevin’s Farm Fresh Poultry – Chicken and Vegetable
Kevin’s Poultry’s chicken & vegetable sausages are a family favourite for more than one reason. Not only are they lower in fat compared to your regular sausage but Kevin’s succulent chicken mince is teamed with tasty vegetables so you’re upping your veggie intake too, which also makes them perfect for the kids. Enjoy as is with your fave condiments or chop them up and stir through a risotto for something a little different.
Barossa Fine Foods – Duck & Veal
Have you ever tried duck & veal sausages before? Available from Barossa Fine Foods, these award-winning fine ground sausages contain 85% meat and a tasty medley of fennel, garlic, onion, parsley and cardamom for extra flavour. We like to pair them with a fresh salad or some delish summer vegies but they taste just as good on their own too!
Arthurs Quality Poultry – Apple Sage & Rosemary
The apple, sage and rosemary chicken sausage at Arthur’s Quality Poultry is the most popular variety – and for good reason! Made with lean chicken mince and teamed with juicy apples, this premium snag is made fresh on-site, ready for you to add to your summertime dinner repertoire. The best part? It’s also made a lot firmer than your regular sausage, which means it doesn’t contain as much fat.
Neil’s Meats – Chinese Plum
With a mixture of succulent pork and delicious beef, Neil’s Meats’ plum sausage has a distinctly Asian flavour. Using their very own special Chinese plum sauce mixed with spring onions and a fragrant collection of spices, this little guy tastes surprisingly just like a spring roll. Chop it up and add it to a stir fry with Asian vegies and some soy sauce for a quick and easy mid-week meal.
D&J poultry – Spinach & Pine Nuts
Green sausages and tzatziki? Yep, don’t knock it till you try it. D&J Poultry’s tantalising chicken, spinach, and pine nut sausages might not look like your regular sausage but they’re incredibly flavourful and go down a treat with tzatziki sauce or hummus. Go on, give it a go and tell us what you think!
Ian’s Meats – Sauicisses D’agneau Merguez
Looking for something a little different to throw on the barbie this Australia Day? Ian’s Meats’ Sauicisses D’agneau Merguez or ‘lamb sausage,’ is the perfect choice. Serve alongside a seasonal salad or enjoy sandwiched between a slice of good ol’ fashioned white bread. Be warned though, this one is just a little spicy!
John Cester’s Poultry & Game – Turkey Sausages
Turkey sausages are great if you’re looking for a healthier alternative and don’t feel like red meat. John Cester’s perfects its turkey sausage by using freshly chopped parsley and cracked pepper. A lighter and healthier alternative to chorizo or bacon, it works well in a pasta dish or paired with ingredients such as kale, tomato and pumpkin – get inventive!
Hagen’s Organic Butcher – The Cumberland Sausage
Originating from the hills and mountains of Cumbria, Hagen’s Organic Butcher’s old English Cumberland sausage is still as popular as ever. With sage, marjoram, white pepper and nutmeg as the main players, this tasty snag goes down a treat served alongside creamy mash and stir fried seasonal vegies.
Gary’s Quality Meats – Cheese Kransky
What happens when a butcher and a cheesemonger collaborate on a sausage? You get a unique cheese kransky, that’s what! Made from Gary’s wood-smoked free range Berkshire pork and paired with Maker & Monger’s mouth-watering Monterey Jack cheese, this cheese lover’s delight has quite a strong flavour so we recommend keeping it simple. Enjoy with a seasonal salad or pop it in a bun with some coleslaw.
J&L Quality Meat – Thick Sicilian Pork Sausage
J&L’s thick Sicilian sausages are made with pure lean sow pork, fennel, a touch of white wine and some cracked pepper. Besides barbecuing or grilling, these sausages taste just as good when pan-fried. Blanch your sausages to ensure they cook evenly, then fry them to your liking and serve with a side of herb chips. Enjoy!
