Ingredients You’ll Need:

We recommend buying your favorite hot dogs because if they taste better to you, then the Pronto Pups will be better! With our flour mixes, you can use our famous recipe to create truly the best Pronto Pup at home.


  1. Pat dry hot dogs with towel and insert stick in the end of wiener (about half way).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

Tips and Variations:

  • Get creative with your Pronto Pups by experimenting with different hot dog varieties, such as cheese-filled or vegetarian options.
  • Try adding a pinch of your favorite seasonings or spices to the batter for a unique twist on the classic flavor.
  • For a healthier alternative, you can bake your Pronto Pups in the oven at 375°F (190°C) until they’re golden brown and crispy, flipping them halfway through.
