State Fair Corn Dogs

There's nothing like fair food, and these fair corn dogs have all the deep-fried bliss that you remember, but with all the comfort of your air-conditioned kitchen. We went ahead and added relish and mustard to the batter, so you don't need to worry about dipping these dogs.

Ingredients

HEAT:

COMBINE:

WHISK:

If you're not a fan of relish, skip it, but add a few extra tablespoons of buttermilk to the batter in its place.

Instructions

Heat oil in a 7–8-qt. pot over medium-high to 375°.

Combine buttermilk, eggs, relish, mustard, and Tabasco in a bowl.

Whisk together flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Stir buttermilk mixture into cornmeal mixture to combine; let stand 3 minutes. (The mixture will be thick.) Whisk mixture until smooth again; transfer to a tall measuring cup.

Halve hot dogs crosswise. Insert popsicle sticks into cut ends of hot dogs. Dip dogs into batter, coating entirely. Fry dogs in batches of four until golden, 5–7 minutes; drain on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet.

A tall measuring cup allows you to easily coat each hot dog in batter. It's the perfect vessel for dunking.
