Corny Dogs

For the last 50 years, I have served Chili and Pigs In a Blanket for Halloween supper. This year, I saw a recipe for Corny Dogs on http://thepioneerwoman.com I adapted the recipe for our family, and added them to the menu. They are delicious...my guys thought they were as good as Fletcher's at the Texas State Fair. Give them a try!
3 c Krustez Pancake Mix
1 c yellow corn meal
1 egg, slightly beaten
3 c water
Hot Dogs
Cooking Oil

In a large bowl, combine pancake mix and cornmeal. Stir to mix well. Add egg and water slowly while beating with a whisk, to avoid lumps. Insert sticks into hot dogs so that they're 2/3 of the way through. Heat oil over medium-high heat. Drop in a bit of batter to see if it's ready: the batter should immediately start to sizzle but should not immediately brown/burn. Dip the hot dogs into the batter and allow excess to drip off for a couple of seconds. Carefully drop into the oil (stick and all) and use tongs or a spoon to make sure it doesn't hit the bottom of the pan and stick. Flip several times to ensure even browning, and remove from the oil when the outside is deep golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes; drain.


  1. Wow, I need to try these! I have never, ever made corny dogs. Thanks for trying this recipe & sharing!!!

  2. This was my first attempt, Kitty. They turned out great. The batter is light, and it makes a crispy crust. Let me know how you like them! The el cheapo chop sticks make perfect corny dog sticks!

  3. I love having corny dogs but have never thought of making them at home.Your recipe seems easy enough for me to give a try:)If I have a crispy crust - I'm happy!:)

  4. They are very good, and not very complicated to make.
