Mini Corn -Dogs....Check!

First item to cross off my Autumn To-Do List - Make Corn Dogs!

I found this easy recipe on Pinterest from Sweat Pea's Kitchen, here for Mini Corn Dogs. 

  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 (16 ounce) packages beef hot dogs
  • Toothpicks
  1. In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk. Add more milk to adjust consistency for dipping.
  2. Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat to 365°. (I used my "Fry-Daddy")
  3. Cut each hot dog into thirds. Pat hot dogs dry with a paper towel and insert toothpicks into cut hot dogs. Roll hot dogs in batter until well coated.

     4. Fry 4 to 6 corn dogs at a time for 1-2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.  Place
          in a 200 F oven to keep the corn dogs warm until all are fried.

It made so many, that I shared with my neighbor - Her kids loved them too! I thought it would be cute to serve them on bamboo skewers.
