A corn dog is a hot dog or sausage that has been dipped in a cornmeal batter and deep fried. Along with cotton candy and funnel cakes, corn dogs are traditional fare at county and state fairs.

The corn dog, also spelled corndog or corn-dog, originated in the United States. German sausage makers, immigrants to Texas, are credited with the invention, for which a patent was awarded in 1929.

Legend has it that not everyone in their new land liked the sausages they prepared, so they discovered a new way to market it!

The corn dog patent reads, in part: "I have discovered that articles of food... when impaled on sticks and dipped in batter.. and then deep fried...the resultant food product on a stick for a handle is a clean, wholesome and tasty refreshment."

Soon, "Krusty Korn Dog" machines could be found across the country.
