Homemade Corn Dogs

corn dog bitesDoes this photo invoke visions of big tall hats and ice cold lemonade for anyone else??? :) If it doesn’t you’re probably too young to remember Hot Dog on a Stick at the mall.

I have been eyeing this homemade corn dog recipe that I tore out of Food Network magazine for quite some time. It was a great lunch for a lazy Sunday. I used my ancient FryDaddy and it worked perfectly except that it was a little too small for frying bun length dogs………

Oops. So from here on out I cut the hot dogs in half and fried them without the stick and added the stick later.


  • hot dogs
  • sticks (skewers)
  • oil
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. cornmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 1 egg


Mix flour and cornmeal. Add baking powder, sugar, dry mustard and salt. I had to add extra salt because my first corn dog came out really bland so test it after your first one.

Whisk in milk and egg.

Dredge in flour. I actually messed this part up and didn’t dredge. The batter had a hard time sticking to the dog. We had some pretty cool shaped corn dogs though. :)

Dip into batter.

Fry until golden brown.

Stick a stick in it and enjoy!
