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, which has finely chopped red or green peppers added to it. Another type of Extrawurst called Gurkerlextra containing small chunks of pickled cucumber is also available.
German idiomatic expression
Extrawurst is also a frequently used German expression of disapproval relating to someone wanting or receiving special treatment. One would say "er will immer eine Extrawurst gebraten haben" or "er bekommt eine Extrawurst gebraten" ("he always wants or gets an additional/special sausage grilled/fried for him") to express that someone wants something out of the ordinary.
