Deep Fried Hot Dog

Ok so I have been watching the food channel for like 2 weeks lol. Last week they showed a place that deep fries their hot dogs and everyone said they are so good.
Has anyone had one before??? I loved deep fried food and I love hot dogs lol... I have 2 lonely hot dogs in the fridge and am thinking of making one.
I just dont want to go at it and be completely disquisted.

So have you tried?? Would you recommend? Whats the difference in taste/texture?

  • I'm Scottish so of course I've had a deep friend hot dog. The fish and chip shop is the restaurant of choice and they deep fry everything. Honestly I didn't notice much difference. The skin is a little crispier but that's about it, it's basically the same as steaming as far as the inside goes.

    If you really want something different try deep fried pizza or a deep fried cheeseburger; take a fast food type cheeseburger, dip it in batter, and deep fry it. Follow it up with a battered and fried mars bar. Just don't deep fry skittles, they will kill the fryer. Trust me.

  • they are also known as a ripper. shallow fry one to try it. It kakes them crispier. I like mine cooked on a griddle with natural casing. Microwaved dogs are nasty!

  • I have never heard of them but I wouldn't eat them cause they sound fattening. And if Im going to eat something to make me fat then I want it to be something that tastes better than a hot dog! lol

  • They are really gross and fattening. I would not recommend them at all.

  • I have never heard of deep fried hot dogs but I have been to the state fair in our area and they had deep fried snickers bars and We tried them both and honestly I think they were both disgusting just like it sounds ha ha. As for deep fried hot dogs...I like corn dogs and their deep fried.... here at home we buy them frozen and bake them. Try it...let us all know how it turned out. Good luck.

  • I'm feeling that same tightening in my chest as I did the first time someone told me about deep fried bacon. Really, though, I don't think it would be any different than fried bologna.

  • my dh and I saw the same episode a while back.. we tried and it was really gross IMO.. but if you like greasy fried bologna with crust you might like them.. it made sick to my stomach after the first bite.
