Easy to Prepare Classic Corndog

A corndog is a street food that originated in the United States. It is a hotdog/sausage on a stick with a coated cornmeal batter and deep-fried. It is also popular in Argentina, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea. These countries have their own version of corndogs. 

I’ve never tried cooking homemade corndog because I don’t know where to buy cornmeal so over a decade ago, I just bought a hotdog waffle maker so I can make my own waffledog. I’ve used my waffle maker for few times and I totally forgot about it. A few years ago, I already let it go. 

I’ve watched a lot of Korean drama series and one of their favorite street foods is corndog. It even became more popular because of the StartUp drama series; Seo Dal-mi’s grandmother has her own corndog kiosk. I’m not really craving for Korean corndog but last year I discovered that San Miguel is offering frozen corndog so I immediately added it to my cart. 

Just like the Purefoods Shrimp Tempura, lagi sold out ito. Panay add ko lang sa cart but every time magcheck-out ako sa San Miguel Frozen and Chilled, sold out na. I always wait for vouchers or free shipping kasi kaya ang tagal magcheck-out. Hehehe! 

Anyway, this is available in the supermarket so I bought one pack last December so I can try it. You can choose Classic Corndog or Korean-Style Corndog but I only see the Cook Express Classic Corndog PHP272.75 at Landers. Ten pieces of corndog in one pack. I forgot about it so it was only last week that I’ve cooked this, hindi pa naman expired. 

Corndog Heating Instructions 

To thaw: 

1. Thaw inside the chiller overnight or 
2. Microwave 3 pieces of corndogs for 30 seconds at a medium setting. 

To reheat: 

1. Stovetop: Deep fry thawed corndogs for 3 minutes at 180C. Drain excess oil and serve. 
2. Oven Toaster: Preheat oven toaster to 175C. Place thawed corndogs inside the toaster and bake for 10 minutes. 

I was contemplating whether to use my air fryer or oven toaster for this pero I ended up using the oven toaster para konti hugasin. Hehehe! Also, I did not follow the temperature kasi feeling ko hindi umiinit yung oven toaster ko sa 175C so I chose the 200C temperature setting, and cooked it for 10 minutes. 

I can cook 5 pieces of corndog in one batch so we have instant merienda after 10 minutes. We are satisfied with the taste so yesterday, I bought two packs. :)
