Corn dogs are not just for baseball fans, of course. "As a former carney, I LOVE these!" raves Keri. "The one thing I miss most about being a part of a traveling carnival company is the hand-dipped corn dogs." As an old pro, Keri has a couple suggestions for making them at home. "Dry the hot dogs with a paper towel before dipping them in the batter. This way, you don't need to coat them with flour or anything before dipping. And make sure your batter is ICE COLD."

This burger dog is "far more than a hot dog-shaped cheeseburger," says Chef John. The burger's shape helps develop an incredible tasting grilled crust that covers more surface area than a typical patty, and the proportions between meat, cheese, and bun are exceptional. "It's a one-handed wonder that's perfectly proportioned and easier to eat than a regular cheeseburger."
