Helpful Equipment:


Huge quarter pound hot dogs battered in a beer/corn batter and fried. Crunchy and delicious!


4 quarter pound beef hot dogs
1 1/2 Cups corn meal
2/3 Cups all-purpose flour, plus a big extra for coating dogs
1 12 ounce beer
1 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon paprika
1 Teaspoon red pepper flakes (opt)
1 large egg
1 big pinch of salt and pepper
Oil for frying, probably two quarts


1) Mix dry ingredients for batter in a large bowl.  Stir in egg and beer and combine well.

2) Dust corn dogs in flour and knock off any extra flour.  A light dusting of flour will help the batter stick.

3) Prepare fry station and heat oil to 350 degrees.

4) Pour batter into a tall glass for easy dipping.

5) Dip dog in and make sure it’s coated evenly.  Move it straight to the fryer.

6) Fry for 5-7 minutes until corn dog is golden brown.

7) Let drain for a few minutes on a towel, insert stick in one end, and serve with mustard, ketchup, and/or ranch.
