Any hot dogs will work, but to have them "just like at the fair", we recommend using 10-to-the-pound size hot dogs. Remember, the better the hot dog, the better the Pronto Pup will be!
For sticks, use wooden candy apple sticks, popsicle sticks or craft sticks.
- Pat dry hot dogs with towel and insert stick in the end of wiener (about half way).
- In deep mixing bowl, add two parts Pronto Pup Flour Mix and one part water. Mix with a wire whip until all lumps are gone. Batter should be thicker than the consistency of pancake batter.
- Dip hot dog into batter. Cover entire hot dog with batter, gently shaking off excess batter for equal coverage. Before placing into fryer, turn hot dog upright to set batter.
- Gently place Pronto Pup into the deep fryer (IMPORTANT: OIL TEMP SHOULD BE 375°F*) and let it float. Using tongs, occasionally roll the Pronto Pup for even cooking. Pronto Pup is done after 2-1/2" minutes or until a deep golden color. Remove with tongs. Let cool a little and ENJOY!
*Deep Frying Notes: Use vegetable oil. temperature should be 375° F to cook properly. If temperature is under 375°, the batter will not stick to hot dog in the oil. If temperature is above 375°, batter will cook too quickly and be doughy inside.
