Sausages are a meat product made from ground meat pork, beef, or poultry, along with salt and other flavourings. Other ingredients such as grains or breadcrumbs may be included as extenders; some sausages include other ingredients for flavour. The word "sausage" can refer to the loose sausage meat, which can be formed into patties or stuffed into a skin; when referred to as "a sausage," the product is cylindrical and encased in a skin. A sausage is formed in a casing traditionally made from intestine but sometimes from synthetic materials. Sausages that are sold raw are cooked in many ways, including pan-frying and barbecuing; some sausages are cooked during processing and the casing may be removed. Sausage making is a traditional food preservation technique. Sausages may be preserved by curing, smoking, or freezing; some cured or smoked sausages can be stored without refrigeration. Most fresh sausages must be frozen until they are cooked. Sausages come in a huge range of national and regional varieties, which differ by their flavouring or spicing ingredients, the meat used in them and their manner of preparation.

The word "sausage" was first used in English in the mid-15th century, spelled "sawsyge". This word came from Old North French saussiche"; the French word came from salsicus. Sausage making is an outcome of efficient butchery. Traditionally, sausage makers salted various tissues and organs such as scraps, organ meats and fat to help preserve them, they stuffed them into tubular casings made from the cleaned intestines of the animal, producing the characteristic cylindrical shape. Hence, sausages and salami are among the oldest of prepared foods, whether cooked and eaten or dried to varying degrees. An Akkadian cuneiform tablet records a dish of intestine casings filled with some sort of forcemeat; the Chinese sausage làcháng, which consists of goat and lamb meat, was first mentioned in 589 BC. The Greek poet Homer mentioned a kind of blood sausage in the Odyssey, Epicharmus wrote a comedy titled The Sausage, Aristophanes' play The Knights is about a sausage vendor, elected leader. Evidence suggests that sausages were popular both among the ancient Greeks and Romans and most with the various tribes occupying the larger part of Europe.

The most famous sausage in ancient Italy was from Lucania and was called lucanica, a name which lives on in a variety of modern sausages in the Mediterranean. During the reign of the Roman emperor Nero, sausages were associated with the Lupercalia festival. Early in the 10th century during the Byzantine Empire, Leo VI the Wise outlawed the production of blood sausages following cases of food poisoning. Traditionally, sausage casings were made of the cleaned intestines, or stomachs in the case of haggis and other traditional puddings. Today, natural casings are replaced by collagen, cellulose, or plastic casings in the case of industrially manufactured sausages; some forms of sausage, such as sliced sausage, are prepared without a casing. Additionally, luncheon meat and sausage meat are now available without casings in tin jars. A sausage consists of meat cut into pieces or ground, mixed with other ingredients, filled into a casing. Ingredients may include a cheap starch filler such as breadcrumbs or grains and flavourings such as spices, sometimes others such as apple and leek.

The meat may be from any animal but is pork, beef or veal, or poultry. The lean meat-to-fat ratio depends upon the producer; the meat content as labelled may exceed 100%. In some jurisdictions foods described. For example, in the United States The Department of Agriculture specifies that the fat content of different defined types of sausage may not exceed 30%, 35% or 50% by weight. Many traditional styles of sausage from Asia and mainland Europe use no bread-based filler and include only meat and flavorings. In the United Kingdom and other countries with English cuisine traditions, many sausages contain a significant proportion of bread and starch-based fillers, which may comprise 30% of ingredients; the filler in many sausages helps them to keep their shape. As the meat contracts in the heat, the filler absorbs moisture and fat from the meat; when the food processing industry produces sausages for a low price point any part of the animal can end up in sausages, varying from cheap, fatty specimens stuffed with meat blasted off the carcasses and rusk.

On the other hand, the finest quality contain only choice cuts of seasoning. In Britain, "meat" declared on labels could in the past include fat, connective tissue, MRM; these ingredients may still be used but must be labelled as such, up to 10% water may be included without being labelled. Sausages are emulsion-type products, they are composed of solid fat globules, dispersed in protein solution. The proteins function by stabilizing them in water. Sausages classification is subject to regional differences of opinion. Various metrics such as types of ingredients and preparation are used. In the English-speaking world, the following distinction between fresh and dry s
