Poppable, sharable, and your new favorite appetizer. We love these Traeger Baked Corn Dog Bites. They’re sweet and savory, and the cornbread dough is wrapped around bite-sized hot dogs!
1 cup milk at room temp
4 tsp Active dry yeast
1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups All-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow corn meal
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 egg, lightly beaten
15 mini hot dogs
1 tbsp dried mince garlic
1 tbsp coarse salt
Ketchup & mustard for serving
When ready to cook, set the Traeger to 375℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
Combine milk, yeast and sugar in a bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes or until it starts to foam.
Then add oil, salt, cayenne pepper, mustard powder, baking soda, corn meal, all- purpose flour. Mix with a spoon until combined then use your hands to knead into a dough.
Transfer dough to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap and set aside for about 45 minutes- until dough rises and doubles in size.
Remove dough from bowl and divide into 15 pieces. On a working surface dusted with flour, use a rolling pin to roll out each piece of dough into 3” x 3” pieces. Place each hot dog in the middle of the sheet of dough. Roll it in the dough and press edges to seal to make 15 mini corn dog bites.
Transfer corn dog bites into a baking pan lined with parchment paper and brush each bite lightly with beaten egg. Sprinkle each bite with dried minced garlic and salt.
Bake in Traeger until golden brown- about 30 min.
Serve with ketchup and mustard or dipping sauce of your choice. Enjoy!
