How to Make Corn Dogs


If you have never enjoyed a corn dog, then you may have no idea what a delicious treat you are missing out on. Traditionally, corn dogs are hot dogs served on a stick and covered in a corn meal batter. Instead of buying corn dogs from a carnival, you can make your own corn dogs at home.
