A corndog is a sausage (usually a hot dog) on a stick that has been coated with a thick layer of cornmeal batter and then deep-fried. It originated in the United States and is commonly found in American cuisine. Corn dogs are often served as street food or fast food. For the best and freshest preparation, some vendors or restaurateurs dip and fry their corndogs before serving. Some corndog purveyors sell premade frozen corn dogs, which have been thawed and then fried again or browned in an oven. Corndogs can also be found at almost any supermarket in North America as frozen food that can be heated and served. Premade frozen corn dogs can also be heated in a microwave oven, but the cornbread coating will lack texture.
