Michael Ferraro serves up these corn dogs at plenty of potlucks and parties, because they're quick and easy. And while this recipe is specifically football friendly with its beer-infused batter, "try using merguez sausage with truffles next time," Ferraro says. It'll be one classy shindig. Recipe from Delicatessen.

Directions

Preheat oil to 350 degrees. Whisk cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar, baking powder, egg, milk, and beer in a medium-sized bowl. Insert skewer lengthwise through the sausage and coat with batter. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes, just until golden brown, and place on a paper towel-lined plate. In a small bowl, combine crème fraîche, mustards, lemon juice, dill, and chives; season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve the corn dog along with dip.
