Homemade Stick-free Halal Corn Dogs

Homemade Stick-free Halal Corn Dogs

My kids love corn dogs and thankfully I have been able to find some versions that are ok for them to eat.  The problem however is that they’re EXPENSIVE!  I’ve got an almost 8 year old that would and could eat 2-3 corn dogs for a meal.

Then there’s that pesky stick that boys always seem to;

a) see how far they can get into their mouth or,

b) turn into a weapon while eating OR,

c) turn into a weapon after eating.  

I really just don’t need to have that fight with them.  Instead of breaking the bank and my patience with expensive store-bought corn dogs, I made some! Really, they’re not hard at all!  This is especially great for making halal corn dogs to pop into lunches for school.

Where do you find halal hot dogs?

If you’re like us, we lived somewhere in the US that it was very hard to find any halal food. For us, we often used kosher hot dogs like Hebrew National in place of something labeled halal. We don’t eat anything with pork, but are ok with this.

Some other brands that make halal hotdogs include;

  • Al Safa
  • Boxed Halal (and lots of other products too)
  • Midamar Halal

Stick-free Halal Corn Dogs

Yield: 12 muffins
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Quit buying expensive corn dogs in the store and make them yourself!

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe of your favorite cornbread mix (or boxed mix)
  • 1 package of halal turkey, beef, or chicken hot dogs

Instructions

Mix together the corn bread and butter or spray a muffin tin pan so that the "dogs" won't stick.  Cut each hot dog into thirds and place in the bottom of each tin.  

If you want to make them more meaty - go ahead and use more hot dog!

Pour the cornbread batter to fill each tin 2/3 of the way.  

Bake on 350F for 15-18 minutes, just until the muffins start to brown.

Serve right away with dipping sauces or allow to cool, toss into a freezer bag and pop into the freezer.  You can pull them out and reheat whenever you want!

Notes

I found that adding the hot dogs first and covering them with batter covers them up better than pushing them in after.

Wow...what a good idea! I do like corn dogs, but finding halal ones or ones that are not loaded with fat/calories is almost impossible. I like that these are in little packages that I can take to work too and control to some extent how they are made. These are going to be fun for lunches!
