A sausage that is cooked and then fried in batter?

It is one of the greatest things to eat while at a baseball game. It's basically a hotdog ono a stick covered with batter that is slightly fried.

See the "corn" bit threw me off, I though it was a corn on the cob dipped in something! Is it a specific type of sausage, if a hot dog then I would guess a wiener, or are there varieties? Is it an American invention or one they "borrowed"?

(My wife is watching The Bold and the Beautiful and they were eating corndogs hence my curiosity)

Well the "corn" part comes from the fact that the hot dog is traditionally dipped in cornbread batter before being deep fried. I've never seen anything other than the basic hot dog weiner used to make corndog's. In fact, the only variation I have seen is the use of chicken franks instead of pork/beef.

State Fair of Texas Corny Dogs! If you have never had one, you have never lived. They are exactly as DL021 described, and State Fair of Texas funnel cakes Smile

Of course if you're at the State Fair, you must try some of the other foods like the fried oreos, fried snickers bar, and my personal favorite, Ruth's Tamales.

Think it might be time for lunch #2 about now...

'I haven't had a corndog in years! Especially good with some Ketchup. I'm not a huge fan of funnel cake, seeing as it is so sweet, but a little I can do with. Basically they make funnel cake by letting cake batter drizzle into a large pot of frying oil. As the cake drips in, it becomes all "squiggly" and makes a mesh of fried bread. After the cake is fried, it is taken out and rolled in powdered sugar, making it really sweet. I think it's similar tasting to French begnets (sp?) Rarely do you see funnel cakes outside of state fairs and amusement parks.

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of grilled salmon (pass the garlic butter once you're done with it), but I'll share the rissoto with you. What are we drinking?

AS you well know I'm a man of varied and well bred tastes, as far as the palate goes, and I'm fully capable of reining in the snob in me so I can enjoy the incredibly delicious concoctions presented at carnivals and fairs. I'll lay odds you'll be right there with me the next time we're both somewhere they serve both of those culinary delights. Leanne would like the corndogs and funnel cakes...we'll see about this next meetup.

Similar tasting only because of the grease and the powdered confectioners sugar. They are different types of pastry. Both delicious.

State fairs and Corndogs go hand in hand. If there is anything that might convince me of intelligent design of the universe, it's the fact that you can't go five yards without bumping into a corndog stand at the fair.

Agreed, and ain't it grand! Once a year, put all pretense aside, head to the fair, eat stuff you wouldn't be caught dead ordering the rest of the year, then go puke it out on the rides. Ah bliss . . .

I am just begging for a Sonic Burger in my area.

They exist in Southern Virginia, but Northern Virginia...no, even though
there is a huge population base here.
Some of my colleagues and I went to their website to find the closest
location to us, and it's about 2 hours away.  Sad
Even the closest Cracker Barrel restaurant is a good hour's drive from
us. We've got the interstate freeways (as congested and crappy as
they may be), but no place to "stop and smell the biscuits."

Although growing up in Southern California, I was lucky to have
In-N-Out Burgers (which is great, too); they just don't have the
selection of Sonics that I love so much.

But regarding corn dogs, just the smell of that cornmeal batter cooking
makes my mouth water; but I have to eat them with mustard.
I know some people use ketchup, but that's too sweet for me.

It is a hot dog, not a sausage, that would be far too pricy, dipped in corn batter and put on a stick. AKA a Pogo.

Then there's the foot-long corn dog.   



The Minnesota state fair is famously known for "anything on a stick." There's the chocolate-covered frozen banana on a stick. And the pork chop on a stick. Steak on a stick. Battered-fried mozerella on a stick. Key Lime pie on a stick. And batter-fried frozen Twinkie on a stick.

I am not sure if its the same reason, but about 10-12 years ago here in the Richmond area we had quite a few Sonics. The guy who owned them passed away, and his wife, having no business training at all, closed them down. For some reason she didn't sell the franchise rights to the territory. If they had territory rights in NOVA, that might be the reason why they don't have them there. I sure do miss the Rt. 44 Cherry Limeade.
