Sandra Bald, a 51-year-old carer from Milton Keynes had the last laugh as her husband attempted to cook sausages using tea lights.
The story unfolds as Sandra entered a photo of her hungry husband into the ‘foodie faux pas’ photo competition launched by tastecard, the UK’s largest dining club.
tastecard launched the competition to find the nation’s most disastrous cooking catastrophes.
The lucky competition winner will receive a £200 Prezzo voucher and a year’s tastecard membership, worth £79.99.
Sandra said: “I took this photo of my husband trying to cook sausages with tea lights; it definitely wasn’t his best idea.
“As you can see, it was a very slow process.”
