Prepare Today Homemade-Corn Dogs

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Happy 4th of July!  Are you headed out for a BBQ today?  Hopefully the rain will hold off, but if you get stuck indoors I have a kid-tested & kid-approved recipe for you today. These corn dogs are really easy to prepare, and to cook, AND so much cheaper than buying them in the store!
1 C cornmeal
1 C flour
1/4t salt
1/8 t pepper
4 t baking powder
1 egg
1 C milk

4 C oil
2 packages hot dogs

Combine the first 8 ingredients and stir.  Heat the oil in a pan. Using Popsicle or lollipop sticks, stick each hot dog onto a stick and pat dry with a paper towel.  

The trick to dipping the hot dogs into the batter is to use a tall kitchen glass.  Pour the dough (you can thin the batter with a little milk) into the glass and dip each hot dog into it, covering completely.  If the dough won't stick to the dogs, try dipping them in flour first then the batter. Fry the corn dogs until golden brown.  Drain on a paper towel.  Repeat for all the hot dogs.  

I have also baked these in the oven at 450 for 10-12 minutes.  The batter tended to flatten out, but they tasted good (my kids approved:)

You need this DELICIOUS honey mustard dipping sauce to go with your corn dogs!!  My sister made it for Father's Day for our sweet potato fries and we almost had to get spoons out to finish off the bowl. Check out the original recipe HERE from Paula Deen!

Honey Mustard:
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice or juice from 1/2 lemon
Horseradish, to taste
2 tablespoons orange juice (more or less as needed)
Combine all ingredients except orange juice; stir well. Thin to pouring consistency for dressing or dipping consistency for dips with orange juice. Cover and chill for 2 or 3 hours.
Yield: 1 1/4 cups
