On a Stick by Matt Armendariz and Corn Dog Recipe

This book is awesome!  It has so many recipes that I want to try.  I did make the Corn Dogs and sharing the recipe below.  The other things I want to try, (not in any order) are, Deep Fried Ravioli, Breakfast Pancake Dogs, Chicken and Waffles, Deep Fried Mac 'n' Cheese, Fish and Chips, Fried Mozzarella, Fried Pickles, Moletes, and the last one I will mention is called 'Son in Law Eggs' and hmm you woulf need to see the picture, but they look like a male private part!  These are just a few of the ones that look good to me, but there are many more  even dessert on a stick such as Frozen Elvis and S'mores!

Here are my corndogs!  Though not as pretty as the ones in the book, they were delicious!

Corn Dogs
4 wooden skewers
1 qt vegetable oil(i used sunflower oil)
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2TBS sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup whole  milk
1 egg
4 jumbo hot dogs(I used Ballpark Angus low fat)
ketchup and yellow mustard for dipping

Preheat oil in a large, heavy pot over medium high heat.
Mix flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper in a bowl.  Stir in milk and egg and whisk gently until combined.  Once oil reaches 360 degrees, thread hot dogs onto skewers.  Dip each in batter, rolling until fully coated, and quickly drop entire stick into oil.  Fry 2 at a time for 4-5 minutes.  Drain on paper towels .  Repeat for remaining corn dogs.  Serve warm, accompanied by ketchu[ and mustard.

You can use all types of sticks and this photo shows a few ideas.
