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.

Corn Dog Bites are hot dogs cut into bite size pieces, dipped in a corn batter and deep fried.
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil to 360-375°F.
  2. Whisk together the cornmeal, flour, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, water and egg.
  4. 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.
  5. If the hot dogs are wet, dry them with paper towels. Cut into 4 - 5 pieces.
  6. 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.
  7. Cook for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel.
