Dagwood dog /’dæɡwʊd ’dɒɡ/   

(countable noun) Usage note: This is the usual term used by all speakers.

A hot dog sausage on a stick, covered in batter (made from mixed flour, milk or water and sometimes beaten eggs), deep fried and usually dipped in tomato sauce. Dagwood dogs are popular at the Royal Adelaide Show.

Example: Like seeing Ferris wheels, show bags and animal displays, you know you're at a regional show if you're eating a Dagwood dog. (http://www.northernstar.com.au/news/dagwood-dogs-still-a-showtime-tradition/1145175/)
