The original corn dogs, known as “Corny Dogs,” debuted in 1942 at the Texas State Fair. Tasty Root Beer Dogs are an update of a classic recipe. They get their tasty twist from root beer soda, which makes the batter lighter and more flavorful.
What You’ll Need:
2 cups pancake and baking mix
1 cup root beer soda
2 cups vegetable oil
8 hot dogs, cut into 1-1/2-inch chunks
What To Do:
1. In a large bowl, combine pancake and baking mix and soda; mix well.
2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil.
3. Dip hot dog chunks into batter, coating evenly, then place in skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden on all sides. Place on a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining hot dog chunks. Serve immediately.
