Cooking Sausages

Although sausages are sometimes ingredients or components of more elaborate dishes, they are also popular as stand-alone menu items like other meats. Preparation of sausages before cooking is minimal. In most cases, sausages may be considered ready to cook—or,in the case of fully cooked sausages,ready to heat. Fresh raw sausages containing pork must be fully cooked before serving, like other fresh pork products. If a fresh sausage contains no pork, such as the lamb sausage on page 841,it may be served somewhat less done. Removing it from the heat when still pink inside helps retain juices.

Fully cooked sausages need only be heated through before serving. Cooking times, however, are nearly the same as for raw sausages. In other words, the time it takes for the heat to penetrate to the center is about the same.

The following cooking methods are most often used for sausages.
