    Place sticks into bottoms of hot dogs. Coat the entire hot dog in the prepared batter by rotating the hot dog in the batter bowl.

    Cook the corn dogs in the fryer for approximately 5 minutes. Place the cooked corn dogs on a plate with paper towels to drain off the excess vegetable oil.

Tips and warnings

  • Provide containers of ketchup and mustard for dipping the corn dogs.
