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.

  • 4 medium wieners sliced into 6 sections each
  • 24 medium tooth pics
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup cold water (vary depending on how thick you want the batter)
  • 2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 cups oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup ketchup for serving
  1. 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.

  2. 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. 

  3. Add the bread crumbs to a separate bowl.

  4. Dredge the hot dog rings into the batter until they are coated and then into the bread crumbs until coated. Set aside. 

  5. 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.

  6. Serve your hot dog rings with ketchup and enjoy.
