A frank is a pink sausage that is used to make hot dog. The name was shortened from “frankfurter” in order to make it sound more like a human name. Frank is composed of a medley of low-grade meat that has been liquified, stuffed into an edible tube-like container, and cooked.
Frank tastes bad to mediocre. Surprisingly, after being doused in condiments and thrown in a hot dog bun, it performs rather nicely. It's preferable to over–cook it via grill in order to further destroy its questionable flavor and consistency.
Frank became an official snack on June 4th 2012.
