The American corndog is a staple of county and state fairs across the country. A frankfurter enveloped in deep fried cornbread dough is not exactly good for you, but they taste great and everyone loves a treat.

Corn Dogs
Recipe type: Sandwiches
Serves: 10
  • 2/3 Cup stone-ground cornmeal
  • 1/3 Cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons corn flour; (optional) (available at Indian markets and health food stores)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash white or Cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 1/2 Cup seltzer or plain water; more or less
  • 10 hot dogs
  • flour; for dusting
  • oil; for frying
  1. Whisk together the cornmeal, all-purpose flour, corn flour, salt, pepper, egg, oil and seltzer in a large bowl. Insert a wooden skewer in each hot dog, then dust the hot dogs with flour. Roll or dip them in the batter so that they're totally coated.
  2. Heat 1 inch of oil in a large wok or cast-iron skillet to about 375 degrees. Cook a couple of corn dogs at a time until they are lightly browned, turning them over, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain them on paper towels and repeat with the remaining hot dogs. Serve these with mustard for dipping.
This recipe yields 10 corn dogs.
