Herbaceous Homemade Mini Corn Dogs

"Homemade corn dogs, the perfect mix of goodness and savoriness. A perfect representation of comfort food! A fun snack or meal that is coated in a layer of cornmeal batter and deep-fried to perfection. The history of corn dogs is still unknown. However, one thing is for sure. It was created sometime between the 1920s and 1940s. Although, several vendors from Texas, Illinois, and California claim the invention of the corn dogs, verification of these claims is impossible. Some sources say Carl and Neil Fletcher were the inventors of this great comfort food at a Texas Fair in 1942."

NotesHomemade corn dogs can be made with high-quality sausage and the perfect batter. One thing to make it more interesting is to add herbs and spices. Adding a cup of beer to the batter mixture will create an exciting crunch and flavor too.
