- 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 Teaspoon garlic powder
- 25 cocktail weenies about 1 package

- Heat canola oil in a Dutch oven or stockpot to 375 degrees F.

- Pierce cocktail weenies with a skewer to easily dip into the batter. Allow excess batter to drip off, then carefully add to the hot oil. Fry for 4 minutes, or until golden brown. *I worked in batches of 5 at a time. It is important not to overcrowd them or allow the batter to touch as they will stick. Batch size will depend on the size of the pot.*
- Once breading is golden brown remove from oil and rest on a wire rack lined baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning before oil dries so that it will stick.
- Prepare the dip. Combine ketchup, mayo, horseradish, and dijon mustard in a bowl and whisk until smooth.
