Homemade Corn Dogs Recipe
If your kids are like mine (and me!) they love corn dogs. I rarely buy corn dogs from the store because, well, they just taste so much better homemade and I can use the hot dog brand I prefer.
I also love the fact that these homemade corn dogs are cheaper than store bought varieties and as an added bonus, my kids like helping to make them. You can also triple the recipe below and freeze the left overs.
1 Cup Yellow Cornmeal
1 Cup All purpose Flour
3 TBS Sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
Dash of Pepper
4 tsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Milk
8-10 hot dogs
Vegetable Oil for frying
Optional: For honey battered corndogs add 2 TBS honey to the batter.
Pour oil into the frying pan. Heat until about 330-350 degrees. Combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, baking powder, egg, and milk. Mix until batter is smooth.
Skewer your hot dogs. Lightly dust hot dogs in flour. This helps the batter stick to the hot dog instead of slipping right off.
I also find it easier to place your batter in a tall drinking glass for dipping rather than trying to coat using a bowl.
Once your oil is properly heated, coat your hot dog in batter. Gently place into the oil. After 1 min, or once that side is golden brown, rotate the corn dog to cook the other side. Once the corn dog is cooked, remove from oil, and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Enjoy!
These can be frozen once completely cooled for enjoying at a later date.
How easy and fun is that?! The kids love them, and I feel better knowing that I am choosing the quality of hot dog and other ingredients.
