Right Out Of The Oven Corn Dogs

  • Yield: 7 corn dogs

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baby Bam
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese (about 2 ounces)
  • 14 cocktail sausages, bought fully cooked

Directions

  • Make sure the oven rack is in the center position and preheat the oven to 400?F.
  • Lightly grease the corn-shaped wells of the corn stick pan with 1 tablespoon of the oil, using either a pastry brush or your fingers. Place the pan in the oven to preheat (the pan should heat in the oven for at least 15 minutes).
  • While the pan is heating, put the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil, the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, Baby Bam, salt, buttermilk, egg, and cheese in a mixing bowl and stir with a fork until just combined.
  • Using oven mitts or pot holders, carefully remove the hot pan from the oven and spoon about 3 tablespoons of the batter into each well. (This will use up only half the batter.) Lay 2 cocktail sausages down in the center of each well.
  • Spoon the remaining batter into each well, dividing evenly among them to completely cover the sausages.
  • Bake until golden brown, about 18 minutes.
  • Using the mitts or pot holders, remove the pan from the oven and allow to rest for 3 to 5 minutes before turning the corn dogs out onto a wire rack. Serve hot, with desired condiments for dipping.
  • Be extra careful not to touch the hot pan when placing the batter and cocktail sausages in the wells!
