Food glorious food: Wrapped sausages

Have you ever notice some food ideas are, so good that lots of cultures; have their own version such as meatballs, stews and pies.

One of my favourite foods, which I only usually eat at this time of year is what I call devils on horseback. Most people say pigs in blankets though so I tried to research where the name comes from. I suspected devils on horseback was a Cumbrian term because it was my Grandma born in Cumbria who called them that.

Devils on horseback are sausages or sausage meat wrapped in bacon. Have you eaten something similar, what do you call it?

From my research I have discovered the following although, some are sausage in pastry rather than bacon.

Scotland: kilted Sausages

Czech-American dish :klobasnek.

German: Würstchen im Schlafrock (“sausage in a dressing gown“) uses sausages wrapped in puff pastry or, more rarely, pancakes

Russia: Сосиска в тесте (Sosiska v teste, “sausage in dough“).

Israel: Moshe Ba’Teiva (Moses in the basket) which ishot dog rolled in a ketchup-covered sheet of puff pastry or phyllo dough and baked.

Denmark: Pølse i svøb, which means “sausage in blanket”, usually sold at hot dog stands known as pølsevogn (sausage-wagons). The American-style pigs in a blanket are known as Pølsehorn, meaning “Sausage horns”.

Finland: nakkipiilo, which means “hidden sausage” .

Mexico: salchitaco; the sausage is wrapped in a tortilla and deep fried in vegetable oil. The name “salchitaco” comes from the fusion of the ords salchicha (sausage) and taco(sausage taco).

Australia and New Zealand: pig in a blanket is a cocktail frankfurter wrapped in bacon and/or puff pastry.

China: “Lap Cheong Bao” which is sausage wrapped in pastry and is steamed rather than baked.

Hong Kong: Cheung Jai Bau” or “Hot Dog Bun” is sausage in pastry.

Estonia: “viineripirukas”, which means sausage pastry.

Serbia: “rol viršla”, lit. (hot) dog roll.

Any others?
