Sausages are one of the oldest processed foods, dating back to the 9th century B.C. The exact origin of the hot dog style of sausage however is greatly debatable, though the most prominent claims credit Germany with the creation of this food, originally termed the “dachshund” sausage, thus linking the word “dog” to this popular fare.
