Spicy Ultimate Corn Dogs
With an easy cornmeal batter, this summer classic is baked instead of deep-fried for a healthy homemade version that the whole family will love.
4 Maple Lodge Farms Spicy Ultimate™ Chicken Frankfurters
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons cold butter
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
Ketchup, for serving
Mustard, for serving
Step 1. Preheat oven to 425˚F. In bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in butter with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Step 2. In separate bowl, whisk egg with milk; stir into flour mixture, mixing just until combined.
Step 3. Insert wooden stick into each sausage lengthwise, leaving 2-inch handle. Wrap dough around each frankfurter to cover and enclose. Arrange on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
Step 4. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with ketchup and mustard.
– Instead of using Spicy Ultimate™ Chicken Frankfurters, substitute Maple Lodge Farms Ultimate™ Chicken Frankfurters or Smokies™ Chicken Sausages if desired.
– Corn dogs can also be served with salsa, guacamole or tzatziki sauce.
– For an extra-smooth corn dog, wrap in plastic wrap and twist ends to tighten.
