baked corn dogs healthy version

 

 

My children love corn dogs.  To purchase enough for this large family requires you purchase 2 boxes which in turn leads to an expensive meal. Plus the fact that they are deep fried, my children do not need all that extra fat and calories. I had to come up with something different.

And I did.

For this  recipe you will need the following:

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 6 hotdogs

 

For our large family we did quadruple this recipe and made 24 hot dogs.

Mix your dry ingredients together first, and then make a well in the center and add your wet ingredients.  Mix until well blended.  It will be thick.  You are going to need to roll it out.

I sprinkled flour on the counter top and rolled out a batch of cornbread dough. 2014-04-16_00129

I tried every way to coat the hotdog under the sun.  I tried cutting and then wrapping the dough around.  Tried pinching it this way and that way.  Then I realized I would treat it like my childrens’ playdough.  I placed an amount around the hotdog and then….2014-04-16_00130

I started rolling it out.  Like we make snakes for playdough.  2014-04-16_00131

When i was finished it made a perfectly smooth coating to the hotdog.  So much easier then pinching and wrapping.

You can bake at 400 for about 20 minutes until browned.

Or you can place them onto a cookie sheet and then freeze them.  After completely frozen, place into freezer bags and put away for a late night snack, or a quick lunch:)
