I love hot dogs...my favorite brand is BarS. I don't know if that's a local or nation wide brand but I think they taste the best. This is two of my favorite ways to make hotdogs and I usually make them at least twice a month. I would really like to hear some new and inventive ways to serve them. I'll share mine with you....\\ Corndogs This in enough batter for about 6 hotdogs. 1-cup flour 2/3-cup cornmeal 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1-teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons oil 1 egg 3/4-cup milk Remove the hotdogs from the package and roll them up in paper towels to dry them; let them sit in the paper towels while you make the breading. The breading will not stick to wet hotdogs. Put the hot dogs on a Popsicle sticks Mix the ingredients together. Place the batter in a tall glass; the batter will be thick. Dip the hotdogs in the batter and fry at 375°. Cook two corndogs at a time, rolling the corndogs against one another to cook evenly on all sides. Cook until golden brown; drain on paper towels. Enjoy! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hot Dog Kolaches Kolache Roll Dough 2 packages or 16 hot dogs 1-1/4 cup warm water 1/2 cup powdered milk 1/4-cup white sugar 1/4-cup soft spread tub margarine melted 2 tablespoons oil 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg beaten 4 1/2 cups bread flour 3 teaspoons yeast Remove hot dogs from packages and roll up in paper towels and let sit on counter to dry and reach room temp. Place ingredients into bread machine in the order listed. Turn machine on dough cycle and mix well. Turn machine off and allow dough to sit for 1 hour. Turn machine back on dough cycle. When the dough cycle has finished, portion the dough into 16 pieces and flatten each piece out, one at a time, with your fingers side to side. Making a long piece of dough about half again as long as the hot dog. Lay the hot dog down on the dough and pull the ends together over the dog long ways and pinch it. Then bring the side edges up over the dog and pinch them shut. Lay the dogs out in a large roasting pan and spray with cooking spray. Rise for 30 minutes, bake at 375° for 12 minutes. Turn the pan for even browning and bake another 12 minutes. Remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
