“Moon Rock” Beer Battered Mini Corn Dog Bites

Moon Rocks Mini Corn Dog 3

Is the moon real? Many have theorized that the moon is a hollow object or some sort of space station. No scientific evidence exists to support the idea; seismic activity studies and other data collected since we began to orbit the Moon indicate that it has a thin crust, extensive mantle and small, dense core… overall it is much less dense than Earth.

The first body of work that mentions a hollow Moon was H. G. Wells’ 1901 novel The First Men in the Moon. In the 70s, two Soviet authors published a piece speculating that the Moon might be “the Creation of Alien Intelligence”. Since the late 1970s, the hypothesis has been endorsed by conspiracy theorists alike.

One thing is for sure, Moon Rocks are real. Many moon rocks were collected during the course of human exploration of the Moon, furthermore, moon rock are known to eject from the Moon’s surface and land on Earth as meteorites. We know this because we’ve seen it with our own big, round eyes…

Today we are bringing you these edible “Moon Rock” Mini Corn Dog Bites. We tried to mimic the thin crust of the moon and the dense core with this delicious homemade beer batter that coats the hotdogs perfectly. The Firestone Walker’s Dabbling In Decoction was the perfect beer for the recipe. It allows al the flavors to come through without overpowering the palette.

We hope you try and enjoy this recipe. As always, you can leave your questions, comments or concerns in the comments section below.

Ingredients
  

  • canola or peanut oil for frying
  • 1 cup flour (plus 1/4 cup, divided )
  • cup corn meal
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup plus 2 tbs of beer (we used Firestone Walker's Dabbling In Decoction American Pilsner)
  • Hotdogs (we sliced them into 1 ½ inches thick but length is up to you)
  • small skewers (or cut to preferred length)

Instructions
 

  • Pour oil into a pot, about 3-4 inches deep. Clip a cooking thermometer onto the side. Heat over medium high heat until the oil reaches between 350 and 375, adjust heat to stay in this temperature range.
  • In a bowl, combine 1 cup flour, corn meal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, stir to combine. Add the egg and the beer, stir until combined.
  • Pour the batter into a tall coffee mug, this will make dipping the corn dogs easier.
  • Skewer all of the mini corn dogs with wooden skewers. Put remaining 1/4 cup flour in a bowl. Roll the hot dogs in the flour, then brush off any excess flour.
  • Holding the skewer, dip the hot dog into the batter until submerged and coated. Slowly place the battered hot dog into the oil. Allow to fry in the oil until a dark brown, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a stack of paper towels to drain.
