• 3 russet potatoes, peeled
  • 6 hot dogs
  • Oil, for frying
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup lager-style beer, plus additional as needed


  1. Skewer the potatoes. Using a knife, start from the end and spiralize the potato. Keep your knife at a slight angle, and slice while rotating the potato, slowly moving your knife as to make one continuous slice across the potato. Remove the skewer.
  2. Using the tip of a potato peeler, remove the center of the potato (as you would the core of an apple). Slide the spiralized potatoes over the skewered hot dogs and spread out evenly.
  3. Heat a cast-iron pan with about 1 1/2 inches of oil to 350 degrees.
  4. Mix all the batter ingredients together and place in a tall vessel (deep enough to submerge the skewered hot dogs).
  5. Dip hot dogs into the batter, let any excess run off and fry for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve with your choice of condiments.
