Pronto Pups


I miss the long standing family tradition of eating as many Pronto Pups as the stomach can handle during summer vacations in Grand Haven, Michigan.
On top of juggling a few too many pups in your hands you can enjoy this beautiful area with a walk on the pier. There is nothing comparable to the fresh lake breeze either.
Pronto Pups are these tasty deep fried dogs that come either naked or with ketchup or mustard. That is it. Whoever came up with this concept 61 years ago is genius.
Whoever wishes to join on my Pronto Pup run, please let me know. It will entirely be worth our time.

Now, if you can't make it to Grand Haven, you could certainly try making these at home. If you do, I need to know how they turn out.

2 beaten eggs
1 1/2-2 c. milk
1 c. corn meal
2 c. flour
3/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 c. sugar
24 wieners
Oil

Combine eggs and milk; add dry ingredients to form batter. Heat wieners in boiling water; dry. Insert wooden meat skewer into each wiener. Dip wiener into batter, fry in deep oil at 375 degrees. Yield 12 servings.

You don't realize how great West Michigan is until you leave... I can't believe I live here. You need to make a pronto pup run because I certainly will go with.

That's a corn dog recipe, not a pronto pup. Pronto pups are made with wheat-based flour. Corn dogs with corn-based flour.

Of course, either of these are darned good.
