Corn dogs are a great meal for the whole family to enjoy. I came across this recipe on Gluten Freely. This recipe was surprisingly delicious and fairly easy to make.

Oil for deep frying
1/2 cup gluten free cornmeal
1/2 cups Bisquick Gluten Free mix

Sticks, if desired

Directions
1. In deep fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 3-inches oil to 375°.
2. In medium bowl, mix cornmeal, Bisquick and sugar. Beat in egg and milk with whisk. Batter consistency will be of thick pancake batter. If needed, add extra Bisquick mix to thicken.  Place hot dogs on sticks, or cut into bite-sized pieces. Roll hot dogs in batter until covered.
3. Fry in hot oil 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Hot dogs may need to be flipped once. Drain on paper towel-lined plate. This recipe makes enough batter for 1 package hot dogs. Serve with ketchup and mustard. Enjoy!
