There comes a time in one’s life where it’s ABSOLUTELY necessary to make homemade corndogs. Let me just put it out there that I do realize that I just publicized that Molly and I researched recipes, purchased ingredients, and set time aside in our day to make, yes that’s right, corndogs.
For those of you who do not appreciate the occasional Cookout late-night or delicious carnival treat, I don’t think you’re going to enjoy this one. But since I gave up sweets for Lent, this recipe was one of our indulgent outlets. Also, we made these for a crowd and not just for ourselves
Luckily, we found this yeast-based recipe from KohlerCreated that makes a **hEaLtHiEr** corndog (whatever that means) because these are baked and not deep-fried. While others brought cookies and guac (equally as delicious), we went out of the box, as can be expected of us, and brought a gourmet snack. Also, this is just one of the most fun recipes to make with friends. One, you get to play with dough and wrap little hot dogs up like they are in a cocoon and two, they are just a fun food!

a mix of brown sugar, olive oil, and cornmeal before you add in the yeast+milk mixture
milk and cornmeal mix – the yeast and warm milk mixture sits for a few mins before adding to cornmeal
FAST FORWARD: after kneading the dough for a few mins, we let it sit aside for 1 hour. If I were making this again, I would let it rise longer so the dough gets puffier. Then we rolled it out to cut into little strips for each mini-dog
Yes I realize this looks bizarre, but you baste them in an egg wash after wrapping up all the dogs….and here ya go
