  1. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add the buttermilk, eggs, and 2 tablespoons of the oil and stir to combine. Fold in the onions, jalapenos, and cheese.
  2. In a large pot or electric fryer, heat enough oil to come halfway up the sides to 360 degrees F.
  3. One at a time, while holding the skewers, dip the hot dogs into the batter, turning to completely and thickly coat on all sides. Slip the coated hot dogs in batches into the hot oil and cook, turning, until golden brown on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and season lightly with Essence.
  4. Arrange the corn dogs on a platter with shredded red cabbage and pass the dipping sauce on the side. Serve hot.
  5. Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):
  6. Combine all ingredients thoroughly and store in an airtight jar or container.
  7. Yield: about 2/3 cup

  9. Spicy Green Onion Dipping Sauce:
  10. In a food processor or blender, combine the egg, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, hot sauce and salt and process until smooth. With the machine running and in a steady stream, add the vegetable and olive oil and process until emulsified.
  11. Pour into a decorative bowl and fold in the green onions. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. (The sauce will keep, covered and refrigerated, for up to 24 hours.)
  12. Yield: about 1 1/4 cups
  13. Contains Raw Eggs: The Food Network Kitchen suggest caution in consuming raw and lightly cooked eggs due to the slight risk of salmonella or other food-borne illness. To reduce this risk, we recommend you use only fresh, properly refrigerated, clean grade A or AA eggs with intact shells, and avoid contact between the yolks or whites and the shell. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use shell eggs that have been treated to destroy salmonella, by pasteurization or another approved method.
