Mini sausages are smaller versions of regular sausages, made from various meats and vegetarian options. They can be classified by type and origin, and are prepared in the same way as full-size sausages. Examples include mini hot dogs, cocktail sausages, and mini octopus sausages.

Mini sausages are literally smaller versions of regular sausages. As with regular sausages, the exact definition of what constitutes a sausage will vary from country to country and region to region. While theoretically any sausage can be miniaturized, sausages and cured meats are usually too big. Examples of these sausages range from the mini hot dog in America to the cocktail sausage found in British buffets through to Romanian mititei sausage.

Sausages are both a means of preserving meat and using meat products that have not been used by butchers in other cuts. While many sausages are made from pork, there are also beef, chicken, and fish sausages. There is also a range of vegetarian and halal sausages available in many countries.

The preparation methods for full-size and mini sausages are identical. The meat is first minced or minced in small portions. It is then blended with herbs, spices or other ingredients ranging from other meats to fruits such as apricots and apples. The mixture is then forced into a membrane which is twisted to form sausages. With mini sausages, the meat is often forced through a smaller hole to produce a thinner sausage with the twisting taking place at shorter intervals to make a shorter sausage.

Like their larger cousins, mini sausages can be classified according to type and origin. Sausages can first be classified as raw, fresh, cooked or pre-cooked. They can therefore be sub-classified as smoked or dried. In Britain, most sausages are pre-cooked and sold in large packs. Mini hot dogs and mini corn dogs are also sold pre-cooked.

Boiled sausage, like sausage and American hot dogs, can be miniaturized. The mini hot dog is often used as a snack buffet or for children’s party meals along with mini burgers and finger sandwiches. The mini hot dog can also be dipped in cornmeal batter and fried to form a mini corn dog. In Japan, there are mini octopus sausages that are pre-cut, so when cooked, they expand to look like octopuses.

In Great Britain, mini sausages are also called cocktail sausages. They tend to be skewered on cocktail sticks and served alongside pineapple and cheese curds at buffets. The sausage is also used as an alternative to chipolata as an accompaniment to sliced ​​roasted and stuffed turkey in Christmas meals. Another alternative is to wrap the mini sausage in bacon before cooking.
