Cooked Sausage

A few kinds

Precooked smoked sausage, originally from Germany. Traditionally made from a fine pork paste, it is now found in several variations. The French version may contain beef and veal, while the North American version, the famous hot dog frankfurter, may contain mechanically separated meat, pork or beef by-products, as well as sweeteners, flavoring agents and additives. They contain up to 30% fat. 

Sausages from Strasbourg and Frankfurt are smoked and the casing may be removed before sale.
