Corn Dog Lollipops and Foodbuzz Nomination

Yum

Today's recipe is Lollipop Corn Dogs. To tell you the truth, this is uncharted territory for me. I think I have only eaten a corn dog once before at a fair.  My kids have never eaten corn dogs and I have been promising them that I would try to make some for them for for a while now. I finally decided to go for it today and I was happily surprised because they were so very easy to make. I had it in my mind they would be this arduous task, but I was done in the kitchen in 20 minutes. Then it was a corn dog feeding frenzy for my kids with my husband leading the charge. : )

Update:  If you look to the right you can see that Foodbuzz is holding their yearly nominations for Best Blogs.  CURRY AND COMFORT  has been Nominated for Best New Blog.  If you are member of Foodbuzz or not, you are allowed to vote (just click on the picture on the right and it will link you to where you need to go).  I would like to thank you all for all your warm wishes and support.  I am thrilled to bits to be nominated. : )   Okay, now on to the recipe.... 


Ingredients:
1 cup of Bisquick Mix
2/3 cup Corn Meal
1 and 1/3 cup butter milk
1 egg
1 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 package of hot dogs (contains 8)
flour (for dusting)
oil for deep frying

Note: if you do not have bisquick, any premade pancake batter will do or you can make your own pancake batter.




Directions: 
Cut your hot dogs into thirds (this will give you 24 lollipops).
Mix together the Bisquick, corn meal, and seasoning.    Then add your egg and buttermilk. Mix well. The consistency should be like a thick pancake batter. 

Next coat your cut hot dog with flour. Then poke a wooden skewer through the hot dog like a lollipop







 
Dip in the batter and coat well.






Place the corn dog into the hot oil (around 350 degrees).  Fry until golden brown.  Then place on a paper towel to dry.







Enjoy with your favorite hot dog condiment like mustard.

  1. Your corn dogs are perfect! I would have guessed that they were fair food in a heartbeat. Of course, you were smart and made the bits smaller so they won't fall off the stick (not that I have any experience with that).

    Congrats on the FoodBuzz nomination! You definitely deserve it and my vote has been cast!

  6. Congrats on the nomination! I live near Coney Island, but have only had a corn dog once. This recipe looks like a lot of fun and 20 minutes in the kitchen isn't bad at all. This recipe actually fits in quite well with my handmade and homemade motto too:)
