Mini Corn Dogs
We are in a school lunch slump. So I decided to mix things up by making my own mini corn dogs to throw in the lunches.
1 cup corn meal
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/4 cup white sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk
2 (16 ounce) hot dogs of your choice
1 quart vegetable oil (for frying)
Mix wet and dry ingredients separately. Then mix together. Heat up oil in a dutch oven or your preferred frying pot. I used a candy thermometer to keep my oil at the right temperature. Cut up hot dogs in thirds. Cover the hot dogs with flour in a Ziploc bag and shake to coat. Then dip each hot dog in the batter and fry for a 2-3 minutes. You might need to flip them or at least move them around 1/2 way through the frying. Dry on a wire rack over a pan covered in paper towels. I froze all mine and pop 3-4 into my kids lunches each morning with some ketchup.
