  • Insert an ice-pop stick into one end of each sausage, leaving a 1 1/2-inch handle. Dust with flour; tap off excess. Using handle, rotate each sausage over bowl as you spoon batter to coat evenly. Place on sheet; bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Using a spatula, reapply batter that has slipped onto sheet. Return to oven; bake until golden, 20 minutes. Serve with ketchup and mustard, if desired.

The first one ever from MS recipes that i didnt like, it was very dry and bland.. i wished i put more sugar in it. it was a little messy getting the batter on the dogs but got stuck fast and stayed on and didnt need to fix it after 5 min.. but i dont think i will do it again..

I was a little disappointed in this one. It looked great and sounded like a good fun lunch idea that was better than fried corn dogs, bot the batter was so runny it didn't even stay on the dog. I even cut a bit of the milk out after hearing the other comments. Maybe I'll try something else again soon- I was thinking of chilling the batter next time, or freezing the dogs.

Found the batter too sticky to put on the dogs very well, was big mess but once got a layer on, it stayed put.. More like a corn muffin over a hotdog than a corn dog, little cakey. Added more sugar because like batter a bit sweet, but 3+ tsp was needed. Also added more flour but then the batter wouldn't stick to the dog & made a weird coating. Still on the search for a great recipe, but might try this one again.

Can anyone tell me what the consistency of the batter is suppose to be? I live in a very dry climate and I can't get the batter to stick to the sausage. Should I add more milk, oil or another liquid to help?

Sorry about my comments which get cut off..I was trying to tell you how good these were using this sausage since they are juicy with the cheddar cheese melted inside...even better than state fair corn dogs. Also, I sprayed my foiled covered sheet and the "dogs" with butter flavored spray

I think the secret to this recipe is using a good favored sausage. I used Johnsonville Smoked "Turkey with Cheddar" cheese sausage which turned out perfect for this recipe. By the time the cornbread was cooked...the sausage was hot

I've made these as "corn dog muffins": line muffin tin with cupcake liners, fill 2/3-full with batter, insert 1-inch cut pieces of hot dog or sausage into batter, bake for approx. 20-25 minutes. Kids of all ages love 'em just as much!

I made these for my family and everyone really liked them! I also used all-beef hot dogs. I agree that they could have had a little more flavor, though. Maybe I'll experiment and tweak them next time. Definitely will make them again though.

The batter on these turned out really dry and bland. I'm going to try and tweak the recipe.

These turned out really good. I used beef sausages instead of chicken.

I use all beef hot dogs instead and my daughter loves it. I've made these twice. They're almost as good as Fletchers! Don't forget to soak the sticks to prevent them from burning.

I can't wait to try it. I prefer bake than fry things, since I got a very bad burn frying something, I am glad we can have this option now. I am not scare of the looking aspect. Some times we just have to decide between delicious or nutritious.

What didn't you like? You said it was the grossest looking but how did it taste? I find that looks are not always as important as the taste. If you like corn dogs then I don't think it should matter. I will have to try them I do like corn dogs? Why not try another type of smoked sausage it might make a difference.
