Corn Dog Recipe

Now that you have your own home deep fryer, you don’t need to wait until the county fair or carnival comes to town to get hand-dipped, crispy, golden corn dogs! Here is my go to recipe for perfect corn dogs made right at home.


  • 1/2 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-16 oz high quality all-beef hot dogs
  • 8 wooden skewers
  • oil for frying


  1. In a bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk.
  2. Preheat oil in deep fryer to 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit . Insert wooden skewers into hot dogs.
  3. Pour the batter into a mason jar at least the height of the hot dogs. Dip the hot dogs in batter until evenly coated.
  4. Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time, depending on fryer size, until lightly browned, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Drain on paper towels.


Pat the hot dogs dry using paper towels.

Make sure to use cold milk and eggs in the recipe and refrigerate the batter for 5-10 minutes before dipping hot dogs.
