Roorda Electric Iowa Corn Dogs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Iowahorse

Some of the best ever. Fantastic with spicy mustard. Starlog: June 3 2016: After a few questions lately, I'd like to point one thing out. If you want a quality corndog, buy a quality hot dog to build your base. Get the brand and style YOU like. Those under a dollar a pkg brands like BarS and even Oscar M's cheap ones will not give you a proper corn dog. Well, unless you like those of course, then by all means go for it.

Middle of November and I was craving "Carnival food," I doubled the recipe, but I had no skewers or dry mustard. These came out great anyway. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will add the dry mustard.
