Easy Fun-Size Corn Dogs
Skip the deep frying and prepare Chef John's fun-size corn dogs in the oven for that same great carnival flavor.
Fried half and baked half. Obviously the fried ones turned out better... but just. Nice that the same batter worked for both cooking methods. I agree with some others that adding a touch more sugar would be good. I used medium ground cornmeal and the texture was perfect! Another winner Chef John. Thanks! (I did have a little trouble with them sticking to the mini muffin pan despite careful oiling).
Mine didn’t make 24. It only made 14. The batter was drier than the video showed but still came out fairly decent in the end.
WOW! I don't know what others did, but these were amazing!!! Totally crisp on the outside without frying! Everyone here LOVED them including me who doesn't care for corn dogs in the first place. I got about 28 from my batches and used about 5 hot dogs. The title says "fun sized", so I assumed it was my mini muffin pan. And the liquid to dry ratio is the same as my corn muffin recipe so we didn't have any issues with consistency. Than you Chef John for another excellent recipe!
Nice, Chef John! Thank you - hmm...thinking maybe I could try this with pulled pork, too.
Enjoyed this very much, only problem. I think my cat got one of the hot dogs, as I only had 23 when it came to to put them in the mix...sneaky little guy! Using the mini-muffin pan, they cooked in only 10 minutes. I used spicy brown mustard to dip them in...fantastic!
Hot dogs are skewered on sticks, dipped in corn batter, and then fried to a golden brown.
