When you go to a county or State fair, you are sure to see vendors selling corn dogs. These are easy to make and delicious with mustard or ketchup. I also wondered what you might want to serve with them. What I found is that baked beans, macaroni and cheese or french fries are some of the favorites. What is fun about making corn dogs from scratch is that you have a better control with the ingredients, like choosing a healthier hot dog. They also freeze well and you can reheat them in a 350-degree oven straight from your freezer.

Tools
 One 12” cast iron pan or a pan that can take high heat
 1 deep fry or instant meat thermometer
 6-inch wooden skewers
 Empty container such as a milk carton (*see note at the end)
Ingredients
 1 quart for frying (I used peanut oil)
 1 cup flour (I used King Arthur’s gluten free)
 1 ¼ cup yellow cornmeal
 2 tablespoons sugar (I used turbinado)
 2 tablespoons baking powder
 1 teaspoon salt
 2 tablespoons melted butter
 2 tablespoons honey
 2 eggs, beaten
 2 eggs, beaten
 1 ½ cups buttermilk
 1 pound (16 ounces) of hot dogs or sausages (precooked)
 Mustard and ketchup for serving

2

Dry the hot dogs with paper towels and insert a skewer ¾ the way through the middle.

3

Combine the dry ingredients including the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a second bowl, combine the wet ingredients including the butter, honey, eggs and buttermilk.

4

Over medium heat, fill the cast iron pan with the oil and heat for about 5 to 10 minutes until the oil reaches a temperature of 350 degrees F.

5

Meanwhile, combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Use a mixer to ensure they are well combined and smooth.

6

Pour the batter into a tall glass.

7

When the oil is ready, dip the hot dogs into the batter one at a time and place in the oil. It works best to do this in batches of 3 corn dogs at a time. Rotate the corn dogs in the oil until they are completely brown. This should be 3 to 4 minutes.

8

Remove and set on a baking sheet. Keep the corn dogs warm in a 170-degree oven until ready to eat. This serves 3 to 4 (two corn dogs per person).
*When the oil has cooled, pour into your empty container and place in the trash can. It is important not to pour the used oil down the drain as it can clog up the pipes.
