My Kitchen Rules bacon criticism no snag to friendship

THERE'S nothing a good sausage can't fix - even a falling out between friends in front of two million viewers on national television.

Hervey Bay's My Kitchen Rules couple Dan and Steph are still great mates with Scotty the butcher, despite Dan rubbishing Scotty's bacon on the show last Thursday.

On Friday, Scotty Reid said he stood behind the quality of his meats.

Dan said the last thing he and Steph wanted to do was give any bad publicity to the man who originally taught Dan how to make sausages.

Dan said in the heat of the moment as his braised bacon meal was going badly, he made a comment that he did not think would end up on television.

"We felt terrible when we saw it," said Steph.

On Tuesday, all three met up again at Scotty's Mad About Meats in Pialba and affirmed there were no hard feelings, as Dan helped Scotty prepare a batch of curried pork and sultana sausages.

"I don't hold any grudges," said Scotty.

Dan and Steph are set to be back in action on My Kitchen Rules on Wednesday night.

Although they were sworn to secrecy over the result, they promised the level of competition would be "brutal".

They said the experience of appearing on the show was amazing.

"It's overwhelming," Steph said as she described how many people stopped them in the street to say hello and wish them well.
