Carnival Food.....The Corn Dog

I told my kids we would have a carnival dinner for fun one night. So I decided on corn dogs and a Sundae Bar.  Let me just start off by saying I rarely ever deep fry food! Super unhealthy but if I only do this once a year with the kids then I can splurge a little.

As it turned out the corn dogs were very delicious but heavy on the stomach and I decided to save their sundae bar for another time. Pics will follow when I have this desert sometime soon.

[recipe title="Corn Dogs" servings="6-8" time="1hr" difficulty="easy"]


  • 3/4 cup of corn meal
  • 1 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 4 tsp of baking powder
  •  1/4 cup of sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • hotdogs on a stick (I used wooden skewers I had for the barbecue)
  • cooking oil


Mix all ingredients together and skewer your hotdogs on a stick. I poured the batter in a tall cup so I can dip the dogs in easily and they get all covered with batter easily.  I placed enough vegetable oil to go up the side of the dutch oven aproximately 2 inches.Preheat oil to 375 degrees F. Gently lay the corn dog in the oil and rotate after 10 seconds so the batter adheres perfectly in thickness on all sides then allow to turn golden brown on all sides. I just kept rotating them.

Cool on paper towel for few minutes, serve with your favorite condiments :)
