Calories:
Author: Terri

Ingredients

  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp Slap Ya Mama® seasoning
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • cups buttermilk
  • 2 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 8 all beef hot dogs each cut into 3 pieces (I used Ball Park® Beef Franks)
  • Cheddar cheese cut into 1/4" strips
  • 2 + cups vegetable oil for frying

Instructions

  • Heat about 2 cups of vegetable oil in a medium heavy bottom pan at 375°.

For the Corn Dog Bites

  • Cut each hot dog into 3 pieces, set aside.
  • Cut a few slices of cheddar cheese and then slice each into about 1/4" thick and the length of each hot dog piece.
  • Take a bigger size straw and poke it through the middle of each little hot dog to make a hole.
  • Stuff a slice of cheddar cheese in each hot dog, the bigger the hole the better. Set aside.
  • Once all pieces are stuffed with cheese, time to make the batter.

For the Batter

  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together.
  • In a small bowl, mix egg, milk and oil together then add to dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened.
  • Prior to dipping hot dogs into the batter, make sure to dry each one off with a paper towel.
  • Next, dip each piece into the batter, covering it completely and then adding it immediately to the heated oil with a spoon.
  • Cook until golden brown on all sides and then remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Fry about 6 at a time for even frying.

ENJOY!
