How To Make mini corn dogs

  • 1
    Cut the hot dogs in half and dry them thoroughly. Thread the hot dogs on to a popsicle stick or lollipop stick.
  • 2
    Whisk together the corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the egg and buttermilk and stir to combine. Pour the batter into a measuring cup or glass for ease in dipping the dogs. Let the batter sit for 15-20 minutes.

    Heat 2 1/2 – 3 inches oil in dutch oven or heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Dip each hotdog into the batter and turn to coat. Then carefully put it right in the hot oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. For best taste results serve promptly.
