Here are some of the things our clever Facebook readers had to say about what to charge for a sausage sizzle and bacon and egg rolls:

  • $5 bacon and egg rolls instead of $4 to make change easier for both parties.
    I once tried making sausage sizzles $3, or 2 for $5 to get 50c coins out of the rotation, but it was too different from normal. $2.50 all the way now.
  • $5 for an e&b roll – but I make sure we have pastured eggs, the best bacon – and Beerenberg sauces. Each roll costs $2.40 to make, meaning we make a $2.60 profit for each one sold. We previously charged $4.50, but got sick of having to organise a float with lots of 50c pieces in it.
  • Bunnings does set the benchmark for a sausage sandwich…$2.50. We haven’t done bacon & egg rolls at our school for a while, but when we did I think it was $4. Keep in mind, some small takeaway shops sell bacon & egg rolls for $5.50 on a hamburger roll.
  • This election weekend in NSW we charged $3.50 for sausage or bacon only, $4 for either with egg and $5 for the lot (plus onions on all) if it’s for the school run by volunteers I don’t think people mind paying a bit extra!
  • We recently went up to $3 for a sausage sizzle at our community event markets held at our school. Just to see if people would pay it. They did, we sold out.
  • We did this on the weekend:
