Easy 'Summer Days' Snack

Ah yes, Corn of those "I remember them from when I was a kid" type of foods. Super easy to make and perfect for a Summer snack.

1qt vegetable oil
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup whole milk
1 egg
4 jumbo hot dogs
4 wooden skewers

Mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix in the whole milk and egg and whisk together (mixture will be thick so not to worry)
Heat vegetable oil to 360 F.
Thread wooden skewers through hot dogs (I actually ended up cutting hot dogs in half so they can fit in my fryer) and roll in mixture until fully covered, immediately dip in hot oil for 4-5 minutes.
Enjoy with mustard and ketchup (BBQ sauce in my case)

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.




  1. OMG I used to LOVE these when I was younger. Who am I kidding I would love and devour them now if I could eat as freely as I would like, but my thighs will not thank me, but instead punish me. YUM YUM YUM!

  2. Why do so many of us recall eating these when we were younger? Sooo good!
