knackwurst; knockwurst

Short, thick links of precooked beef sausage that is well flavored with garlic. Knackwurst is usually boiled or grilled before serving, often with sauerkraut. The name comes from the German knack (“crack”) and wurst (“sausage”). It was so named from the crackling sound the sausage makes when bitten into. See also sausage.
