How to Make Corn Dogs: Chinese Year of the Dog
So, for Chinese New Year on the 16th, I've got this great homemade corn dog recipe.  It's easy to make at home and fun for the kids.  I do this about once a year or less.  Is it too morbid that we are enjoying corn dogs for the year of the dog?
Let's get started!
Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl...stir together with a fork.  Then add the buttermilk and egg, stir together until blended.  Take the little smokies and rub them down with some cornstarch or baking soda so they are completely dry and ready to dip.  Heat oil in a frying pan to 365* F.
Corndog Recipe:
1 Cup Cornmeal
1 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Baking Soda
1 Cup Buttermilk
(or 1 Cup Milk with 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar)
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Pepper
1 egg

Little Smoked Sausages (or 8 full size hot dogs)
Oil and Frying pan
Wooden Skewers
 I cut the skewers in half, because the little smokies are short.
 Dip them one at a time in the corn batter.  Shake off any excess.  It is very thick batter, but won't cook all the way through if there is too big of a layer.
 Hold the stick and roll the corn dog in the frying oil.  By rolling it around, it keeps the dough on the dog while cooking it, instead of falling off in the pan.
 Then drop in the oil and turn over quickly.  They cook pretty fast...but if the oil is too hot they will not cook inside.  So keep it at 365.  Then remove and set on a paper towel covered plate and let the excess oil drain off.
 Serve right after frying with yummy dipping sauces!  Fried corn dogs do not save or store well.
 Enjoy the new year, the Year of the Dog!
