The Perfect Bratwurst Corn Dog Recipe by Nolechek's

Just when you thought that bratwursts couldn’t get any better, bratwurst corn dogs came knocking on your door! Corn dogs are a Midwest classic, a staple fair food that brings nostalgia, joy and of course, tons of flavor. 

Our specialty bratwurst is the perfect pairing with the right fried dough. You’ll want the following ingredients for your batter:

  • 1 1/2 cups fine yellow corn meal
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
Here are the steps: 
  1. Pour 2-3” of oil in a large pot or dutch oven and heat to 350˚F over medium heat.
  2. Pat dry with paper towels. Insert sticks into the bratwurst.
  3. Whisk together dry ingredients (corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt). Whisk together wet ingredients (buttermilk, egg, 1 Tbsp oil and honey). Combine wet and dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour batter into a drinking glass almost to the top and dip bratwursts. Put corndog straight down into batter and give it a little twirl to fully coat the hot dogs then swirl as you lift up. Let excess drip off.
  5. Hold corn dog at an angle in the hot oil for 5-7 seconds to let it seal then drop into oil (this keeps them from sticking to the bottom of the pot).
  6. Fry 3 minutes or until golden brown. Fry up to 2-3 at a time (so you don’t drop the temperature), turning them as needed to brown evenly. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

And voila! Bon appetite. 

We hope you enjoyed this post on the perfect bratwurst corn dog recipe! Be sure to order yours today and get grilling.
