YOU’VE heard of builder’s tea, now there’s a builder’s banger too.

The new sausage recipe designed to sustain hungry workers was created by county butcher Checketts of Ombersley to celebrate British Sausage Week.

They then cooked up the sausages for 40 builders at the Redrow Homes’ Earl’s Park development in Worcester to sample.

Builders can burn up to 300 calories per hour on manual labour so the pork sausage with nutmeg and coriander should be perfect to keep them going.

Butcher Phil Checketts said: “Construction is hungry work and we wanted to give the builders a sausage that would help get them through the day.

“Sausages are an excellent source of high quality protein and contain essential amino acids necessary for growth, maintenance and repair of body tissue, making them ideal for those with manual jobs.”

British Sausage Week runs until Sunday.
