I got this recipe in an email recipe newsletter. These are a healthier version of regular corn dogs because they are baked instead of deep fried. I use the thick wieners, the ones they sell in the summertime for roasting over a campfire. I have also used leftover cooked sausage which was really yummy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  4. Make a well in center; add milk, eggs, and oil. Mix just until combined.
  5. Insert a stick (I use Popsicle sticks) into one end of each wiener, leaving enough out to hold on to without burning skin.
  6. Dust with flour; tap off excess.
  7. Using handle, rotate each sausage over bowl as you spoon batter to coat evenly.
  8. Place on sheet; bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven.
  9. Using a spatula, reapply batter that has slipped onto sheet.
  10. Return to oven; bake until golden, 20 minutes.
  11. Serve with dipping sauce of choice.

The batter was too thick making it impossible to coat the hot dogs. I made a second batch, reducing the amount of flour and cornmeal but the batter ended up sliding off while cooking. When I took the corn dogs off the baking sheet, the batter seperated from the hot dog.

The batter is very thick for these but I spooned it on well and baked as per instructed and really liked these. I have added them to my recipe book.

Didn't really care for this. It has too much cornmeal and was grainy tasting. The batter was too thick also and I didn't want to thin it too much or it wouldn't have stuck to the wieners. I love the idea of baked though!
