One hot summer day in 1946 Dave Barham was inspired to dip a hot dog into his mothers cornbread batter, then deep fry it to a golden brown. Dave soon found a quaint Santa Monica, California location near the beach to sell his new creation with mustard on the side and a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. Be sure you find the shorter turkey hot dogs, not "bun-length". In this case size does matter. Snag some of the disposable wood chopsticks from a local Chinese or Japanese restaurant next time you're there and start dipping.

Love this recipe. I minced 1 small Jalapino pepper and added it to the batter. Also took an injector and filled hotdog with melted cheese before coating with batter.
YUMMY!!!

Recipe is on spot.However, if you want to kick it up a notch for real flavor use a full-flavored dog like Hebrew National. All meat, all flavor !
What's up with the turkey dog?

I remember Dog on a Stick first using Oscar Meyer dogs, back in 1976. We no longer have one here, so maybe they changed. They used either the original or the all beer.

Roll the dog in flour to help the batter stick. Fill a tall glass with the batter to dip the dog.

Not too bad a recipe! I come from the city of the "Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth"...The Calgary Stampede and we know Corn Dog's...this batter was good but lacked the "crunch" I'm used to. I hope Todd can "manipulate" this one to be more crunchy versus soft. But it's a close second! BUY THIS RECIPE!

I have tried for a long time to duplicate the hotdog on a stick recipe and this is it. It's the best!

I've always loved corn dogs, but here in my country we dont have them. I loved the recipe, so good and easy to do!

It's good, just be sure the temp. is 375...or most of the batter will fall off during frying...let the batter resttoo for a while..the taste is very good, did it twice!

This is a really good recipe only it would work so much better if I had a deeper pan to cook them in.
