Blue-Ribbon Corn Dog Bake

The Menu:
Blue Ribbon Corn Dog Bake
 

The Original Recipe:
It seems that I have lost the "at home all day" time to cook! Since we have moved to a new state, I have been extremely busy. It's one of those busy times that you sit and look back and wonder, "why did I ever wish for more to do?" because this is it! I am busy! I have made a few new meals over the past month, but I have forgotton to record them because we were running out the door for church or soccer practice or one of the many other things we have been doing since living here... This recipe comes out of 101 Cozy Casseroles from Gooseberry Patch. It's the cookbook that my recipe is published in! :D

Blue-Ribbon Corn Dog Bake

1/3 c. sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 T. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. cornmeal
1/2 T. butter, melted
3/4 c. milk
16-oz. pkg. hot dogs, sliced into bite size pieces

In a small bowl, mix together sugar and egg. In seperate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add Flour mixture to sugar mixture. Add Cornmeal, butter and milk stirring just to combine. Fold in hot dog pieces. Pour into a well-greased 8x8" baking dish. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serves 6

The Way I Made It My Own:
Now you could certainly make it as directed, above. I want to add, I made it only with 1/2 package hot dogs, but I do think the full package would be better. It puffs up a good bit, and there was a lot of dough that could have been filled with yummy hot dogs! I reduced the sugar and added some mustard. It was GREAT!!

1/4 c. sugar
1 egg beaten
1 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 T. Baking powder
1/2 tsp. course ground mustard
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 c. Cornmeal
1/2 T. butter, melted
3/4 c. milk
16 oz. pkg. hot dogs, sliced into bite size pieces

In a small bowl, mix together sugar, mustard and egg. In seperate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Add Flour mixture to sugar mixture. Add Cornmeal, butter and milk stirring just to combine. Fold in hot dog pieces. Pour into a well-greased 8x8" baking dish. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serves 6
