Not exactly square, but cuboid sausages. I invented these because my mum is complaining that it is hard to turn sausages over under a hot grill. So it would be easier to do this, and also prevent that aggravating roll to which they are prone, if they have flat sides.

A similar problem, fixed a different way. http://www.halfbake...dea/Sausage_20Clips

       Lorne sausage (sliced sausage) is square, but in a different way, like toast. It doesn't have skin, just huge lumps of gristle.   

       Most modern sausages contain too much water to hold a square shape, but if you find the right sort of high-quality sausages, you might be able to squish them before cooking.

       Sausages are squeezed out of a cylindrical shaped tube, it shouldn't be too much of a problem to squeeze it out of square shaped tubes? I would buy them, if they were available in the shops.

       Perhaps she should take them out from under the grill before attempting to turn them over.

       Baked. The slicey. Available on all good buttered rools, well at least in my local eatery.

       If you made a sausage square it would lose it's sexual connotations and become less....interesting.

       Yes indeed
Not only is it decidedly unhip to be square, it is unnatural.

       Deep fried?

       And anyway, If you lay them the right way on a grill tray they are held in place by the grid and don't roll about at all. Suasages are cylindrical, if you make them square they become something else which is not sausage.

       A squasage?
arora, Nov 26 2001

       I thought it was determined that square sausages were baked (grilled?) in Scotland.

       'Fraid so. Baked, grilled, fried, deep-fried - Lorne sausage is sausage and it's square (as pottedstu says in the second annotation) - flat and patty-like, perhaps, but only after having been sliced from a big block o' sausage. You could theoretically just quarter that big block lengthways and have cuboidal(?) sausages as I suspect gizmo is imagining.
