  • 1 pound hot dogs
  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 8-10 wooden skewers


  • Bring 3 cups of water to boiling in a large saucepan. Add hot dogs and bring back to boiling. Remove from heat; cover 20 minutes. Pour enough oil to a 2-inch depth in a skillet the and heat to 350 degrees. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium-size bowl and blend with a fork.
  •  Add shortening and cut in with a fork until the size of small peas. Combine milk and egg in a 1 cup measure. Stir into flour-cornmeal mixture. Pour mixture into a tall glass. Remove hot dogs from water and dry with paper towels. Insert a skewer into the hot dog, and be sure to leave about 1 inch for the handle. Dip hot dog into batter; let excess batter drip into the glass. Drop into hot fat fry 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
