Battered sausage is a British dish consisting of sausage fried in a batter similar to fish prepared as part of fish and chips. In late 1977, shortly after proposing to his then-girlfriend Petunia Evans, Vernon Dursley took Petunia to a chip shop on a date, where he ordered battered sausage. He dropped this sausage when Petunia violently embraced him when he assured her that the revelation that Petunia's sister Lily was a witch would not change her relationship with Vernon.[1]
