Last Updated on May 2, 2022 by Share My Kitchen

The staple of Irish and UK cuisine is the battered sausage. Also, they can be found in Australia and New Zealand. This delicious dish is beloved by many and has a reputation that rivals fish and chips. 

How To Serve Battered Sausage?

This classic dish is served with chips (or fries) and the usual accompaniments: mustard, ketchup and, if you wish, a cold beer.

These are very similar to a corndog (a hot dog sausage covered in thick cornmeal batter), but they are usually not served on sticks.

Battered Sausage Recipe


  • 12 sausages
  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 300ml Guinness Beer
  • 1L Vegetable Oil 
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  • Sieve


How to Make Battered Sausages

  1. Begin by heating the oil in a Dutch oven or deep-frying pan. The temperature of the oil should reach 180°C.
  2. Next, make your batter. Add the flour in a mixing bowl, and season it with salt and pepper. Then, add the beer slowly and stir continuously to properly mix them together. After all the beer is added, you will have a thick, pouring batter.
  3. Coat the sausages evenly in batter by dipping them one at a time. Then, for around 8 minutes, deep-fry the sausages in batches. Take the sausages out of the oil and sprinkle with sea salt. Let them rest on a kitchen roll. Continue this process until all sausages are cooked.
  4. Serve immediately with homemade chips or mushy beans.

There is absolutely nothing better than battered sausage with chips and mushy peas.

You can always choose this battered sausage recipe that is healthier to celebrate the end-of-the week, instead of eating the local chippy.

What To Add To Battered Sausage

Go with the delicious, freshly cooked sausage with crispy batter since those combined cannot go wrong. However, you will certainly be a winner when you combine it with chips and mushy peas.

Sprinkle some red pepper flakes on your battered sausage to add some level of spice.
