Here is part three in our Don’t Make It- Buy it series where you can learn to make your own mini corn dogs!
Homemade mini corn dogs
- 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- dash of pepper
- 2 tbsp of sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 cup milk
- Oil to fry
- 1 pack of hotdogs (I use chicken or turkey)
Combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk.
Preheat oil in a deep heavy skillet over medium heat or in your fryer (I use a small 1qt. fryer).
Cut your hotdogs into four pieces then cut those in half to get 8 pieces from 1 hotdog, do this to each hotdog to end up with 64 pieces. Roll each piece in the batter and place in the fryer, only add a few at a time and only dip them in batter just before placing in oil.
Fry until lightly brown, about 3 min. Drain on paper towels on top a cooling rack and serve.
If your planning on saving these for later use (I do, as this makes a lot) line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place each cooked and fried mini corn dog on lined cookie sheet. Freeze for 4 hours, remove from cookie sheet and place in a freezer safe bag. Once ready to use take out however many you like and bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. or microwave for 40 sec.
