Servings 6 servings


  • 10-12 Kosher hot dogs
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2+ cup yellow corn meal
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 3+ cups oil, for deep frying
  • 10-12 lollipops sticks the sticks can be submerged in the oil


  1. Heat 3 cups of oil in a very large skillet, or a very wide deep fryer. Temperature should reach 375 degrees before you start to fry the dogs. Insert a lollipop stick into each hot dog. Set aside.
  2. In a deep bowl mix the corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, water, egg and 2 tbsp, oil. Set aside and let this rest for about 5 minutes. Pour enough of the batter into a drinking glass that will cover the hot dog. Holding the stick, dip the hot dog into the glass. Refill with the batter mixture as you go along.
  3. Coat each hot dog with the corn meal mixture. Let extra batter drip off the dogs before frying. These sticks can be used in the frying method. This may have to be done in batches. The frying time is about 3-4 minutes. When hot dogs are golden in color remove and place on paper towels.
  4. Serve hot with french fries, vegetable of your choice and mustard and ketchup.
