Corn dogs

One evening Kelly mentioned wanting a corn dog.  I had not had a corn dog for at least 15 years. I don’t even remember the last time I had a corn dog. I probably only ever had them once in my entire life. But as soon as she mentioned it I couldn’t get corn dogs off my mind. Funny how that works. If someone had said carrot sticks, I wouldn’t be giving them a second thought. But, corn dogs? I made them the very next day.

Like I said, I’d not eaten many corn dogs in my life, so I do not have much to compare these to.  But I can’t imagine a corn dog tasting any better than these. My Mom, who hates to eat anything on a stick, loved these. We decided to make these at the last minute. At first I was at a loss as to what kind of stick to use.  I was looking through my silverwear drawer for a bamboo skewer and instead I found disposable chop sticks. They worked perfect. Next time you get sushi to go, ask for extra chopsticks! Now, if you are thinking that this seems like a lot of batter for just 8 hot dogs, then check in tomorrow to see what we did with the extra batter!


Here is what you'll need

Combine the eggs with the milk

Add the vegetable oil

In a separate bowl add the flour, cornmeal, salt , sugar and baking powder

Gradually combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients

Insert a chop stick into each hot dog

Dredge the hot dogs in flour

Dip each hot dog in the batter

Fry each side until golden brown, set on a paper towel

Serve with dipping sauce of your choice: ketchup, mustard, cheese sauce...

    Wow, that’s awesome! We don’t have corndogs in Germany, so I’ve never actually had any, but my (American) step-mom loves them. I’ll definitely make her some using this recipe when she visits me next time! Thanks a lot :)
