5 Different Types Of Sausage From Around The World

Sausage is one of the oldest types of methods of processing meat and was created in order for butchers to efficiently make the most out of every animal product. Now, nearly every culture has their own version of a sausage

1. Andouille

Though most people associate andouille with Louisiana creole and cajun cuisine, it actually originated in France. Andouille is known for being as a main ingredient in gumbo and jambalaya.

2. Kielbasa

Kielbasa, sometimes referred to as Polish sausage, is, you guessed it, sausage that originated in Poland. In Poland, kielbasa doesn’t refer to a specific type of sausage, just sausage in general, so if you go sausage shopping in Poland, you need to know what you’re looking for beforehand.

3. Italian Sausage

Italian sausage is perhaps the most versatile sausage on this list. In Italy, the range of sausages and meats are vast, however, Italian sausage as Americans know it usually refers to a seasoned pork-based product that is either hot, mild, or sweet

4. Bratwurst

Germany is home to many sausages, but Americans are probably most familiar with bratwurst (often called a brat), which is made with course ground pork and veal in a natural casing. Bratwurst is usually seasoned with ginger, nutmeg, coriander, or caraway – giving it mild flavor

5. Chorizo

Chorizo is a spicy sausage that originated in Spain and Portugal, but is also widely popular in Mexico. In the United States, chorizo is typically made like it is in Mexico, which is with uncured pork or beef, garlic, chilies, paprika, oregano, and cumin.

How To Prepare

Chorizo is often sold without a casing, which makes it easy to cook on a skillet like you would ground beef. It can be used in all kinds of dishes, like breakfast burritos, tacos, and chili.
