The word sausage covers a wide range of foods, typically they are ground meats with spices and seasonings, often stuffed into a casing and shaped like a cylinder. But many sausages are served as patties, especially breakfast sausages, so if you include patties in the category, well then hamburgers are a form of sausage and as long as we're being inclusive, why not meatballs, meatloaf, kofta, paté, and terrines? Make the sausage and shape it any way you like, with or without the casings!
Why are hot dogs so popular? They are fast, kid friendly, they have saved many harried parents with no time to cook, and they just plain taste good.
