These are great! I made them yesterday for my corn dog obsessed son, and he loved them. The batter is nice and thick and really stays on nicely in the fryer. These are way better than the boxed kind. The only change I made was to use regular skim milk, that's all I had, and I used organic beef hot dogs. Thanks for sharing.

I made these tonight for two twelve-year-old boys, my husband and myself. They had never had homemade corn dogs before and my husband was apprehensive. They gobbled them up and all three of them remarked on how good they were. Thanks for a great recipe that I'll be using over and over.

These were great! I normally make Alton Brown's corndogs. While they're delicious, the batter NEVER sticks to my hot dogs properly, and they're very messy looking. I made kitten's recipe, and they're so perfectly battered, they look like store bought! The flavor is excellent. The only substitution I made was that I used buttermilk instead of evaporated milk. (I had some to use before it went out of date.) Perfect!! I would have taken a picture, but we ate them all before I had a chance. :D

Just like I remember getting at the State Fair! I also had to add some milk (about 1/2-3/4 Cup) to the batter. I borrowed a dipping method from Alton Brown: filling a tall glass with batter, I dipped each skewered hotdog up to the point where hotdog meets stick, then gave it a swirl to cover. Upon pulling corndog from batter I gently wiped off the excess, and laid into the hot oil. Worked great! Oh, I also used a wok; its wide open enough to allow you to lay each corndog in completely. This recipe was definitely a home-run!!

Great recipe! Easy and very tasty! I had to add more milk to make the batter thin enough to coat the sausages. Also, I used polish sausages for this. I don't have a good pot for deep frying, so I fried them in a 1/2 inch of oil in a deep frying pan. As a result, the skewers didn't fit well and I ended up making them without the skewers, but it worked just fine and they tasted great.

These turned out great. I used a tall Tupperware container and dunked them. They came out perfectly round looking like store bought corn dogs. Next time I'll use a little more cornmeal and a little less flour.

Loved your recipe! I did make a couple of changes. I used buttermilk, since I had some to use up, and used cayenne instead of paprika...otherwise the same and came out good...also have to make sure dogs are very dry and Alton Browns hint of rolling in cornstarch first before dipping in batter might help to make the batter stick. I am Armenian and love the Greek and Middle Eastern stuff too!

These were great and so easy to put together...although I must say there was no way i could roll the dogs in the batter! LOL! I ended up patting it out on the palm of my hand and then wrapping the dog. I used milk on my fingers to smooth it out. I also cut the hot dogs in half and made them mini dogs since they were for a 4 year old! He loved them!!! Thanks!
