  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in melted bacon drippings. Make a well in the center, and pour in the egg, buttermilk, and baking soda. Mix until everything is smooth and well blended.
  3. Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels so that the batter will stick. Insert wooden sticks into the ends. Dip the hot dogs in the batter one at a time, shaking off the excess. Deep fry a few at a time in the hot oil until they are as brown as you like them. Drain on paper towels or serve on paper plates.

I was't very impressed. Fairly easy to prepare, used the flour on the dogs trick, suggested by others. Didn't really taste like fair corn dogs......

I love this recipe. I had to make additional batter, about 2 1/2 times the original amount (we like a good coating). I also dipped the raw hot dog in flour before dipping it into the batter, whi...

Better late than never!!! I'm soon to be 75 years old and have made enough corn dogs in my time to supply the Super Bowl. Finally!! The best tasting batter I have EVER made. It has to be the...

when I wrote this recipe it was to cut up the hot dogs into thirds. My deep fryer is too small to put sticks into the dogs. I guess they can change directions.

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 mad...

A great corndog recipe. We also cut the hotdogs up and cooked them in the batter. Anyone out there know how to keep the batter on the hot dogs?

This was a great recipe. Was perfect for family movie night and the kids and hubby were asking when we were having it again before they were even done! One suggestion though. Dust the hot dogs i...

Awesome taste! We buy these at the grocery store, but they are so expensive I looked here for an alternative. I used the batter to make onion rings as well which turned out very crispy and tas...
