Homemade Corn Dogs

Healthy Fact of the Day

Homemade Corn Dogs offer a fun and nostalgic treat that can be made with wholesome ingredients. By using whole-grain cornmeal and lean hot dogs, you can enjoy a lighter version of this classic fairground favorite.



  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 lean hot dogs
  • 8 wooden skewers or popsicle sticks
  • Vegetable oil, for frying



  1. In a mixing bowl, combine yellow cornmeal, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, and vegetable oil.

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. The batter should be thick enough to coat the hot dogs.

  4. Insert a wooden skewer or popsicle stick into each hot dog, leaving enough for a handle.

  5. Pour vegetable oil into a deep skillet or pot until it’s about 2 inches deep. Heat the oil to 350°F (175°C).

  6. Dip each hot dog into the batter, ensuring an even coating.

  7. Carefully place the coated hot dogs into the hot oil, a few at a time, and fry until golden brown (about 3-4 minutes).

  8. Use a slotted spoon to remove the corn dogs from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

  9. Repeat the process until all corn dogs are fried.

  10. Let the corn dogs cool slightly before serving.
