helium stuffed sausages

he sings for your supper
  [vote for,

for easier frying, manufacturers would add some helium at the same time as the sausage meat is introduced to the skins and before twisting the links more tightly than tradition dictates.

producing, I imagine, bouncier sausages in the pan, less likely to stick and burn – more evenly cooked & uniformly tanned comestibles.

prick sausages during cooking as usual and high squeaky whistles will alert your family to the table.

They probably use helium in their food [sartep, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       Sausage aficionados usually recommend not piercing sausages to keep the flavour in don't they? I've got a feeling these snags might explode! No?

       Well, I’ll admit I like the image of these sausages expanding in the pan to an enormous size before finally exploding from internal steam pressure. But the Helium doesn’t contribute anything.

       I beg to differ

       Isn't Helium flammable?

       what Helium said...

       Is the idea that helium will lighten the sausage? It won't. Besides, casings are gas permeable.

       these babies' aren't.

       My veggie sausages give me bad enough gas as it is!

       Hmmm ... flammable. Try using hydrogen instead of helium, and finished sausages would launch right onto the dinner plate.
