Hot dog on a stick, what a comfort food! A hot dog deep fried with delicious batter and freshly dipped in ketchup & mustard. It’s a treat any day of the week, but most places use beef or turkey dogs and even if they offer a veggie dog, the batter usually has milk or eggs in it, or both. Well not anymore! I have veganized the good old hot dog on a stick!
First you’ll need a deep fryer, or a deep pot. Heat up your oil to approximately 375 degrees.
While the oil heats, take your veggie dogs and put them on a stick or a skewer. You want about 3/4 of the dog to have the support of the stick. Make sure the stick stays inside the dog and doesn’t poke out, and make sure the dog is securely on the stick.
Next, it’s time to make the batter. In a large bowl mix together 3/4 C unsweetened almond milk, 3/4 C cornmeal, 3/4 C flour, 1 Tbs baking powder, 3 Tbs sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt. Once the batter is mixed, pour into a tall drinking glass (make sure it’s larger than the veggie dog in both width and height). The glass makes covering the dogs in batter a lot easier.
Now spread some flour on a cutting board and take your veggie dogs on a stick and cover them in this flour. This helps the batter stick to the dogs. Roll them around in the mixture till fully covered as best as you can. Once they are covered in flour, take your veggie dogs and submerge them into your batter filled glass. Make sure the batter coats the entire veggie dog on a stick.
Once they’re nice and battered up, stick them into the deep fryer for about 8-10 mins or until nice and golden. Take out and let the dogs cool on a paper towel for about a minute or 2.
Now they’re ready to devour! Serve with some ketchup and mustard and dip away! Now you can have a good old corn dog whenever you’d like. Peace, Love, Grub!!
