Baked Corn Dogs

I thought these were a bit of a let-down, but I'm posting them anyway because I think they have potential -- just with a different corn bread covering.

I think I'd use the cornbread recipe I love, rather than this one. You'll probably have to lessen the amount of liquid in the cornbread recipe so it sticks to the hot dogs, but I found the recipe below to be a bit bland for my tastes.

It's still a fun idea, and I'd like to try making them again!

Baked Corn Dogs
(Laura's Home Cookin' - adapted from Martha Stewart)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (plus more for dusting the hot dogs)
2/3 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons sugar
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2/3 cup milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
4 precooked turkey hot dogs (I used the real deal, old fashioned hot dogs in casing. mmm)
Directions
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray, set aside.
- In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
- Make a hole in the center and then add milk, eggs, and oil. Mix well.
- Dust hot dogs with flour.
- Coat hot dogs with corn meal mixture (it helps to do this with popsicle sticks). Bake until golden, 20 minutes.
- Serve with ketchup if desired.
