Hagrid made them tea and offered them stoat sandwiches, which they refused. (PS14)

Definition

Definitely not a British delicacy. JKR made this up. A stoat is a small mammal similar to a weasel which is found in Britain and Ireland. It is not usually eaten by humans, in sandwiches or any other form. [The Mammal Society]
