With the county fair in our rear-view mirror, I was feeling the need to fry up some comfort food and drown my sorrows at having missed it. (Okay, not really - I'm just stretching for a segue. None-the-less...)
And what better deep-fried goodness than the humble corn dog? Being in possession of a deep-fryer, I thought it would be great fun to make corn dogs with homemade batter. I selected a recipe, on trusty all-recipes, read the reviews for tips & tricks, then grabbed my camera to chronicle what was sure to be a stunning success.
Corn dogs wouldn't be corn dogs without cornmeal.
At this point, I had read some different ideas in the reviews as to how to make the batter stick on to the dogs best. I decided to try just dipping them in (as the original recipe calls for) as well as rolling some in flour first as some Allrecipe members had suggested.
and dipped the turkey frank in the cup of batter.
While they were frying, I assembled a small army of additional raw corn dogs.

This may be a good time to mention that I had no guests coming over to help me eat these, and my husband is not a fan of corn dogs either. But what else was I to do with so much batter!?
Ah... sweet success! I just can't wait to pick those up, dab them off, and consume them whole. (Well - maybe not the stick.)
Uh... wait a minute.
