Why Wait for the Fair? Make Corn Dogs at Home!

Who doesn’t love food on a stick? Corn Dogs are one of the ultimate food on sticks dishes. No need to wait for the fair to come to town to enjoy them. They’re quick and simple to pull together. They’re perfect for a week night meal or even for a burgers/dogs party. It’s as easy as mixing up the batter, dipping & frying. The hardest part will be deciding which sauce you’d like to make to dip them in ; )
We’re partial to a ketchup/mustard mix. It’s about three parts ketchup to one part yellow mustard. Sweet and Savory and the perfect compliment to the corn dogs.

While you’ve got the batter why not whip up a few DEEP FRIED STRAWBERRIES ; )

Corn Dogs
What you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 eggs – beaten
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour {plus additional for dredging}
1 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
hot dogs {of choice}
vegetable oil – enough to fry

What to do:
1. Place enough vegetable oil into a deep-sided frying pan {or deep frying machine} and heat to 375 degrees. I use a candy thermometer to monitor my oil temperature.

2. Into a large bowl add: milk, eggs, 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Whisk to combine. Set aside.

3. Into a separate bowl add: salt, sugar, 1 1/2 cups flour, cornmeal and baking powder. Whisk to combine. GRADUALLY add flour mixture to wet ingredients. Mix until well incorporated.

4. Insert candy sticks half way into each hot dog {careful not to pierce the hot dog}. Into a shallow pan, add enough flour to dredge hot dogs. Dredge hot dogs in flour and then dip them into batter mixture.

5. CAREFULLY place battered hot dogs into the hot oil. Do not crowd pan. Cook until golden. Turning so they’re evenly browned on all sides. Transfer corn dogs to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Continue until you have desired amount of corn dogs.

Serve with dipping sauce of choice.
