I was sick over the 4th of July holiday and missed out on all the good Fair foods. One of my favorites are corndogs. We normally have a box in the freezer, but right now we're out. They really aren't that hard to make and actually take much better than the frozen ones.

I'm going to be searching my recipe box for other Fair food recipes. The County Fair season is among us and if you don't want to venture out in the hot weather, why not make your favorites at home. Check back each week for a new recipe.


2/3 C. cornmeal
1 C. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
2 T. sugar
3/4 C. milk
2 T. vegetable oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 lb. pkg hot dogs
popsicle sticks

Mix all the dry ingredients together, add milk, oil, and egg. Mix well. Dry the hot dogs and insert stick. Dip into the batter. Cook the corndogs in hot oil (365° f.) until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel. Serve with mustard or and sauce of your choosing.

Oh, Carol, I *love* corndogs! Haven't had any in such a long time.... We're off meat and way off deep-fried foods. I'll just have to hit a Fair sometime. Maybe in Canada, so it's not so hot.
