Hear ye, hear ye! Here's something to bring back memories of the county fair. Use 10 wooden skewers for the franks, and dip away!
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 10 beef frankfurters
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for dusting
- 2/3 cup cornmeal
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons corn flour (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch ground cayenne pepper
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons corn oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
Insert skewers into frankfurters and dust with flour; set aside.
To Make Batter: In a large bowl combine the cornmeal, 1/3 cup flour, corn flour, salt, cayenne pepper, egg, 2 tablespoons oil and water. Whisk all together.
Heat 1 quart oil in a large skillet over high heat (to about 375 degrees F, 190 degrees C). Roll or dip franks in batter, then fry until lightly browned. Drain on paper toweling and serve.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
