Gluten Free Corndog : The Best Ever!

Gluten Free Corn Dog

I know that I have posted a Gluten Free Corndog recipe in the past.  That has been my go to recipe for months now.  Not any more.

Since I got back from the Betty Crocker Kitchens I have been a busy little bee in the kitchen.  I came home and found Gluten Free Bisquick at Publix.  After making the best Gluten Free Pancakes that I ever tasted, I vowed to come up with more recipes.  Betty, you can hire me at anytime 😉

At 5 PM I had 3 little ones asking what was for dinner.  After a busy day of cleaning I had forgotten to take something out of the freezer.  So, CornDogs it is.  I started to drag out my gazillion ingredients and then I remembered the GF Bisquick.  Hmmm….I wonder.  So, I threw my concoction together, and began frying.

I knew I was in trouble when after round one, they were asking if they could have another, and another.  So, I asked, –because being Mom I hadn’t eaten yet– “Are they better than the ones I made before?”

In the nicest, most polite way possible my 9 year old said, “ Well, I really like everything you cook.  And the old corn-dogs were good, but these are way better!”

So, the verdict is in!  If you have a child or know someone on a GFCF diet pass this one on.  They will thank you!

Gluten Free Corndogs

Gluten Free Corn Dogs Printable Version

  • 1 cup Gluten Free Corn Meal
  • 1-1 ½ cup Gluten Free Bisquick
  • 2 eggs(beaten)
  • 1 TBSP Sugar
  • 1 cup Milk (you can use soy, almond, etc)
  • Hot Dogs
  • Sticks (optional)


Heat the oil for frying to about 350 degrees.  I used my Dutch oven.  You could use a fryer, or any method you choose.

In a bowl add Corn Meal, Sugar, and 1 cup Gluten Free Bisquick. Stir together. Whisk in 2 eggs, and 1 cup of milk.  The batter will be the consistency of thick pancake batter.  If needed add extra bisquick to thicken.

Now place the hot dogs onto sticks, or cut into bite sized pieces.  I cut my hot dogs in half to make kid sized corn dogs.  Really, it is up to you.

Once the hot dogs are prepared, roll them in batter until they are covered.  Quickly drop them into the oil and allow them to fry about 3-5 minutes until golden brown.  You may need to flip them once.

Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.  Serve.

Makes enough batter for 1 package of Hot Dogs.

    Interesting! My mom and I were at the fair last month and talking about all the crap people eat at the fair. Then my mom started talking about a healthier version of a corn dog. We both decided a turkey hot dog would be a good choice but was stuck on what the outer part would be.

    Great post!

    We use the electric corn dog maker to make gf corn dogs – no frying but the slots don’t hold normal sized hot dogs so there is some trimming involved. We also don’t use sticks. I have also used the corn dog maker to make chocolate cakes with frosting – similar to twinkies.

    Fab. U. Lous!

    Just made corn-dogs using your recipe, and they were wonderful!

    Leftover batter + some cooked corn kernels = awesome corn fritters!


  4. Lindy says

    Oh wow I have looking for a recipe like this forever my son is addicted to corn dogs but I couldn’t find a Gluten Free recipe. I am going to try this thank, thank you so much.

  5. says

    I just wanted to say that the hardest part of being a pregnant celiac is the cravings! My husband just made these corn dogs and they hit the spot! Some will be going in the freezer to be reheated when the next craving hits! Thank you so much!

  6. aislynn says

    Hi, were do you find gf bisquick? I live in canada, edmonton. If i cabt find it what can i use to replace it?

  7. rahel says

    Thank you very much for this recipe. Just finished making a batch – turned out excellent! I substituted ener-G egg replacer for the two eggs since my son is allergic to eggs as well as gluten. The school cafeteria was having corn dogs today (summer school). I always try to make a GF version of what everyone else is having for my 5yr old son… so after an early morning google, I selected your recipe as the best (not just easiest!) and it turned out awesome. Thanks again for posting/sharing it…

    I saw your recipe a few days ago and made a mental note to try it out. I’ve tried to make corndogs before and never had much success. This recipe totally ROCKS! I made an entire package of hot dogs. It’s just my husband and I and he is at work tonight. So, the remaining corndogs will go in the freezer for later. Thanks so much for posting this!

