Debrezeiner - Austrian

Debreziner has been sold on Vienna street carts since the 19th century. The sausage actually originates in Hungarian city Debrecen since its name. It was officially incorporated as an Austrian sausage into Austrian Sausage Register in 1921 (Codex Alimentarius Austriacus). This emulsified sausage is smoked and water cooked. The sausage is served with mustard, sauerkraut and peppers by heating in water. It is seldom grilled.
