My kids love corn dogs. Of course here we don’t call them corn dogs though we call the Pogos. I think that’s the brand but it’s just always been what we’ve called these little fried goodies on a stick.
However, have you seen all that is in the store bought goodies on a stick? Well, they aren’t the best for you (okay, so they aren’t anyway) but if my kids want to have a delicious fried wiener on a stick I’d rather make them and know what they are eating than buy them plus it’s much cheaper to make your own!
These have been my kids favorites for a while now, I love making them and they are pretty easy!
- 8 Chicken Sausages (breakfast work best with mini)
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 Egg
- ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
- 1 cup Gluten-Free Cornmeal
- 1 cup Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
- 1 ½ tsp. Baking Powder
- 2 ½ tbsp. Sugar
- 1 tbsp. Salt
- Canola Oil
- Wooden Rods
- Add oil to stove top pot, just deep enough to fully cover corn dog. Heat on high.
- Use a whisk or fork to mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and sugar in large mixing bowl.
- Combine milk, egg, and cinnamon in small mixing bowl. Whisk.
- Pour milk mixture onto flour mixture. Stir well, until contents are distributed evenly. Let set at room temperature for 20 minutes.Use a paper towel to pat chicken sausage dry.
- Rub a small amount of flour onto each sausage. This will help the batter to stick to the sausage.
- Insert wooden rods into sausage.
- Pour batter into a tall, narrow drinking glass. Holding the stick, dip each chicken sausage into the glass and fully coat with batter.
- Fry each chicken sausage corn dog in heated oil for 2 to 4 minutes (rotating as needed). Remove from oil. Set each corn dog onto a paper towel covered plate (this will help to absorb excess oils).
- Serve immediately.
- Best when paired with cinnamon icing, to compliment the apple maple flavor, but you can
always use the classic ketchup and/or mustard.
