All hail the sausage queen, long may she rein! The brains behind Chrissy's Cuts, Chrissy Flanagan has been serving snags to Sydney eateries and independent supermarkets since 2015. Now, the meat monarch finally has a keep to call her own, with the opening of what she's dubbed Australia's very first sausage cellar door.

Located on New Canterbury Road in Dulwich Hill, The Sausage Factory will be Chrissy's Cuts' new permanent home. Flanagan and her partner Jim have added a cozy bistro-bar to the front of their butcher shop home base, which will be open from 6pm until 10pm, Thursday to Sunday.

"We've loved seeing what chefs have done with our sausages over the past year and we've tried a lot of things on the Sausage Dogs at our pop-up events – but now we want to give it a proper crack," said Jim.

Standout sausages include lamb shoulder with sumac and mint, and chicken with lemon and honey, plus a vegetarian option made with scarmorza, zucchini, almost and currant. Each banger comes with lemon garlic yoghurt with capers, house-made beer mustard with tarragon, pink and orange pickles, and apple in Poor Tom's Gin. Alternatively, you can get it as a 'dog' in bread with green onion and Handsome Devils Co tomato sauce.

With the liquor licence still pending, punters can BYO or visit the bottle shop around the corner. They'll also be able to take home a little something for their pantries — be it Eat Me Chutney, Westmont Pickles or even Chunky Dave's Peanut Butter. And naturally, Chrissy's Cuts will be available by the kilo.

Find The Sausage Factory at 380 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill. For more information visit
