Of all the tasty treats available at Disneyland, none are as memorable and hard to find in the “real world” as the hand-dipped corn dogs at the Little Red Wagon Corn Dog cart by Main Street or Corn Dog Castle in California Adventure. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve waited outside that cute little red wagon to get our giant, crispy corn dog. This ain’t your typical frozen variety found at your grocer. This is a thick, meaty and crunchy delight. You’ve never had any corndog like it. And with the park closures and uncertain future of theme parks, not to mention the now $10 price tag on one of these—it was time to crack the code.
My version is so close to Disneyland’s corn dogs, my kids thought it was the same! Go ahead, make these at home and reminisce back to all the fun memories at Disneyland. Enjoy your summer!
Use jumbo or colossal sized beef franks if you want them to be similar in size to the ones you get at Disneyland. These Nathan’s colossal worked well for me, Hewbrew National Quarter Pound beef franks would be great too.
Use a tall drinking glass to hold the batter, once the batter gets low, hold and tilt the glass to get a thick coating of batter on the franks.
