- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons cold butter

- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup prepared mustard
- 1 tablespoon molasses
- 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.

Reviews for Mini Corn Dogs
"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."
"Very good. I fixed these while great grandkids were visiting during Christmas from N.C. for lunch. I made a double batch following recipe exactly, since I was serving 10, including the parents and aunt & uncle. They wiped the platter clean."
"Oops, sorry about the bad math in my comment below. I cut 8 hot dogs into 3 pieces each for a total of 24 pieces."
"My family liked these a lot. I like the recipe because they are quick to fix and I don't need to fry them in oil. I was in a big hurry, so to save time, I divided the dough in 24 equal parts and patted each part into a circle with my fingers instead of rolling and cutting. Next time I will decrease the salt to 1/2 tsp, as the hot dogs added salt too. Like the other reviewer, I cut 8 hot dogs into 4 pieces each. Thanks for the fun recipe!"
"This is a great recipe!!! Super easy, mixed the dough in my food processor and I used turkey dogs to make it a little healthier :) The sauce is fantastic too!!"
"Can also be made with eighths of large hot dogs or sausages (cut in half so you have 2 pieces the size of small fingers and then cut each of those into 4ths length-wise)."
