That's assuming I know what "corn bread" is...I could look this up on the internet but don't want to ruin my ignorance..



Corn bread is a dough made primarily of corn meal, rather than flour. It can be baked into a bread-like loaf, deep fried, made into muffins, or wrapped around a hotdog and fried.

When you get chicken and a biscuit - what the hell is the biscuit? I'm sure its not what we would term as a biscuit coz that would make no sense whatsoever as a side dish to chicken..


A biscuit is a small bread item...like a savory scone, but ideally with more moisture content.

Also, what are Gritts? (spelling?)


Grits are ground corn cooked with water. Think loose polenta.

While I'm at it, what would you guys define a "hotdog" as, I been having this argument with people for months...


Hot dogs are various meat parts injected into a casing and segmented into individual franks. They are a form of sausage usually served on a bun and then topped with any manner of condiments and relishes.



And to bring it full circle: a corn dog looks like this:



It sounds like the bulk of your food confusion could be solved by spending a week or two in the American Southeast.


You forgot to mention that the cornbread (one word, people!) in corn dog (two words!) batter is typically a sweet cornbread, with sugar in it. The result is sort of a fried, corn-y almost cake-like crust that's fried around a "poor man's frankfurter." Black man that I am, I never eat corn dogs unless they're fresh out of a fryer. I made a big batch for July 4th this year and probably won't have another until next July 4th.

Also, fyi Aussies and Englishmen, a less common breakfast variation to cornbread basically uses a pancake batter (i.e. white flour, not corn meal, but still sweet) and a breakfast sausage link. We dip that shit in pancake/maple syrup for a nice 800 calorie breakfast.

Microwaved corn dogs are atrocious.

Best corn dog I ever had was at disneyland. The batter was a little darker, like the color of a Hot Dog on a Stick, but way more flavor.

Anybody got a good recipe for the batter? I want to do some Nathan's corn dogs at home some day.

So is to be classified as a hotdog, does it need to be a frank?

Can any sausage in a roll be classed as a hotdog??

A hot dog is "meat" of highly suspect origin. It's usually all of the non-sale trimmings, if you get my drift. Generally speaking it should be avoided. There are high quality hot dogs, franks, and brats available though, and these tend to be more on the up and up. But as far as corn dogs are concerned, it isn't likely that anything available in a store is anything other than animal filth. Still, they manage to taste phenomenal. I myself partake in corn dog action vegetarian style. A little mustard and tabasco makes it perfecto.

Hot dog has to be a frankfurter in it. Otherwise it's a sausage in a bun.

These "Gourmet Hotdog" joints that have been springing up... An Oxymoron if I ever heard one. They may have some fancy flaours but man are they over-charging you and the meat is still some shit that you wouldn't eat if you could see what it looked like before.

I like hotdogs, but I do not like this pretend fancy shit.

IE buttholes... unless its kosher, then there will be no buttholes.

Chicago is a heated hot dog town. I've seen grown men have full-on arguments with other grown men about proper condiments (no ketchup). Ketchup is the great divide, those who eat hot dogs with ketchup are considered by many to be hillbillies with no taste when it comes to tubed meats.

That's silly. Hotdogs should be slathered in mustard, ketchup, relish, and onions. Always. Anything else is uncivilized. And frankly, I'd like to see rye buns. Wheat is a step in the right direction, but proper bread would be nice. Oooh, or pumpernickel.
