Betty's Proto Pups (Corn Dogs)

"This recipe was published in the Memphis Commercial Appeal back in the mid 1970's. At the time, this recipe was used to make the Pronto Pups at the Mid South Fair in Memphis. My children love it when I make these. They taste just like the ones you pay $3.00 for at the fair!"

  1. These corn dogs are so delicious and easy to make.I've always used 1 cup of cornmeal and 1 cup flour and I leave the pepper out.I refrigerate my batter for a few hours before using it and if it seems too thick I'll thin it with a little more milk. I like to flour the hot dogs first and then cut them in half and make mini dogs.These remind me of the corn dogs I get from the fair and they are even good the next day reheated in the oven.
     
  2. I just made these and they are delicious. Just like the ones I used to get at the Mid-South Fair!!
     
  3. Great recipe! Easy, quick and fun! I replaced the milk with an equal amount of water to make them dairy-free. They were perfect and mixed up in a few minutes. I didn't need to refrigerate the batter or thin or thicken it at all. I had extra batter left over and no more hot dogs so I dropped them by spoonfuls into the hot oil and fried on both sides. We called them corn puppies and enjoyed them with the corn dogs!

<p>I'm a stay at home mother of three. 7th, 8th &amp; 11th grade. I left my corporate career&nbsp;4 years ago and have LOVED being a full time homemaker. In 2004 I finished formal training in Massage Therapy and became licensed.&nbsp; I now have my own MT practice, which I work part-time.&nbsp; I founded The Lindsey Group which is comprised of other independent therapists in my area.&nbsp; We share office space which makes it possible for all of us to be self-employed without financial burdon of monthly office lease.&nbsp; My favorite things to do are cooking and gardening. Healthy diet habits are my passion and many of my recipes are in that category. But I collect and use a lot of long time favorites from my family and my church too. My family's favorites are Caribbean Chicken with Pineapple Salsa, Mexican Lasagna, and Chicken Pot Pie. When soccer keeps me from the kitchen, my family loves it when I mix up Rice and Beans Burritos, wrap them in foil and stowe them in a cooler (no ice). We enjoy them at the soccer games. Our family favorite comfort food is Saulisbury Steak, mashed potatoes and green beans (not quite in the healthy category). That's a Southern meal in anyone's book! For good nutrition, I supplement with Pure Liquid Herbs. If you have any questions about how nutritional herbs can improve your health, I'll be glad to answer you. Just send me a Zaar note. <br /><br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt= /></p>
