Bratwurst Beer-Battered Corn Dogs

Bratwurst Beer-Battered Corn Dogs
Staff Writer

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.
