Feeling a little bit corn-y today?



I pulled out some chicken to make kebabs for dinner.

My kids complained.

They haaaatttte chicken apparently.

A little fact that I did not find out until after the chicken had thawed out.

Thanks for the update boys!

They wanted hot dogs...

And I had the dogs but not the buns.

So I decided to do something a little off the wall last night...

And I made corn dogs!

That's right I made them. 

Like ALL by MYSELF!

Go ahead, be amazed.

Who's your daddy now Mr. Coney Island Corn Dog Vendor man?


These little gems were a cinch to make....a bit grease-y, splatter-y kinda messy...

But SUPER simple!

And the best part...


My kids LOVED them!  

So be a little "corn-y" and try something different for dinner.

You'll be glad you did!


Mini Corn Dog Bites

Keywords: appetizer Dinner Lunch American


Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour, divided
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon season salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 hot dogs, cut into thirds
  • Vegetable or canola oil, for frying
Instructions
1. Preheat about 3 inches of oil to 350 degrees over medium heat.

2. Combine 2/3 cup of flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, garlic powder and season salt in a large mixing bowl. Stir in the milk.

3. In a pie plate or other shallow dish, add the remaining flour.

4. Dredge each hot dog piece in the flour and then dip it into the cornmeal batter. Shake off any excess batter, but be sure that the hot dog is fully covered in batter.

5. Drop into the hot oil and fry for 3-4 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden brown and crispy.

6. Fry in batches, being careful not to over crowd the pan.

7. Drain on a paper towel lined plate and keep warm in a 200 degree oven until all of the hot dogs are fried.

8. Serve immediately with ketchup and mustard, if desired.

Have you ever tried making homemade corn dogs?

  1. I've never made homemade corn dogs - but my kid would LOVE them. She loves when daddy is out of town and mommy doesn't cook (because then she can have the frozen ones). Must try these!
