Know Your Sausage: Cheddarwurst

Ask any scientist what the most astounding invention of the last century or so was, and they will answer, “the injection of cheese into a frankfurter to form a cheesy sausage.” If they do not answer in such manner, then they are a terrorist disguised as a scientist and you should report them immediately to the Department of Homeland Security. If the feds don’t listen, report them to Hebrew National, because God shall deal harshly with their souls.

The genius of the idea lies in its simplicity: tunnels of molten cheese lying inside spicy sausage which ooze out when you bite into it. If you don’t mind a little mess, it’s heavenly.

Who invented Cheddarwurst, though? Is that even the official name? The internet provides few clues. Even pictures are scarce. Hillshire Farms (a division of Sara Lee) seems to have the market cornered on grocery store cheese-filled sausage. There are a few “gourmet” places to get them, too: we found them at Bean’s, Crawford Sausage and Dietz & Watson.

We’ll continue to search for the origins of this magical – dare I say, miraculous – creation. Look for Part 2 of this “Know Your Sausage” in the coming weeks.

    Okay. I like cheddarwursts. I’m not even going to read this article. Nope. No sireee. No way. No how. And you cant make me!

  2. Hey, I found this by Googling “What is Cheddarwurst”?! Nice. Now I know! We have a meat sales outlet associated with the university in our city, and one of the offerings this week is Cheddarwurst. I’m getting some, pronto. And maybe some Weisswurst as well (naked truth: I have no idea what Weisswurst is.)

  3. OMG I love these!!! They are just amazing 🙂

    you ask who invented them? hickory farms was the first place i saw them for sale this was in the late 70s/early 80s.
    they stopped carrying them in the 80s then hillshire started selling them a bit later
    the hillshire sausage tastes same as the hickory farms kind, to me

  5. I don’t think Hebrew National would be too interested in non–Kosher prosecutions. Meat and dairy, def treff.
