  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornmeal
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 24 miniature hot dogs
  • HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE:
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon molasses

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients. Cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients until a soft dough forms; dough will be sticky.
  • Turn onto a generously floured surface; knead 6-8 times or until smooth, adding additional flour as needed. Roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/4-in. biscuit cutter. Fold each dough circle over a hot dog and press edges to seal. Place on greased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 450° until golden brown, 10-12 minutes. In an small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with corn dogs.

    These are very good and everyone really likes them. I cut regular sized hot dogs to make the mini-corn dogs, and I added a little piece of cheese to each one. I didn't make the honey-mustard sauce.

    My family loved these! I liked them because they were fairly easy to make and a great, healthier alternative to regular corn dogs. I used turkey dogs as another reviewer as suggested (8 of them cut into thirds). I didn't try the sauce, but will do so next time.

    These were very good. My grandchildren, who are corn dog connoisseurs, liked them very much. I used 1 cup of regular flour and 1 cup of cornmeal to make sure they were 'corn-doggy' enough. The mini-hot dogs I used were spicy which added to the entire flavor. I liked the honey mustard sauce, although the kids weren't going to touch it.

    I thought the breading was bland. It needed a little ground mustard or a pinch of cayenne. Maybe just a bit of sugar. Ooo, or shredded cheese. Yep, that would have helped. But my kids ate them and they were simple to throw together (although I needed lots of extra flour to get the dough to where I could barely work with it). Overall, they were fair.

    Very good. I fixed these while great grandkids were visiting during Christmas from N.C. for lunch. I made a double batch following recipe exactly, since I was serving 10, including the parents and aunt & uncle. They wiped the platter clean.
