Honey Corn Dogs

My 4 year old LOVES corn dogs. One can usually find them frozen in my house ALL THE TIME because 4 out of 5 days a week he asks for them. When I'm feeling a bit adventurous, I whip out this recipe and let the kids help with pour and mixing. Kids love to help in the kitchen!


1 lb. chicken or turkey hot dogs
4 cups vegetable oil
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. vegetable shortening
1/3 cup milk
1 egg
3 tablespoons of honey
8−10 wooden skewers


Bring 3 cups of water to boiling in a large saucepan. Add hot dogs and bring back to boiling. Remove from heat; cover 20 minutes. Pour enough oil to a 2−inch depth in a skillet and heat to 350 degrees. Combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt in a medium−size bowl and blend with fork.

Add shortening and cut in with fork until the size of small peas. Combine milk, honey and egg in a 1 cup measure. Stir into flour− cornmeal mixture. Pour mixture into a tall glass. Remove hot dogs from water and dry with paper towels. Insert skewer into the hot dog, and be sure to leave about 1 inch for handle. Dip hot dog into batter; let excess batter drip into glass. Drop into hot oil and fry 2 minutes, or until golden brown.
