SausageSpotting – $1,500 Total Cash in the Johnsonville Sausage Recipe Contest We’re Hosting!

Johnsonville Sausage - Hot Italian

Ohmymymymy my, what do we want to say about sausages?

Believe me when I say — um, how should I say this? — a lot of interesting phrases went through our heads as we thought about how to present this sausage recipe contest to you, but what else would you expect from a girl who calls sriracha sauce “hot cock?


In the end though, we’re just giving it to you straight up because it’s a pretty serious amount of cash (at least, it is for us).

We’ve teamed up with Johnsonville Sausages to give three deserving winners $1,500 in cash.

Johnsonville Sausage Recipe Contest Promo UnitIt’s easy to take your shot at the $1,000 Grand Prize and two $250 no-points-for-second-place First Runners-Up.

Start with any familiar recipe, and instead of using the regular old ground beef or chicken, just use any Sweet, Mild or Hot Italian Johnsonville Sausage, which by itself adds all kinds of flavor. Hey, and if you want to develop a brand new recipe using Johnsonville Sausage, we aren’t going to stop you.

If you’re ready to enter the recipe contest and take a part of that $1,500, just click here to fill out the entry form! Otherwise, go into the weekend thinking about it — you have six weeks to get us something good. Don’t worry, you know we’ll be reminding you every few days about this.

Questions? Comments? Just want to waste more time on the Internet? Try browsing the Official Rules or FAQ (coming soon!). If you still have questions after that, ask them in the comments here so we can answer for everyone, or if you’re shy about commenting, contact us directly.

The best sausages are romanian sausages, try to find a Romanian store in US and buy some.

Very cool. We made a little something for the competition already, just need to type it up.

Question: Can we post it on our blog first, and still enter, or should we wait until after the competition ?

hey anders: we’re going to check with Johnsonville and get back to you immediately! thanks for asking! (we’re going to add that to the FAQ!)

Is Johnsonville sausage available in Malaysia?


Debs October 17, 2010 at 6:02 am

Once again I see you have to be resident of USA to enter this competition! What about the rest of us?


elra October 20, 2010 at 11:35 am

Just curious if you answered Anders Heie question, because I have the same question as well. I couldn’t locate you FAQ location. Thank you !


Claire October 20, 2010 at 11:26 pm

When I tried to submit my recipe, I didn’t get any kind of “confirmation” note/screen/email… Should I be worried, or is there any way to know if it was definitely submitted?


lexie October 25, 2010 at 9:38 am

Great contest! I have the same question as Claire above. No confirmation notice. I assume my entry went through?


Anto October 26, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Sounds like a great contest. Will have to think about some good use of sausage.


Hannah @ greenoats&jam October 29, 2010 at 3:29 am

I always love a sausage with a snappy casing. Those are the best. (:


Carolyn/fooddreamer November 2, 2010 at 10:47 am

Love this contest, but then, I love sausages. Love ’em all! I’ve sent in my entry and it barely matters whether or not it wins, because it was so good, I will happily make it again!


Barbara November 15, 2010 at 9:05 am

I sumitted a recipe about 5 minutes ago and the only screen that came up after submission was the newsletter screen did I get my entry in?


Ray Moody November 15, 2010 at 7:09 pm

Close one!
I thought I had a few more days. Just snuck under the wire.
Fun contest, thanks for hosting.


Maria December 6, 2010 at 9:59 am

When will the results of the contest be announced?


Anders December 14, 2010 at 3:31 pm

So, who won, any updates?


anders April 11, 2011 at 11:08 pm
