I love hot dogs. Let’s face it, they are a North American classic. One would have to say a borderline comfort food. I can’t count the dogs I’ve had a picnics, barbecues, ball games, just to mention a few places. They come in so many shapes and forms with a myriad of toppings. But can you imagine crispy hot dog rings. Yes, a hot dog sliced, dipped in a superb batter, coated with bread crumbs, and deep fried. If you can, then these super crispy hot dog rings are for you. I have to say, they are the ultimate street and party food.
Crispy Hot Dog Rings
I always love party and street food. Especially when they are easy to make at home. These super easy crispy hot dog rings are just the ticket for any occasion. I always serve them up for game nights and everybody devours them.
Slice the hot dogs lengthwise into 3 pieces and slice them in half. Grab one slice and form it into a circle so it overlaps about 1/4 of an inch. Insert a tooth pick trough each so a circle forms. Set aside.
In a separate bowl add the flour, corn starch, seasoning, egg, and a bit of the water. Begin to whisk and continue adding water, a bit at a time, until a fairly thick batter forms. Think enough to coat the wieners.
Add the bread crumbs to a separate bowl.
Dredge the hot dog rings into the batter until they are coated and then into the bread crumbs until coated. Set aside.
Heat oil in a pan until it reaches between 329 F and 350 F - about 180 C. Fry the hot dog rings until golden brown. This won't take long. About 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Set aside on a wire rack.
Serve your hot dog rings with ketchup and enjoy.

Hi Dave – I tried 6 times to leave info on YT but none of my comments went through. You couldn’t find the white hots on Amazon because I was spelling it wrong, it’s Zweigle’s white hots. You can go to their website, punch in Buffalo, NY, and it brings up about 20 stores that sell these. Are you familiar with Wegmans grocery store? It’s a family store based in Rochester that has morphed into a grocery store that is the King of stores. There are stores all over Buffalo, you can get them there. BTW, I’m in Rochester! We’re practically neighbors! Zweigle’s, Wegmans, and even French’s mustard are home-based in Rochester. Alex Baldwin was on the Tonight Show some time ago, talking about how he wanted to move his mother to California. She refused to go because they didn’t have a Wegmans out there! It’s an amazing store beyond explanation. You have to see it for yourself. If you come to NY for the white hots, you absolutely have to buy them at Wegmans to experience the store itself. The bigger Wegmans have restaurants, and even sell mixed drinks! They have expanded to parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I’m tired of typing this over and over again! I hope this goes through. Please let me know if it does so I can stop! Thanks – Deb
Hi Deborah. Sorry about the late reply. Somehow missed this one. I looked on the Amazon site and still see nothing in Canada. It shows in the States though. It’s a good excuse to cross the border and have a look. I will check out Wegmans for sure. Love shopping in Rochester anyway. I have friends in A Bay, so I’ll stop there too. Thanks for all the info, Deb. I’ll post some pics when I go.
