Corn Dogs Recipe

Corn dogs are such a treat, especially when they’re homemade. A quality dog wrapped in a sweet, fluffy and crisp dough is just irresistible. They always bring back memories of my childhood. I remember savoring them at fairs and festivals. Nothing to me says fair food more than a corn dog, besides maybe a funnel cake or watermelon.  My hometown is home to a watermelon festival, and the neighboring town is home to a possum festival, but that’s a story for another day. And no I’ve never had possum.

I’ve been wanting to make corn dogs forever, but have just now got around to it. They’re so easy. Just mix the batter, dip the dogs, and fry until golden brown. I fried just one at a time because I was afraid I would burn them. I served these just with coleslaw and mustard for dipping. It was a perfect quick and easy dinner.
