It's a pretty runny batter that couldn't stick to the hot dogs. Sorry I don't know if it's something I did wrong, but this just not did not work for me.

These bring back good memories for me. I used to love to go to the bowling alley when I was small to watch my parents. The fry cook there used to make them for the kids and my mother would make these for me when I was home sick from school.
