    COUNTY FAIR CORN DOGS

    Posted by BETTYBOOP50 at recipegoldmine.com

    This is one of my son's favorite (he's 30 years old). He can eat 10 in one sitting dipping them in mustard. Whenever he decides to come over, he always requests them.

    1/3 cup cornmeal
    2/3 cup flour
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 beaten egg
    2 tablespoons oil
    1/2 cup milk
    1 tablespoon prepared mustard
    1 pound hot dogs (I use Sabrett's or Boar's Head)
    Flour for dredging the hot dogs
    Oil for frying

    Heat the oil to 375 degrees F.

    Combine dry ingredients. Add egg, oil, milk and mustard. Mixing well.

    Insert wooden skewers (or new Popsicle sticks) lengthwise into hot dogs. Coat with flour, then dip into batter, coating well.

    Fry in deep hot oil for 2-3 minutes or till golden brown. Drain on paper towels to absorb any oil. Keep in a warm oven until you use up all of the hot dogs.

    Serve with mustard and enjoy!

    history of the corndog from good eats with elton brown:

    Okay, so it wasn't actually a carnival. It was a fair. A state fair. The Texas State Fair. It was 1942 when Neil and Carl Fletcher, brothers who were vaudevillians turned concessionaries, had a real "2001" monkey-touch-the-monolith moment, and dipped a dog into batter, into the fryer. Now, although that may be the first dipped dog on record, there is evidence to support the argument that the corndog is much older. It could be that German sausage makers invented it when they moved to San Antonio, Texas, around the turn of the century, maybe even the late 1800s.
    Personally, I could care less who invented this thing. I'm just thankful they did. Can you make them at home? Oh yeah, with a little know-how and the right technology. And I don't mean a Ferris wheel.

    Forget the refrigerated corndogs in the store. Fairs and carnivals are where to get a decent corndog.

    And corndogs have never been sold in Tiger Stadium. Someone is pulling those Barner's legs.
