How to Make Corn Dogs

Make corn dogs just like the ones at the county fair by following these simple steps.


  • Step 1: Heat oil Heat the oil in a deep saucepan to 365 degrees.
  • Step 2: Combine ingredients Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients until the mixture is smooth; then transfer some of it to a tall glass or mason jar.
  • Step 3: Insert skewers Insert the wooden skewers into the ends of the hot dogs.
  • TIP: Dry the hot dogs with paper towels so the batter will stick.
  • Step 4: Dip the hot dogs Dip the hot dogs in the batter in the glass or jar, shaking off the excess. Refill the glass as you go.
  • Step 5: Fry hot dogs Deep-fry two to three hot dogs at a time until they are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove them with tongs and place them on paper towels to drain. Serve them warm, but don't eat too many before you go on the rides.
  • FACT: According to Guinness World Records, as of 2008, the longest hot dog on record was 375 feet.
