  • 8-10 hot dogs, room temperature
  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 2 Tbsp. white cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 6 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk


Make sure the hot dogs are at room temperature. In a large bowl, stir together the Bisquick, cornmeal, dry mustard, paprika, and red pepper. Stir in the egg and milk until well blended. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes.

Into a large saucepan, pour enough oil to come to a depth of about 2 inches. Heat over medium high heat until the oil registers 370 degrees F on a deep fat frying thermometer. Dip a hot dog into the batter to thoroughly coat. Then with tongs, slip the dog into the hot oil; do 2 dogs at a time, no more. More than 2 will lower the temperature of the cooking oil.

Cook the dogs, turning with a metal slotted spoon, until browned all over, 2-3 minutes. Remove the dogs to paper towels to drain. Repeat with the remaining dogs. Stick a wooden skewer or Popsicle stick in one end of each dog.

You might try searching under wrapped corn dogs. That uses a yeast dough. I always loved the ones they served in the school cafeteria when I was growing up.

Back in the 60s there was a place called Dairy Pride that had hot dogs on a stick. It was in Mexico, Missouri. I don't think there was only cornmeal in the recipe. I cannot find the recipe or one similar.

I've been looking for a recipe for homemade corn dogs. Not a casserole, but the actual thing. Does anyone have one? Thank you.

Corn Dog Recipe

This 1 has served me well. I like using it with little Smokey's as well as hot dogs.


Beat well. Dip frankfurters in mixture and fry in very hot deep fat. This amount of batter will do 1 pound of frankfurters.

Corn Dog Recipe

Here is one I have in my many files:


In a large bowl combine the milk, eggs, oil, sugar, and salt. Mix it very well. Sprinkle in the baking powder, corn meal, and flour. Stir it all up to make a slightly thick batter.

Take your hot dogs and dry them off on paper towels. Dust the hot dogs with flour, coating them completely. The cornmeal batter won't stick to the hot dogs unless they are coated in flour. The batter just slides right off of the wieners naturally slick outsides. Shove Popsicle sticks into the flour coated hot dogs. Set the hot dogs aside.

While all of this is going on, it's a good idea to get your hot fat to heating up. You want the temperature to be about 375 degrees. Allow the fat to preheat so it is almost smoking by the time you are ready to add the corn dogs. (02/06/2009)
