      My "go-to" recipe for corn dogs... Definitely not the over-processed corn dog of questionable provenance you can by in 100 packs at any big-box mart (soooo much better). With the leftover batter, thicken it up with some more corn meal, add a bit of grated onion and you've got some respectable hushpuppies!

      I thought they were alright. A bit thin. not chewy enough as a real corn dog should be. But still tasty.
