Yields: 8 Corn Dogs


  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2/3 tsp salt
  • peanut oil
  • 10-inch wooden skewers


  1. In a mixing bowl combine the baking powder, flour, cornmeal, and salt. Form a well in the center of this dry mixture. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl beat the eggs, and stir in the half-and-half. Pour this egg mixture into the well of your dry mixture. Stir just until evenly moist.
  3. In your turkey fryer preheat peanut oil to 375 degrees F. Use enough oil to cover all of the corn dogs.
  4. Insert a 10-inch wooden skewer through one end of each hot dog. Dip the hot dogs into the batter, and roll them to coat each dog evenly.
  5. Fry the corn dogs in the hot oil for about 3 minutes (or until golden). Remove the corn dogs from the turkey fryer, and drain them on a wire rack.
