Growing up, we used to look forward to Corn Dogs at our town fair. They were fried and they were delicious. But a DIY corn dogs at home are easy, healthy, and a great kid-friendly dinner to serve up.


  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ teaspoon stone ground mustard
  • 6 TBSP cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 6 TBSP milk (I often need to add a bit more if dough seems dry)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 hot dogs, cut in half


  1. In a food processor, add flour, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, mustard, milk.  Turn your motor on and add butter a little at a time.
  2. Process until mixed and butter is completely cut into dough, then turn out onto a floured work surface (I like to use parchment or wax paper for easier cleanup and less sticking).
  3. Using a floured rolling pin, roll your dough out until about 1/8-1/4 inch thick.  You don’t want it too thick.
  4. Cut a rectangle and place your hot dog in the center.  Wrap hot dog and put stick into the flat end of the hot dog.
  5. Bake at 375° for about 15-20 minutes, flipping halfway through.  Enjoy!
