“Sausage and beer together offer a unique treat for the senses that is incredibly satisfying,” said NHDSC President Eric Mittenthal. “Some sausage manufacturers are even offering beer-infused sausages with the flavors cooked right into the sausage, but no matter how you are enjoying the two together, there are an array of options to meet different taste preferences.”
Another part of the National Sausage Month celebration includes the NHDSC’s 4th annual sausage recipe contest. First place wins a $250 gift card for their favorite sausage and a Sausage Pan, designed with deep curves specifically to cook sausages. The runner-up will receive a $100 gift card plus a Sausage Pan.
Recipes must include beer as an ingredient, as part of the cooking instructions or as a complimentary beverage. Recipes must be made in less than 20 minutes and should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 20.
