Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

In Australia, a hot dog sausage on a stick, deep fried in batter, is known as a Dagwood Dog, Pluto Pup, or Dippy Dog, depending on region. Variants exist that use wheat-based or corn-based batters.

These are not to be confused with the British and Australian Battered Sav, a saveloy deep fried in a wheat-flour-based batter, as used for fish and chips, which generally does not contain polenta (cornmeal). In New Zealand and South Korea, a similar battered sausage on a stick is called a “hot dog”, whereas a “frankfurter” sausage in a long bun is referred to as an “American hot dog”
