Directions

  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 . Cut hot dogs into thirds. 2.Spray cup cake tins with non stick sprayor line with paper lined muffin cups. Scoop batter into the cups . Place 1/3 hot dog into each muffin. 3.Bake at 400 ° until golden brown. Serve right away.

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 worked fine with just using all-purpose flour. Everything else I left the same. I just wanted to use one package of hotdogs so I changed the yield to 8 and there was still a little batter left over. I ended up cutting the hotdogs into 4 pieces and skewering them with toothpicks. The batter was a little runny so I had to add about an extra 1/4 cup of flour to thicken it and I also dipped the hotdogs in flour before dipping them in the batter. that really helps the batter stick fairly well to the hotdogs. I will definitely make these again!!
