Corn Dog Bites are hot dogs cut into bite size pieces, dipped in a corn batter and deep fried.
Corn Dog Bites
A few weeks ago I was at the flea market looking for props for pictures and they had a booth with corn dogs. Big mistake, they were terrible and greasy. I came home wanting to make them, so I did. Lucky for me I had some hot dogs in the freezer. Then I whipped up some corn bread batter to dip the hot dogs in. It didn’t take long before these were lunch. They were also good!
I think you might be surprised at how easy these are to make. I bet kielbasa or polish sausage would be good too done this way. One thing for sure the kids will love them.
- 3 cups cornmeal
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 1/4 cups water; plus more if needed
- 1 egg
- 8 hot dogs
- 3 - 4 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 qt. oil
- Heat the oil to 360-375°F.
- Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking soda, salt and sugar.
- In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, water and egg.
- Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir to combine. Let rest for 5 minutes. If the batter seems too thick, add a few tablespoons of water.
- If the hot dogs are wet, dry them with paper towels. Cut into 4 - 5 pieces.
- Roll the hot dogs in the cornstarch. I poked a skewer in the end of the hot dog. Dip them into the corn batter. Let excess drip off and put in hot oil.
- Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
