THE CORN DOG AMERICA'S BATTERED WEINER

The corn dog, that battered coated wiener that's deep fried golden served usually with a stick shoved in one end. Hot Dog On A Stick franchises very popular, their gimmick was selling fresh lemonade, and french fries. Corn Dog, just the sound of it makes you think…county fair, amusement park, fund raisers, birthday parties with clowns, clowns who were ex-fellons or something looking to make a buck.

Anyhow corn dog, do I love this meal? Of course I do, but the hot dog that's battered needs to be a very tasty dog, Nathan's comes to mind, or like a reddish Redondo's or something like that. And the batter? Who can really screw that one up?

So here I go again, using my MacBook Pro looking at Google's Images for corn dog pics, as I eat my Supreme Pizza at Barnes and Noble.

AN EASY HOMEMADE CORN DOG RECIPE

OK, now it's time for all of you to try and make your own corn dogs, you can use any sausage, try a battered Italian sausage, or some battered chorizos or something, whatever you like.

COMMON OILS USED FOR DEEP FRYING

Whenever you start to deep fry anything especially coated or battered foods, it's a good idea to have a deep enough frying pan or a pot pertinent for the size of foods you are frying. To deep fry corn dogs at home, using a 12" stainless steel braising pan is good, make sure you have enough oil so that the corn dogs will be fried golden all around, if not you may need to use tongs to turn them over after a few minutes. Also don't be disappointed if your dogs comes out uneven, without industry equipment you'll never get that perfect looking dog. You can purchase wooden skewers to stick inside your dogs.

Vegetable Oil- easily available in all supermarkets, a combination of different oils from different vegetables, this oil is good for deep frying it has a rather high smoke point (the temperature at maximum heat when oil starts to smoke). 

Deep frying temperatures should be maintained around 325 to 400 degrees F. Vegetable oil fits the bill. Other oils you can use with success is Canola & Corn.

To save your used oil, cool in completely, and strain it through a fine mesh funnel, or use some coffee filters over a bowl. And always label the oil, like "USED FOR CONR DOGS" and store it in a cool dry place. If you won't use it in a week, you'll have to dump it, it will turn ugly.

BASIC BATTER
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup corn meal
1 egg
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
Milk to thin out use sparingly until you get a nice batter.

You can mix by hand or use a food processor, whatever twirls your beanie girlfriend.

Alright- keep on dogging it!
