  • Summary

    When executive editor John Willoughby caught sight of these freshly fried corn dogs, he exclaimed, "Just like the Iowa State Fair!" When he bit into one, he acknowledged that it was even better. Grilling the hot dogs first lends them a deeper, smokier flavor, and the buttermilk–cornmeal coating fries up to a thick, fluffy shell—delicious with mustard or ketchup and a frosty root beer on the side.
