One hot summer day in 1946 Dave Barham was inspired to dip a hot dog into his mother's cornbread batter, then deep fry it to a golden brown. Dave soon found a quaint Santa Monica, California location near the beach to sell his new creation with mustard on the side and a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. Be sure you find the shorter turkey hot dogs. In this Hot Dog on a Stick recipe size does matter. Snag some of the disposable wood chopsticks from a local Chinese or Japanese restaurant next time you're there and start dipping.

Update 5/3/17: If your hot dogs are browning too fast, turn the temperature of the oil down to 350 degrees. And rather than using chopsticks, thick round skewer sticks (corn dog skewers) found in houseware stores and online will work much better.

Someone suggested to use half the flour and half the corn meal, DON’T! The recipe is perfect just the way it is! I’ve been craving these but not the price of them so this was perfect! I used foster farms turkey dogs and it was delicious! Very true to hot dog on a stick!

Yummy! But I would use half flour, half corn meal next time.
