Dinner Who doesn’t love a Corn Dog? This delicious homemade version is perfect for Halloween parties and pre-trick-or-treating eats!
- Heat the vegetable oil in a large pot to 350°F.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir well.
- Add the beaten egg and milk and whisk until well blended (the batter should be a little thicker than pancake batter; add more milk if needed).
- Remove the Hoffy Hot Dogs from the package and dry them well on paper towels (this will help the batter adhere better). Insert a skewer or wooden stick into each hot dog.
- Pour the batter into a tall drinking glass. Holding by the skewer, dunk the hot dog into the batter to coat well.
- Lift the hot dog out of the batter, allowing excess batter to drip off.
- Gently place the corn dog into the hot oil (stick and all!). Cook for 3 minutes, or until the corn dog is golden brown all over, turning the corn dog in the oil, as necessary.
- Remove the corn dog from the oil and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining hot dogs.
- Serve with ketchup, for dipping.
