The corn dog was invented in Rockaway Beach, Oregon by husband and wife team George and Versa Boyington in the late 1930s. The Boyington’s ran a small hot dog stand on the beach, selling the dogs to tourists and locals alike. When the rain came and ruined the buns, George Boyington came up with the idea of cooking a “bun” as needed. He created a pancake batter based mix and the duo came up with the formula still used today.
