This is a take on a food truck recipe I saw on television. They can be used as an appetizer or as a main dish. I served them with Roman Rice Balls, Red Sauce, grilled squash and a salad. I found the corndog sticks on In retrospect I would change the way I made them. I was not sure the meatballs would get hot in middle so I warmed them in a microwave before coating with batter and deep frying. This was a mistake as the surface oil did not allow the batter to cling to the meatballs as best they could. Next time I will not preheat them or may use a flour, egg wash and bread crumb coating instead. They still tasted good however. A hearty red wine works well with the meat. I chose Viansa's 2010 Sonoma County Vino Rosso. It is a Super Tuscan Blend of Primitivo, Sangiovese, Barbara and Merlot.
