Corn Dogs

17 Jul

I think I’ve discovered a new species of fly. I call it: the Hydra-House Fly. I swear, for every fly I swat, three more take its place. Where are they coming from?!!!!

Flies are, unfortunately, a part of summer. Especially in my house, where it is (apparently) physically impossible to close the door behind you. That’s the bad part of summer. The good part? Sunshine, swimming, picnics…corn dogs. This recipe comes from my Grandma. The batter makes for a lighter corn bread that is airy and crispy and all around uber-tasty.

Ingredients:

2 – 1 lb pkgs hot dogs

20 skewers

1 cup flour

3/4 cup cornmeal

2 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp dry mustard

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 Tbsp shortening

1 cup milk

1 beaten egg

Mix dry ingredients. Cut in shortening. Add milk and ddd. Stir to remove lumps. Skewer hot dogs and dip into batter. *Tip* Fill a drinking glass with the batter and dip the hot dogs down into the cup for better coverage. The batter will also adhere best if hot dogs are completely dry.

Fry in oil until golden brown – about 2 minutes.

When I asked my sisters to send me their recipes they asked for photo guidelines. I said, “Just don’t make it look like a pile of mush.” And then I got this…a pile of mush. 🙂 At least it’s a pile of mush that tastes good!
