  • deep fryer or dutch oven

  • paper towel


Battered Sausage

  • 1 Pound Kielbasa (or other sausage)
  • 3/4 Cup All-purpose flour Extra for coating
  • 1/4 Cup Cornstarch or Rice Flour
  • 1 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Beer Very Cold
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt

Horseradish Honey Mustard

  • 1/4 cup Honey Mustard
  • 1 1/2 tsp Horseradish

Chipotle Mayo

  • 1/4 cup Mayo
  • 1 tbsp Canned Chipotle Sauce


  • Mix each sauce in small bowls and refrigerate until ready to eat.
  • Preheat the oil to 350 degrees.
  • Add the ¾ cup flour, corn starch, baking powder, beer, salt in a large bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined and smooth. Do not make the batter until the oil is heated up.
  • Coat the sausage with flour, then dip into the batter.
  • Cook in batches. Fry for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Continue until all batches are done. Enjoy!


  • We cut our sausages to about 3 inches long which is more than one serving.
  • You can also cut the sausage into medallions to make an appetizer.
  • Your frying station setup should flow like this: sausages => flour => batter => deep fryer/dutch oven => baking rack
  • This recipe is excellent to reheat in an air fryer at 400 degrees for 3 -5 minutes.
  • Oil should be at least 2 to 3 inches deep to submerge fully.
  • To avoid lowering the temperature too much, fry in small batches.
  • Bring the temperature back up to 350-degrees between each batch.
