Today I’ll show you my Corn Dogs recipe. Corn Dogs are a great finger food, perfect when guests are coming or a children’s birthday party is coming up.

Serve the Corn Dogs just as a first course at the barbecue. The sausages in the corn dough can be easily prepared and kept warm in the oven. You can also briefly place the fried sausages on the grill in the batter and conjure up a light smoky aroma. 

The dough-coated sausages are a well-known dish from the USA. In detail they are Corn Dogs sausages in a corn dough casing, fried in hot fat. The batter is a variation of our traditional wine or beer batter as we know it for baked vegetables.

Here are my tips for perfect Corn Dogs and the recipe with many step by step photos. Questions I answer via the comment function, wish you good luck!

1. Which Sausages to use for Corn Dogs?

I have prepared my Corn Dogs with Frankfurter sausages or Viennese sausages.

You could also bake a Nurnberger sausage, a veal sausage or even raw sausages in a dough coat

Try vegetarian sausages, they taste just as delicious!

The thinner the sausage, the better, thick sausages have to swim too long in the deep fryer.

2. Corn Dog Dough, what’s important?

The corn dog dough needs volume and the dough gets that from egg and baking powder.

The baking powder causes the dough to rise in the hot fat during frying, giving it an airy appearance.

Sweet paprika brings a gentle, sharp spice to the dough.

I always add some sugar to the dough, so the baked dough gets a light, wonderful caramel aroma.

3. Which Sauces fit with Corn Dogs

For children you serve the Corn Dogs best with tomato ketchup.

We have tried mustard sweet, mustard hot, chili sauce and sweet and sour sauce with the Corn Dogs, in addition a…

Sour cream sauce: Mix a cup of sour cream with 3 pinches of salt, 3 pinches of pepper and 1 tbsp lemon juice.

Onion honey mustard sauce: 100 g Dijon mustard, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 piece onion diced mix well.

Tastes delicious and is children’s birthday party – suitable!
