Yield: 10 servings
|1½ cup||Corn meal|
|1 teaspoon||Baking powder|
|Dash of salt|
|2 tablespoons||Louisiana Hot Sauce|
|1 pack||Hot Dogs (or for a real heart-stopper, polish sausage -- Hy-Grades makes a "hot" variety that will "kick butt & take down names!")|
Combine all ingredients to form a batter. If too thick add a little more milk. Dip hot dogs in batter and drop them into hot oil. Fry to golden brown.
This was based on a recipe in out family cookbook with this added to it:
These are like the corn dogs sold at county fairs. The "Cozy Dog" drive in is a landmark in Springfield, Illinois. They specialize in these, and it is sometimes rumored that Uncle Bob knew the owner and got his recipe.
I added the hot sauce and readjusted some quantities.
Serve with mustard.
