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.
