Corn Dogs


  • 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 6 -8 small wooden sticks
  • 6 -8 hot dogs
  • oil, for deep-fat frying


  1. Combine cornmeal, flour, baking powder, salt and egg; mix well.
  2. Stir in milk to make a thick batter; place in a tall narrow glass. Let stand 4 minutes to thicken.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil to 375 degrees F.
  4. Pat hot dogs dry. Dust with flour if desired. Insert sticks in hot dogs; dip into batter. Let excess drip off.
  5. Fry until golden brown, about 5-6 minutes. (I’ve found it works best to fry them one at a time. Unless you have a fryer that is big enough to handle more without them touching.).
  6. Drain on paper towel.
