Extrawurst is a type of Austrian scalded cold cut. It is moist, light coloured, fine textured and made from a well-spiced mixture of beef, pork and bacon fat. In Austria, it is the most popular type of cold cut.
One variety is the Pikantwurst. Unlike the Extrawurst, it has finely chopped red or green peppers added to it.
German idiomatic expression
Extrawurst is also a frequently used German expression of disapproval relating to someone wanting special treatment. One would say "Er will immer eine Extrawurst gebraten haben" (he always wants an additional sausage grilled for him) to express that someone wants something out of the ordinary.
