Corn Dog Waffles

When it comes to food, pleasing my husband is as simple as a bun with a plain hamburger slapped on it. No, there’s no need for anything fancy or green on it. Maybe a slice of cheese.

All American is the best way to describe his palate. Or child-like. Whichever you prefer call it. I do like to pick on him, but he has come a long way. When I met him, he didn’t like mexican food! I know, right? Who in their right mind doesn’t think they like mexican food. My point exactly. Turns out it’s because he thought it didn’t taste good, yet he had never tried it! Now he craves it and it’s one of his favorites.

When I’m not getting hubby to try new flavors and cuisines, I do let him have a shot at “creating” our meals. One of his latest….homemade baked corn dogs. What else would I have expected?

We spent a few tries working with difficult batters and trying to keep the batter on the dogs. A few different approaches yielded nothing but hot dogs falling out of batter and shattered corn dog dreams.

That is until, I was preparing breakfast one morning. I thought why not make corn dog waffles instead? Use the same batter as cornbread but lay the hot dogs inside the batter. A light bulb went off in our heads! After such determination with trial and error (mostly error), we had finally figured out a way to have baked homemade corn dogs instead of fried. After all, that was the whole point.

I have a bit of honesty for you. I didn’t make the batter from scratch. I used a store brand cornbread mix which really made my life easier. I’m not ashamed. You don’t have to be either. You are free to use whatever means of cornbread that you choose.

Addie tried to put syrup on these and was unpleasantly surprised at how it tasted with the waffle part. I then directed her to the ketchup and mustard which make a much better complement to the hot dogs.

My whole family (including myself) really loved these. They made a great meal for a busy weeknight.

Corn Dog Waffles

Corn Dog Waffles

Forget about corn dogs, try Corn Dog Waffles instead!

Ingredients

  • 1 Package Cornbread Mix (or homemade)
  • 1 Package Hotdogs, cut into 4ths

Method

  1. Mix cornbread according to package directions. Preheat waffle iron.
  2. Lay pieces of hot dogs directly on waffle maker to brown a little.
  3. Then pour cornbread batter over the hot dogs making sure not to let it run off the sides.
  4. Let cook until brown and remove.

Notes

The key is to make sure you don't overfill the waffle iron wells. I learned this the hard way when 2 of my first ones ran over the side.

You don't have to heat the hot dogs alone on the grill. I just found it necessary since the hot dogs are cold when you start.