  9. Matthew says

    Well, over a year on, these are still a hit. I made them tonight for my family and they were scarfed up super-quick!!! I went ahead and used the leftover batter for pancakes/Johnnycakes, and put them in the freezer. Many thanks and keep ’em coming.

  10. Christy says

    I tried this recipe last week. It was super easy and tasted Oh So Good! I haven’t had a corndog in several years, nor has my daughter. We both have celiac and enjoyed making and eating this treat. My husband who is not on Gluten Free diet, enjoyed as well! Thanks for sharing with the rest of us GF folks!

  11. Sara R says

    For some reason I needed to use and additional 1/2 c of milk in order for this recipe to work. Other than that it was great; my daughter and I loved it.

  12. Melissa Belle says

    My doctor is testing me for Celiac’s next week! It’s nice to see I’d still be able to have my favorites, if I do need to go Gluten free!

  13. kasey says

    Awesome recipe! I altered it a little with what I had on hand (brown sugar instead of white, brown rice flour instead of bisquick and vanilla coconut milk rather than regular milk) The batter was a bit dry so I added creamed style corn until it was right. I’m wondering if there is a trick to making the batter stick to the dog easily without getting myself all messy?

    • Amber says

      I doubt OP will be back but for anyone reading this whose trying to keep as mess-free as possible I have a solution. Put the batter in a tall and not too wide drinking glass. Then just dip the hot dog in using the stick as a handle and pull it out! Should be a great solution for ya.

  14. Becky says

    Hi! I just wanted to tell you… I saw this recipe on Pinterest and I can’t thank you enough. My son has bunches of food allergies, including gluten. This has become my new fave recipe-thing to do!

  15. amanda says

    Thank you so much! I became gluten free almost 6 years ago. And tonight I tried your gluten free corn dogs and suddenly my 30 year old self was transported back in time to being a kid at the fair again. They tasted just like I remembered them from long, long ago. Great recipe and great dining experience! Thank you!

  16. Laurie says

    I am planning on trying these for my grandson. I understand they can be frozen after cooking but what is the best way to reheat after freezing?

  17. Karaleen says

    I just tried these over 4th of July for my 4 year old son who has Celiac Disease. I did find the batter to be a bit too thick so I added an additional egg and a bit more milk. They were AWESOME!!!!! Everyone at camp was eating them and my boy only got one!!! Luckily I have everything I need to make them in the future. Super easy and totally yummy. And…FYI…ball park franks are gluten free….so no need to try and find a fancy, expensive hot dog.

  18. Gimme5 says

    Oh my goodness!! I have to tell you we love these corn dogs! AND we thinned out the remaining batter with additional milk, drizzled it into the deep fryer, lifted it out, coated it with powdered sugar, and Voila FUNNEL CAKE! I kid you not it tastes exactly like traditional fair funnel cake :o) Be careful to not put too much in the fryer at once cause it’ll bubble over (not cool).

    Thanks for this recipe! God bless you!

  19. Gimme5 says

    Oh my goodness! I forgot to mention a very important modification I had to make! I only had gluten free corn FLOUR on hand. This is what helped make beautifully yummilicious funnel cake! My bad yo, as my eloquent teens would say!

    • Gimme5 says

      I didn’t se my original comment go through. Soooo, to clarify I used corn flour in ace of corn meal. AND then we thinned the batter with additional milk, drizzled it into the fryer a limitless at a time, dusted the crusty delight with powdered sugar, and Voila funnel cake baby! Go try it you know you wanna! ;o)

      Thanks again for a wonderfully delish and easy recipe! Blessings!

  20. Elaine says

    Going to have tried your version but it got better than Bon red mill. I tried the corn bread mix but to gritty.

  21. Kelly says

    Made these tonight with Pamela’s baking mix instead of bisquik. My husband, who was diagnosed as celiac 8 years ago, was in heaven. He was so excited to have corn dogs he could eat. Thank you so much for the recipe.

  22. says

    I am always looking for gluten free recipes for my little guys school lunches. What a great idea can’t wait to try this and it’s much cheaper than the gluten free corn dogs in the store.
