Missing my favorite summertime treat...

I didn't get home to Michigan this summer, and, thanks to Pat Sloan, I'm now craving one of my ultimate favorite summertime treats -- Pronto Pups. Do you know these delicious dogs? Until this morning, I didn't know they were a franchise...

This is the Pronto Pup stand on the boardwalk in Grand Haven... Two serving windows, with the fryer in the middle. Each battered and deep fried dog-on-a-stick comes wrapped with a cheap napkin around the wooden skewer. Ketchup and/or mustard are painted on by the server with basting brushes. I think they serve chips and fountain pop with the pups, and that's about it.

The lines can be soooo looong... and they're soooo worth it!

Oh man, I haven't had a corn dog in years - they don't exist here. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, as I'm sure they are really healthy...
