QUICK FACT

WHY ARE SAUSAGES CALLED BANGERS?

They got that name in the Second World war.

Because there was a shortage of meat the Army cooks figured out that you pad them out by adding heaps of water.

Trouble is when they cooked them the water turned to steam and the bangers started exploding in the pan.

Funny thing is… too many sausages are still being pumped up with heaps of water.
