Corn dogs are made from sausages (often the same type as hot dogs - hot dogs, often with added mustard, ketchup, onions, mayonnaise, spices, ...) mounted on a small stick, outside Cover with a thick layer of deep-fried cornmeal. Because of the popularity of the corndog, National Corndog Day is celebrated every year on March 21 to recognize the popularity of this corndog snack.

New German immigrants to Texas have been credited with introducing corn dogs to the United States. They — the new German immigrants — produced sausages for trade, but they had trouble selling them in Texas. So they take the sausages, roll them in cornflakes, and fry them. From there, the corn dog was born. They later added sticks to this dish.

History of the National Corndog Day

​​​​The fried food on a stick was especially loved and the idea of it was patented in the US in 1927. In 1929, the patent was accepted. On the patent, it is said that many foods other than hot dogs can also be used in the same way as corn dogs. The patent also says that with a stick, it will allow easier handling and cleaner eating of fried food.

Corn dogs were first prepared in the United States in 1937. Hot dogs are a favorite at high school baseball games. Ballpark vendors ran out of hot dogs during a high school baseball game in Adel, Iowa, for players. Roger Newman, a local pub owner who runs one of the vendors, used leftover sausages to make stick-free corn dogs. By Roger Newman, each sausage was coated with cornmeal that he had prepared for an upcoming fish dish, and then he returned to the ballpark with these corn dogs. Although there aren't any sticks for corn dogs, patrons have kept the treat using a variety of methods. Corn dogs with wax paper and paper cones is held by some patrons.

In the 1940s, Corn dogs really became more popular. And they got so much love that they became a staple at state fairs and festivals. Brady Sahnow and Henry Otley was known that they created the celebration in 1992. National Corndog Day was celebrated to honor the saving grace of corn dogs and March Madness which is basketball.
