My boyfriend and I liked this recipe very much but we thought the beer batter should be a bit heavier/thicker so we were wondering if maybe we whipped the egg white's to much? They were pretty high peak's and the recipe states medium peak's. But regardless they were very very good. A little helpful hint; I used a wooden skewer to dip the hot dog's into the batter and then into the deep fat fryer and took them out the same way, it was much easier to coat the hot dog's and also in the removal from the oil. Thank's for the great recipe, we will definitley be doing this again.

Takes some time, but my roommates loved them! I made the batter the day before and it worked great. Thank you for the recipe.

These were great! The batter was nice and light. It was difficult to get the cheese and mustard stuffed inside, but the final product was delicious. (I used cheez whiz.) Thanks for the recipe!
