If you have kids, they’ll love these mini corn dogs recipes – and even adults will like it as well too! They’re especially a game day favorite for football games and other events. And believe it or not, they’re actually quite easy to make too!
Mini Corn Dogs
Number of Servings: 12
Prep Time: 10
Cooking Time: 15
1 package of mini sized hot dogs or kielbasa (usually found in the grocery aisle that also has regular sized hot dogs and kielbasa)
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups of milk
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
- To get started, you will first want to combine the flour, corn meal, sugar, salt, and baking powder together. Once these ingredients are sifted together, the next step is to stir in your egg until mixed through. Then add the milk and the vegetable oil and stir until the mixture is smooth. If need be, you may want to add a little more corn meal if the recipe seems to be too runny – if it seems too thick, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is achieved.
- Next, you will want to line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Since the corn dogs are a little bit drippy in the next step, this will help make clean up much easier!
- Once your pan is ready, take each mini hot dog and dip it into the corn bread mixture and then place it on the pan. You can space each mini corn dog pretty close together, but if need be you can also always go onto a second pan if you start to run out of space.
- You’ll want to bake these items in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for around 15-20 minutes, or until the muffin mix has baked through. (Oven temperatures and times will likely vary)
If you’re in a really big hurry, a quick way to make this is to instead use your favorite corn bread muffin mix and prepare as directed on the package instructions. You may need 1-2 packages depending on the size of the package and how many mini corn dogs you plan on making.
Now that you’re mini corn dog recipe is complete, the only other thing to consider is what condiments to serve with them! Some popular favorites include honey, Dijon mustard, BBQ sauce, and ketchup. If you want your corn dogs to be spicy or have a kick to the recipe (likely not for kids then however!) a fun thing to add into the corn bread mix is either 1/4 cup of diced jalapenos or green chilies. Salsa also makes a great dipper for these, whether you go with the regular or the spicy variety.
If you are looking for a more traditional fried recipe, instead of baking you can instead try deep frying them in a pan of hot canola oil. We prefer them baked, but they’re still good either way. 🙂
Hope you enjoy our mini corn dog recipe!
