This is one of my son's favorite (he's 30 years old). He can eat 10 in one sitting dipping them in mustard. Whenever he decides to come over, he always requests them.
1/3 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 beaten egg
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 pound hot dogs (I use Sabrett's or Boar's Head)
Flour for dredging the hot dogs
Oil for frying
Heat the oil to 375 degrees F.
Combine dry ingredients. Add egg, oil, milk and mustard. Mixing well.
Insert wooden skewers (or new Popsicle sticks) lengthwise into hot dogs. Coat with flour, then dip into batter, coating well.
Fry in deep hot oil for 2-3 minutes or till golden brown. Drain on paper towels to absorb any oil. Keep in a warm oven until you use up all of the hot dogs.
Serve with mustard and enjoy!
