I sometimes see a big pile of small tins in my supermarket, containing Vienna Sausages. I tried them once, out of curiosity, and it left me wondering who the heck keeps buying them?

I'm afraid to try them. Not even cutting them into amusing octopus shapes can convince me that they contain any nutritional value making them worth eating.

They're just salty little slices of hot dog canned in chicken broth, with a mushy consistency from being packed in liquid.

They're so mushy they won't hold any shape so you can't make them into octopus shapes. :(

Vienna Sausage is one of those foods that came out of WWII, well most canned foods did. They are sold relatively inexpensive so it's a food that has certain appeal to those who are price conscience.

I've seen VS used as appetizers in their normal form and as inventive creations, most of these are made by molding the VS into a form after it has be ground to a patte' like substance. Also VS regains a certain level of rigidity after heat is applied, I assume this comes from boiling away the liqiud soaked into the sausage, microwaving it is a surprisingly good way of acomplishing this.

Interestingly both VS and SPAM are popular in Hawaii, where it is considered a staple, often served sliced and fried as replacement for link sausage or bacon in breakfast meals.

I've seen it used in arroz con gandules. I mostly pick out the vienna sausages, and keep eating.

I actually get a craving for vienna sausages every couple of years. Never act on it, though.
