So Corny!


I just love going to county fairs and smelling the deep fried corn dogs! These are one of Carlee's favorite treats but with her egg allergy she couldn't have them anymore. She just turned 3 on Sunday so we decided to whip up a batch for her birthday dinner. We even doubled the recipe so I could put some in the freezer for her.

I found a recipe that looked really good off of allrecipes.com and we decided to give it a try. All I had to do was use an egg substitute. Everyone at the party said they were better than store bought!

Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Ready In: 40 Minutes
Yields: 16 servings

1 cup yellow cornmeal 1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt 1 quart vegetable oil for frying
1/8 teaspoon black pepper 2 (16 ounce) packages beef frankfurters
1/4 cup white sugar 16 wooden skewers
4 teaspoons baking powder

1.In a medium bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, pepper, sugar and baking powder. Stir in eggs and milk.
2.Preheat oil in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Insert wooden skewers into frankfurters. Roll frankfurters in batter until well coated.
3.Fry 2 or 3 corn dogs at a time for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.

Cousin Kaitlyn dipped all the corn dogs into a cup. It was much easier to coat them in a cup than the mixing bowl.

My mother in law took over the cooking. Hmmm...now that I think about it I didn't really do much except provide the ingredients!

The birthday girl couldn't wait for her hot dog to cook so she snuck off with just a hot dog on a stick!
