A battered sausage, sliced in half after cooking

Battered sausages are a type of cuisine, found all across the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, They are similar in concept to a corn dog (a hot dog sausage coated in a thick layer of cornmeal batter) but normally are not served on a stick. In Australia, it may be referred to as a sav in batter (savaloy is a type of sausage). This may also have given rise to the local expression "fair suck of the sav". In New Zealand, they can be found either with or without a stick inserted (similar to a corn dog). If served with the stick, it is referred to as a hot dog and usually dipped in a generous amount of tomato sauce and consumed immediately. In Australia, this variant may also be referred to as a Pluto Pop or a Dagwood Dog. They consist of a pork sausage dipped in batter (usually the same batter used to batter fish, as they are primarily sold from fish and chip shops), and usually served with chips.[1]

There are 750 calories in a typical battered sausage and chips,[2] but this varies greatly.
