Easter dinner gets a lot of attention. With the ham and the potatoes and the green beans and the buttery rolls and all that. But what do you eat for lunch on Easter Sunday? PB & J?

No no no no…. I’ve got something much much better for you.

I grew up eating those frozen corn dogs you can find at places like Sam’s Club and Costco and I won’t lie – I love em’. I used to make what we call “fry sauce” here in Utah and dunk those babies to my heart’s content. But I never dreamed I could or would ever make crispy golden corn dogs at home – without even touching a deep fryer!

The giant corn dogs at fairs and carnivals, let’s be honest, they’re pretty much heavenly. But maybe not so good on the calorie side of things so I try to keep my deep-fried ever lovin’ corn dog days to a minimum. But when you bake them at home, there’s no limit – the joy can continue day and night anytime you wish. Adults, kids, they all love corn dogs. They’re an instant crowd pleaser you know?

Just take a look at that golden crust – you can make that with Bisquick and cornmeal! Genius right? I know. I think it’s pretty awesome too.

So when you’re planning your Easter Sunday dinner, don’t forget your lunch plans – and consider some homemade baked corndogs for a change of pace. You’ll be glad you did!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bisquick
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 7 lean hot dogs, cut in half crosswise
  • 14 wooden sticks
  • dipping sauce (I used ketchup and mustard)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the Bisquick, cornmeal, salt and ground mustard. Cut in the butter with two forks (or you can use a pastry blender or your fingers) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the milk and honey with a spoon or your hands until combined.
  • Place dough on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper. Sprinkle some more flour over the dough and top with another piece of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Push a wooden stick up the center of the cut end of each hot dog half. Place the dog on the dough and cut a square that is big enough to wrap around it. Use your hands to gently press the dough around each hot dog sealing both ends and any open areas.
  • Place corn dogs on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with dipping sauces (such as mustard and ketchup or other favorites).

I used to love hot dogs when I was younger. Nowadays, I rarely eat them because I don’t eat beef; however, they do make turkey hot dogs. I’ll have to give these a try with the turkey. 🙂

    Ooh – I’d totally try that!!!

As yummy as these look, I don’t think my hubby and I could eat 7 each 🙂 do you know if these freeze ok??

    Ha! Really, you can’t eat seven?? 😉 I haven’t tried freezing them myself but I can’t see why there would be any issues!!

There is nothing better than a fresh deep fried corn dog from the fair. Unless you can get them to taste even close to as good without all that grease. I’m thinking my family will be thanking you.

Uhm.. thanks! What a great idea and a straight forward recipe. Looking forward to give it a try!

Corn dogs are one of my all-time favorite bad-for-you foods, there’s really nothing like them. However, I rarely eat them, because, well, you described exactly why. Got to try these!! Oh, and fry sauce? Discovered that when I visited Utah years ago, and has now become one of my favorite condiments.

    Isn’t fry sauce the most amazing thing EVER? My family is from California originally but it only took us about 0.7 seconds to catch on to the fry sauce tradition – I could drink it!! With fries. 🙂
