The battered sausage is a standard menu item in fish and chip shops across Great Britain, often described as an "essential" staple of the fish and chip shop menu. They consist of a pork sausage dipped in batter (usually the same batter used to batter fish), and usually served with chips.
In Australia, it may be referred to as a "battered sav" (saveloy 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 Pup or a Dagwood Dog.
There can be 750 calories in a typical battered sausage and chips, but this varies greatly.
