  1. In a large bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients until a soft dough forms.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead 6-8 times or until smooth. Roll out to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/4-in. biscuit cutter. Fold each dough circle over a hot dog and press edges to seal (dough will be sticky). Place on greased baking sheets.
  3. Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. In an small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with corn dogs. Yield: 2 dozen.

"Decided to try these because it had great reviews. I took the advice of others, did more cornmeal less flour, add some mustard and a little sugar, and cheese inside. Me and my kids did not think these were very good. Too much Bread and bread taste. Bland. I think I will stick to traditional corn dogs."

"These are very good and everyone really likes them. I cut regular sized hot dogs to make the mini-corn dogs, and I added a little piece of cheese to each one. I didn't make the honey-mustard sauce."

"My family loved these! I liked them because they were fairly easy to make and a great, healthier alternative to regular corn dogs. I used turkey dogs as another reviewer as suggested (8 of them cut into thirds). I didn't try the sauce, but will do so next time."

"These were very good. My grandchildren, who are corn dog connoisseurs, liked them very much. I used 1 cup of regular flour and 1 cup of cornmeal to make sure they were 'corn-doggy' enough. The mini-hot dogs I used were spicy which added to the entire flavor. I liked the honey mustard sauce, although the kids weren't going to touch it."

"I thought the breading was bland. It needed a little ground mustard or a pinch of cayenne. Maybe just a bit of sugar. Ooo, or shredded cheese. Yep, that would have helped. But my kids ate them and they were simple to throw together (although I needed lots of extra flour to get the dough to where I could barely work with it). Overall, they were fair."
