makes 1 dozen

1 {14-oz} package andouille smoked sausage-style hot dog links
Wooden coffee sticks
1/2 cup plain yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup ap flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Creole seasoning
1 egg
3/4 cup whole buttermilk
2 Tbsp honey
Vegetable oil
Creole Ketchup

Cut each hot dog in half.
Pat the hot dogs dry with paper towels.
Insert a stick into the cut end of each hot dog.

Whisk together the cornmeal, the flour, the baking powder, the baking soda
& the Creole seasoning in a large bowl.
Whisk together the egg, the buttermilk & the honey.
Whisk the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a 4-quart sauce pan with tall sides.
Attach a thermometer to the side of the pan & heat over Medium, 340 to 350 degrees.

Dip each hot dog into the batter coating well.
Shake off excess & fry in hot oil until golden brown, about 2 minutes.

to avoid excessive browning
i dropped the temperature to hold steady at 340 degrees
as long as the corn dogs are floating as they fry
you will not experience excessive grease in the final cooked food

if the oil gets too hot
add a little extra oil from the bottle to drop the temperature quickly

for best results
fry about 3 corn dogs at time

Drain on paper towels.
Repeat with the remaining hot dogs.
Serve with Creole Ketchup.

rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickSweet & Salty Snack Mix Bars
makes 2 dozen

4 cups cinnamon rice squares cereal
3 cups pretzels twists, divided
2 cups scoop-size corn chips
1 cup light corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
1 {10-oz} package bittersweet chocolate morsels
1 {10-oz} package peanut butter morsels
3/4 cup M&M’s

Combine the cereal, 2 cups of the pretzels & the corn chips in a large bowl.

Stir together the corn syrup & the sugar in a 4-qt saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring on occasion, over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat.
Working carefully & quickly, stir in the peanut butter until smooth.

Pour the peanut butter mixture over the cereal mixture.
Fold together until the pieces are well coated.

Spread into a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan,
pressing down lightly & evenly.

you’ll want this layer to be relatively compact 

Sprinkle the remaining 1 cup of pretzels over the warm mixture,
pressing into the layer to adhere.

Microwave the chocolate morsels & the peanut butter morsels in a glass bowl
on HIGH power, 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 20 seconds.
Blend well until melted & smooth.

the top will be more glossy if you do not over heat this mixture
take your time with this step

Drizzle over the pretzel layer in the pan.
Sprinkle with the M&M’s.


Let the bars stand at room temperature until the chocolate mixture is firm,
about 2 hours.

Cut into squares.
Cover & store at room temperature.

Note: I used Cinnamon Chex Cereal & Fritos Scoops Corn Chips.

The 411
you won’t believe how easy & fun these are to make

the batter

Honey adds a touch of sweetness.
The consistency is similar to a thin cornbread batter.

the dipping

I used wooden coffee sticks with blunt tips.
Look for them on the coffee aisle in your corner grocery store.

Make sure the dogs are good & dry so the batter clings well.
Lightly tap any excess before dropping into the hot oil.

Once the batter is combined, pour into a drinking glass for easy dipping.

You will have a little batter remaining once all of the hot dogs are coated.

Expect the coating to be lighter than a traditional corndog…
A little tempura in nature.

the frying

I lowered the oil temperature from a traditional range to a slightly lower heat.
This will keep the honey-kissed batter from browning too quickly.

Gently spin the dogs while cooking for even browning.
Long-handled tongs work well for this task & for removing from the oil.

the hot dogs

I used Johnsonville New Orleans Brand Andouille Smoked Sausage.
Try with any of your favorites for equally delicious results.
