Yes, You read it right! Potato corn dogs. I know, I know, you are probably thinking, corn dogs are made with corn!!!! But I wanted to try something new. And decided to make these potato corn dogs. Go with me here.
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 30-35 minutes
Chill Time 10 minutes
600 grams potatoes- peeled and boiled
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
5 large/ 12 small sausages
5 slices of cheese
2 eggs- beaten
Oil- for deep frying
Mustard and ketchup- to serve
Peel and boil the potatoes. Drain the water and set them aside.
Mash the potatoes until smooth. Add salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
Make diagonal scores in the sausages. You will get a cross hatch pattern in the sausages. Insert a skewer 3/4 of the way through the length of the sausages. Remove it again.
Place 2 tablespoons oil in a pan and fry the sausages on all sides until golden brown. Remove from the oil and set them aside.
Lay a piece of parchment paper on a wooden chopping board. This prevents the potatoes from sticking to the chopping board.
Roll the sausages in the cheese slices. Set them aside. Then spread some of the mashed potatoes on the parchment paper. At this point we are going to wrap the mashed potatoes around the sausage. Form it into a cylinder shape. Repeat with the rest of the sausages.
Dip the corn dogs in the beaten egg then cover in the panko breadcrumbs. Press the crumbs into the corn dogs. Make sure they are properly covered in the corn dogs.
Insert the skewer back into the corn dog.
Free the corn dogs for 5 minutes.
Heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a shallow frying pan to 170c. Place only 2 of the corn dogs in the pan and fry them for 5-7 minutes, continuously turning them so they are evenly golden on all sides. Remove from the oil and blot on kitchen paper.
Serve with ketchup and mustard.
