Bratwurst Beer-Battered Corn Dogs

Everyone loves a good corn dog
beer-battered corn dog

While this recipe is specifically football friendly with its beer-infused batter, "try using merguez sausage with truffles next time," Micheal Ferraro says. It'll be one classy shindig.

Recipe from Delicatessen.


  • 1/2 Cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 Cup milk
  • 1/4 Cup Stella Artois beer
  • 4 Cups vegetable oil
  • 2 bratwurst sausages, cut in half
  • 4 wood skewers
  • 1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon whole-grain Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 Cup crème fraîche
  • 1 Teaspoon chopped dill
  • 2 Teaspoons minced chives
  • Juice of half a lemon


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.
