A good corn dog recipe can take you back to the carnival. You'll love bringing that happy, carnival feel, to your dinner table with the delicious taste of corn dogs. Loved by children and adults everywhere, this recipe is sure to be a big hit.
This Corn Dog Recipe is for 10 hot dogs. You can increase the recipe as needed for more corn dogs.
Vegetable oil for frying 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (for dredging) 2/3 cup yellow cornmeal 1/3 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 cup milk 1 egg, well beaten 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 10 Hot Dogs 10 wooden skewers (tip: I use new popsicle sticks I have on hand in place of skewers. Works fine.)
Place oil in deep-fat fryer or deep pot and heat to 375 F.
Place 1/2 cup flour in pie pan and set aside (for coating hot dogs later).
Mix cornmeal, 1/3 cup flour and salt in a bowl. Add milk, egg, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Mix well and set aside.
Insert wooden skewers into the frankfurters. Roll in flour to coat, shaking off excess. Dip hot dog in cornmeal batter, then fry in oil until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
These can be a little time consuming, but the savings alone is worth the effort. Not to mention, my kids love them for a snack or a meal as a change to just plain hot dogs.
To save time, prepare the corn dog recipe ahead of time, cook corn dogs, and freeze for later use. This is a good tactic if your planning to use for a party or backyard fair and need a large quantity.
