1 cup corn meal
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp Slap Ya Mama® seasoning
½ tsp salt
1¼ cups buttermilk
2 Tbs vegetable oil
8 all beef hot dogs each cut into 3 pieces (I used Ball Park® Beef Franks)
Cheddar cheese cut into 1/4" strips
2 + cups vegetable oil for frying
Heat about 2 cups of vegetable oil in a medium heavy bottom pan at 375°.
For the Corn Dog Bites
Cut each hot dog into 3 pieces, set aside.
Cut a few slices of cheddar cheese and then slice each into about 1/4" thick and the length of each hot dog piece.
Take a bigger size straw and poke it through the middle of each little hot dog to make a hole.
Stuff a slice of cheddar cheese in each hot dog, the bigger the hole the better. Set aside.
Once all pieces are stuffed with cheese, time to make the batter.
For the Batter
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk dry ingredients together.
In a small bowl, mix egg, milk and oil together then add to dry ingredients. Stir until just moistened.
Prior to dipping hot dogs into the batter, make sure to dry each one off with a paper towel.
Next, dip each piece into the batter, covering it completely and then adding it immediately to the heated oil with a spoon.
Cook until golden brown on all sides and then remove and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Fry about 6 at a time for even frying.
