It’s about time (okay, way past time) for another recipe. My excuse: all the food blogs I read put up pictures with their recipes. I did not have my camera cord. I could not put up pictures. Therefore, I could not share recipes.
Or something like that.
This week’s recipe: homemade corndogs. If you are surprised, that means you didn’t know that I currently have 35 hotdogs in my fridge. Tim and I are set for life. And we don’t even really like hotdogs.
Billy, this is all your fault. If you weren’t 6’7″ and I hadn’t planned to feed you supper only to have you realize at the last minute you couldn’t come to my brother’s wedding…I wouldn’t have a fridge full of hotdogs. Instead, you’d have a belly full.
Maybe your mom will make you corndogs:
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar (or less)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 cup olive oil
1/2 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
Combine all dry ingredients, then add oil, egg and milk to form a kneadable dough. Work the dough into a large ball and divide into 8 portions. Flatten each small portion between your palms and roll it around a hot dog. Place the hotdogs on a cookie sheet or in a 9×13 pan. Bake 400F for 20 minutes until done. Serve with lots of ketchup immediately or refrigerate/freeze and reheat.
These things are my new favorite way to eat a hot dog. Like ’em, Billy? Well next time, come to my brother’s wedding. Not that there will be a next time, actually.
Oh, and by the way…how many hot dogs CAN you eat?!?!
