How To Make carnival corn dogs

  • 1
    In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, yellow corn meal, granulated sugar, baking powder and ground sea salt; whisk until well blended. Add beaten egg, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika and buttermilk. Whisk very well until smooth and no lumps. Transfer into a tall glass or container; sit for 30 minutes.

    Meantime, skew sausage and pat dry. Place flour in a fine sieve and dust over the dogs. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside. Pour oil in a tall pot such as an asparagus one. Heat over medium-high heat until thermometer reads 350ºF.
  • 3
    Dip dog in batter and let excess drip off. Quickly place in the hot oil and hold it for 15 seconds or so to prevent from sticking to the bottom. Cook for 5 minutes or until golden. Transfer on paper towel to remove any excess oil.
