Recipe courtesy Sandra Lee, 2008
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup pickled hot peppers, diced
1/4 cup pickled sweet peppers, diced
For Corn Dogs:
1 (8.5-ounce) package corn muffin mix
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 package cocktail franks
Vegetable oil, for frying
20 (6-inch) wooden skewers
In a small bowl combine ketchup and pickled peppers. Mix well and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine egg, corn muffin mix, garlic powder, onion powder and milk. In a separate shallow dish add flour. Insert wooden skewers half way into cocktail franks.
Heat oil to 375 degrees F in a deep-fryer. Dredge each cocktail frank in flour, dust off excess then dip into cornmeal batter. Fry 2 to 3 corn dogs at a time for about 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm with the relish.
