I haven't posted a recipe for Tasty Thursday in quite some time now. Honestly, most weeks I just forgot. And sometimes there was a theme, and I just couldn't think of a fitting recipe to post. But I'm posting one today. And just maybe I'll get back to doing this weekly again.
The recipe I'm posting is a new one I made for dinner tonight. It is very easy and kid-friendly. And quite yummy too!
This came from the Southern Living 1993 Annual Recipes cookbook.
(The only difference is I'm calling them hot dogs instead of frankfurters!)
Corn Dog Bites
1 cup self-rising flour
2/3 cup cornmeal
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 package hot dogs
Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine 2 tablespoons oil, egg, and buttermilk; stir into flower mixture, mixing well. Cut each hot dog into 5 pieces. Dip each piece into batter, coating completely. (Use wooden picks to aid in dipping.)
Pour oil to depth of 3 to 4 inches into a Dutch oven; heat to 375 degrees. Fry pieces until golden, turning one; drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with mustard and/or ketchup, if desired.
