Bypass the freezer aisle and whip up a DIY recipe for Easy Homemade Mini Corn Dogs perfect for dipping and dunking!
The humble hot dog can be many a wondrous snack, especially when it goes beyond the bun. While Everything Puff Pastry Pigs In a Blanket have been a mealtime game-changer around here, it was time to tackle a DIY spin on a deep-fried delicacy I grew up eating regularly while making the rounds at mall food courts: corn dogs!
The setup couldn’t be more simple for this snack-sized spin on homemade corn dogs.
A quick-fix cornmeal batter, made with just a handful of fridge and pantry staples, comes together in minutes. Then it’s time to choose your hot dog (or cocktail weenie!) and grab the skewers, which can be lollipop sticks or Popsicle sticks.
1/2 cup melted butter (or 1/4 cup butter + 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce)
1/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend
1 cup buttermilk (regular milk is fine)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
8-10 all-beef hot dogs, cut into 1″ bites
1- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine butter and sugar in a bowl, and whisk to combine. Add eggs and whisk to incorporate. Add buttermilk and whisk to incorporate.
