CARNIVAL AND FAIR STYLE CORN DOGS ON A STICK
A county fair, state fair or carnival would not be the same without the ever popular "Corn Dog". That slightly greasy, hot to the bite, and sinfully delicious weiner, covered with cornmeal batter and deep fried in who knows what to the delight of kids and old folks alike is what makes a day at the fair.
I know, I get a hankering for them once in a while when there is no place to get them. Every once in awhile it just jogs the mind that those pleasant Autumn evenings and your fist wrapped around a corn dog is just what you need to take the chill off of a Winter evening. Go ahead, reminisce while you make yourself and the family "CORN DOGS"!
RECIPE PRINTED FROM: THEGUTSYGOURMET.NET©
INGREDIENTS: Makes 20
• 1 quart oil for deep frying
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• ⅔ cup yellow cornmeal
• ¼cup white sugar
• 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons bacon drippings
• 1 egg, beaten
• 1¼ cups buttermilk
• ½ teaspoon baking soda
• 2 pounds hot dogs
• wooden sticks**SEE COOK'S NOTES**
1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365ºF degrees (185ºC degrees).
2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in melted
bacon drippings. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg, buttermilk, and baking soda. Mix
until everything is smooth and well blended.
3. Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels so that the batter will stick. Insert wooden sticks into the
ends. Dip the hot dogs in the batter one at a time, shaking off the excess. Deep fry a few at a time
in the hot oil until they are as brown as you like them. Drain on paper towels or serve on paper
You can purchase wooden popsicle sticks in most good supermarkets, or use a heavy wooden skewer.
They are usually pretty long, so you might want to break them in half. You can also buy flat wooden
popsicle sticks in art, craft or hobby stores.
