Take your bun length hotdogs...
|I used to have buy the special Angus beef with no nitrates, but Oscar Mayer recently changed all their dogs to nitrate free!|
|Bun length dogs cut in half make the perfect length for min dogs|
I had bamboo skewers on hand that I cut in half, but you can also use lollypop sticks or chopsticks. Push each half of the hotdog far up each stick.

In a bowl mix the corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
Add the beaten egg, honey, buttermilk (2 tsp of vinegar to 3/4 cup of milk and let it sit for 5 minutes before adding), and vegetable oil.
Whisk together with the dry ingredients to make a thick batter.
|Corn dog batter has a great smell to it!|
Pour the batter into a tall cup

Let them dry off on a paper towel to help wick off the extra oil
|We were seriously impressed at this point.|

Soon we had a big ol' pile of golden Krusty Pups to behold.
