"The best way to describe this snack is to say that they are the Aussie version of corn dogs."

  1. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 370 degrees F (185 degrees C). Soak the wooden sticks in water so they will not burn easily.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, self-rising flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and add the egg, buttermilk and lard. Stir until smooth, then set aside to rest briefly.
  3. While the batter is resting, insert a stick up into the center of each hot dog to use as a handle. Pat hot dogs dry with a paper towel to help the batter stick.
  4. Dip each hot dog into the batter and allow the excess to drip off. If the batter is not sticking, roll the hot dogs in a little bit of flour first. Fry a few at a time in the hot oil until golden brown and heated through, 5 to 6 minutes. If your hot dogs are very brown on the outside, and cold on the inside, your oil is too hot. Adjust temperature if needed.

The crust was really good! You have to keep turning or they burn easily. Thanks for the interesting lunch!

these are so good! I chose to make them a little healthier. I baked them in the oven. Heres what I did: 1.mix everything expect oil, wood stick, and hotdogs (use only 8 hotdogs) . Follow step2...

these snacks are really good. they are easy to make and they taste incredible. try it out, you wont be able to stop eating them. what do you have to lose?

These were quite good! I'm not a fan of cornbread so I was looking for a battered hotdog recipe that didn't have the corn bread batter. For this, I didn't have any self rising flour, but it work...

If you are wondering what Pluto Dogs taste like, I can describe it in Texas is a fried kolache , that looks like a corn dog.

these came out great.Daughter and husband both really liked them. I used Lil Smokies and made mini dogs.
