- The most common sausage of English-speaking countries, made from ground pork, flavourings, extenders and binders filled into casings and linked. Quantities of extenders depend on the price and local laws. In the UK many suspect extenders which legally count as meat such as drinde, MRM, etc. are incorporated in the cheaper versions, together with a high proportion of rusk and cereal fillers. UK sausages are usually flavoured with sage, cayenne pepper and possibly cloves, ginger, nutmeg or mace. USA sausages are normally flavoured with cardamom, coriander and nutmeg.
