Homemade Corn Dogs

If you like corn dogs you are going to love this recipe. Not only are these corn dogs delicious they aren’t as intimidating to make as you might think.
The batter is easy to make and comes together quickly. I think the batter is what makes the corn dogs so special and the batter is what makes the corn dogs taste exactly like the corn dogs your get at the fair. Homemade Corn Dogs are best served with ketchup and mustard on the day they’re made.

Carnival Classic

Corn Dogs are a carnival and fair classic. Who hasn’t had a corn dog at the carnival, state fair or at the ball park. Funnel Cakes might be considered the
“Queen of the Fair” but Corn Dogs are considered the “King of the Fair.” Adults and kids of all ages love corn dogs. Just as baseball games and hot dogs go together, corn dogs and state or county fairs go together.

Popular Fair Foods

Not only are Funnel Cakes and Corn Dogs a hit at the fair so is just about anything and everything that is served on a stick. Every state fair has its own specialties….here is a short list of some fair food “On-a-Stick” served at the Wisconsin State Fair. Bacon brats, chocolate crullers On-a-Stick, deep-fried cheesecake, deep-fried pretzel-crusted brownies and Door County cherry pie on-a-stick, to name just a few.
