Corn Dogs

my kids love corn dogs and are always wanting me to make them. so when i found this recipe from the Nate Berkus show I knew I had to try it!

1c Corn meal
1c all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1c buttermilk
1/4c honey
1 egg (beaten)
2lbs. your favorite hot dogs, turkeydogs, soydogs, or sausages
1/2c flour for dusting
3 qts peanut or vegetable oil for frying
wooden skewers
2c Shredded Cheddar cheese (optional)
Heat oil in fryer to 365 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients, except flour for dusting, with a whisk. In a 1 quart container combine buttermilk, honey, and egg. Transfer batter to a plate for easier dipping.
On a plate spread out flour. If using cheese, make a slit in the hot dog 2/3 of the way down, leaving a hinge and pack in 1-2 T of shredded cheese. press to seal the dog. Dry hot dogs and roll in flour. tap to remove excess flour making sure a light coating remains.
Insert skewer 1/3 into bottom of the hot dog and dip in batter glass, coating the hot dog completely with an even coating. Carefully drop into fryer and fry until a deep golden brown color is achieved. Turn the corn dog during cooking using tongs to brown both sides.
Remove to paper towels to absorb excess oil. Hold on a rack over a sheet pan in a 200 degree oven if you want to serve many at once. Eat 'em up!
