Nothing fancy here but as a child, my friend had "Carnival Dogs" prepared by her English mother. These were hot dogs scored in a spiral and rolled first in catsup and then in cornmeal. They were then either baked or fried. Hot dogs were the subject over a recent bonfire and my friend wonders if anyone has ever had or heard of these. She's not sure if they had an English origin, were created as a "stretcher" during the Great Depression, or were just something her mother concocted. Any thoughts?
