Democracy Sausage

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

As Australians always vote on a Saturday and voting is compulsory, there is always high voter turnout for both state and federal elections. Many polling places are located at schools, community halls and churches, with these groups often taking advantage of the large number of people coming to their location by setting up fundraising stalls.

THE Democracy Sausage

Democracy Sausage

For many community groups this is the biggest fundraising event of the year.

Unlike an election, there should be NO choices. There is only one way to make a Democracy Sausage and this is your definitive reference.

So What Are The Rules

Before presenting the recipe let us address any bad habits you may have acquired when presenting a Democracy Sausage :

  1. The sausage should be a cheap fat sausage (you can get them at most supermarkets). Do not use flavoured sausages, thin sausages, or frankfurters ;
  2. When cooked, the sausage should have signs of charring with blackened burnt bits ;
  3. Fresh bread only must be used. Bread rolls, bagels, or any other medium must not be used ;
  4. The bread may be buttered however a good greasy sausage and onions should eliminate this ;
  5. This is Australia so throw away the American mustard. That yellow goop is for American hotdogs not a democracy sausage ;
  6. Onion rings must be cooked so they are somewhere between charred and burnt. Do not serve anaemic translucent onion rings.
  7. The only condiment on a Democracy Sausage is Tomato Sauce.
  8. When serving a Democracy Sausage must be placed on a paper serviette. Any other presentation method is unacceptable.

Ingredients

  • 1 fat sausage

  • ¼ - ½ cup fried onion rings
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce

Instructions

  • Fire up the BBQ and wait until the plate or grill plate is hot.
  • Toss on the first lot of sausages you will be cooking and allow to cook through, turning occasionally until the are charred. Note that patches of burnt sausage is desirable.
  • On another section of the grill put a big pile of onion rings and cook, flipping and nudging about until they are charred.

To serve :

  • Take a serviette and place a slice of bread on top.
  • Place a charred sausage onto the bread slice, positioning it diagonally from corner to corner.
  • Add tomato sauce - anywhere from a couple of tablespoons to a good drenching (the amount is up to the end-user).
  • Spread the charred onions evenly along the sausage.
  • Hand the completed Democracy Sausage over to the voter and move on to making the next one.
