  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 lb frozen straight-cut french fries optional
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying

Serving Ideas (Optional)

  • Skewer each hot dog lengthwise and reserve.
  • Arrange french fries in a variety of lengths on a plate.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together cornstarch, all-purpose flour, eggs and water.
  • Pour into a tall water glass and set aside.
  • Heat 3-4 inches of oil to 375°F (191°F) in a saucepan or deep fryer.
  • Holding on to the skewer, immerse a hot dog into the batter to coat. Remove and press fries onto batter until mostly covered.
