We wanted something fun, fried, and quintessentially American to be the star of our 4th of July feast, and these really fit the bill. We used veggie dogs and omitted the bacon drippings, and made sure the dogs were at room temperature before dusting with corn starch and dipping in the batter. Pulling them out of the batter with a twisting motion worked beautifully to keep the batter on the dog. As soon as I put one in the deep fryer, my husband dove in with tongs and pulled them up from the bottom of the fryer by the stick so they wouldn't adhere to the fryer basket. We drained these on a rack over a paper towel lined pan, and kept them warm in a 200 degree oven until all were finished. We ate these with traditional yellow mustard slathered on with a brush, just like they did it at the local corn dog stand when I was a child. Hot, diggedy, corn dogs! These are just the BEST.
