Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • For the Franks:
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 18 cocktail franks
  • 5 to 6 cups frozen curly french fries, thawed slightly (about 1 pound)
  • For the Dip:
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha (hot Asian chili sauce) Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
Directions
  • Make the franks: Whisk the flour, cornmeal, sugar and paprika in a large bowl. Add the egg and milk and whisk to make a thick batter, adding more milk if the mixture is too dry. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.

  • Heat about 2 inches vegetable oil in a large pot over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375 degrees F. Dip the franks in the batter, then carefully wrap a long curly fry around each. (If desired, thread the franks on wooden skewers before wrapping with fries.)

  • Working in batches, fry the franks in the hot oil, turning, until golden on all sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels; sprinkle with salt.

  • Meanwhile, make the dip: Whisk the Sriracha, lime juice and mayonnaise in a bowl. Serve with the franks.
