Corn-free Corn dogs

I love how, some days, inspiration comes from the wierdest places.

That did not happen today. Today I found inspiration from the same place women have been getting inspiration from for the past 50 years.

The grocery store.

A couple of days ago, I was shopping and found my favorite brand of hot dogs were on sale!!

Now, I know some of you out there have problems with hot dogs. I don't. I love them. However I only buy the really good brands such as Jennie-o or Hebrew National (they answer to a higher authority, haha). Another option is going through a specialty meat store and buying sasauge or by ordering online at a organic meat store. My favorite is Blackwing Meats.

So I saw these hot dogs on sale, and immediately started craving corn dogs. I wasn't, however, craving corn, gluten, or something deep fried. So I started thinking about ways to adapt this recipe into a healthier alternative.

The dough is crunchy on the outside, but chewy inside. If made smaller these would make great party hors de' ouvers! Make sure to serve with a lot of mustard, which is my favorite condiment.

1 c. Tapioca Starch Flour

4 tsp Sugar

  6. Cut in half, then cut into 10 pieces each.
  7. Roll each peace into a 3 inch long 1 1/2 inch wide strip.
  8. Cut hot dogs in half, or whatever size best fits the dough.

  2. Let "dogs" rise on a warm oven for 14 minutes.
  3. Bake for15 minutes or until completely cooked all the way through and golden brown.

Scrumptious! I'd love to try these. I just bought little mini hot dogs, I could halve the batch and use it for those! Thanks for posting :)

Thank you for the great recipe! I just pulled my batch from the oven and sampled, and I can't believe how great they are! Lacking hot dogs, I made sausage rolls instead with a bit of ground pork and spices. This is going in my kid's lunch tomorrow, and I'll be making it again for the holidays! Thanks so much!!! <3
