  • 6 hot dogs cut in half
  • 12 lollipop sticks
  • vegetable oil for frying

For batter

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • In a large Dutch oven, pour the vegetable oil to a depth of 4 inches. Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.
  • Stick each half hot dog onto the lollipop sticks. You can use wooden skewers as well.
  • In a bowl, combine all the batter ingredients and whisk.
  • I found it easier to pour the batter in a long glass. Dip each hot dog into the cornmeal batter to completely cover the hot dog. Carefully place the hot dogs into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown, about 2 or 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels. I fried about 2 or 3 at a time. Repeat with remaining hot dogs and batter.
  • Serve with ketchup and/or mustard.


These mini corn dogs can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 - 3 days. You may find they get a bit soggy so I don't recommend storing them for much longer than that. Just zap in the microwave when ready to enjoy.
You can freeze these treats! Just freeze them individually on a baking sheet till frozen through, around 2 hours, and store in an airtight container for up to 1 month. Pop them in the oven at 350 F degrees till heated through  when ready to eat, please don't put them in a fryer to reheat as it is not safe and could cause the oil to spit back violently.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
