Battered Sausage

Battered sausages are a type of sausage, 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. One variation that can be found in County Meath in Ireland is known as the “Boardsmill”. Named after the small village between Trim and Longwood, it consists of a battered sausage that is split lengthways after cooking and filled with ketchup and onion.
