We wanted homemade corn dogs - but thought these little corn dog bites would be easier to make and eat. They were a huge hit and super easy. Next time I think I will wipe down the hot dogs first. They were a bit slick and I think that is why the batter didn't stick real well.
The recipe calls for 2 packages of hot dogs to make corn dogs with this batter. Since I was doing the bites, I thought I would need more batter then a big corn dog. I used this batch for one package of hot dogs and had a lot of leftover, but I don't think a half of a batch would've been enough.
- 1 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
Mix it all together. Dip your hot dogs (or hot dog quarters) into the batter and then fry in hot oil. I used my electric skillet at 350 degrees.
Cook whole hot dogs (with wooden skewers) for about 8 minutes, these little guys only took 5-6 minutes or until they are golden brown. I let them get very golden to make sure the inside was done. Enjoy!
