Cheddar Jalapeños Waffle Corndogs


Growing up in Hong Kong, I was never exposed to American "football" and football to me was "soccer". I also only had British schooling up until college, so I played a lot of British sports like squash, cricket, rugby and netball. Netball is this all girls game played in skirts and it's like basketball without dribbling. I'm not even sure why it's a sport! It's more of an excuse to watch girls jump around in skirts... :\ I was also highly uncoordinated in my teens and was never into sports back then. It all changed when I went off to college and decided to lose my freshman 15 (lol, more like 20). Now, I love running, playing tennis, and in fact, I was in my women's college rugby team for 2 years!
I wish I understood American football though. People around me are so pumped about game day, whereas, I'm more pumped about game day eats! This waffle corndog creation is from my love of waffles, mini corn dogs and all food on sticks! They are super easy to make and easy to eat too. Hope you guys enjoy it!
Also...who's playing this weekend?

Cheddar Jalapeños Waffle Corndogs 

makes 8-10 waffle corndogs

1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup sharp cheddar, shredded
2 jalapeños, seeded and coarsely diced
5 hot dog
butter
  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl: from cornmeal to salt. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, veggie oil and egg. Mix dry and wet ingredients together 
  2. Fold in shredded cheese and jalapeños. Cut your hot dogs in half length-wise and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Poke a skewer into the cut dogs. Unless you have a pretty deep set waffle iron (but I couldn't fit mine in)
  3. Heat up your waffle iron and when it's ready, lather butter on the iron surface. Place two dogs in each iron square. My square waffle iron has 4x4 raised parts, so I placed the dogs in the trough between the 1st and 2nd and the 3rd and 4th, with the skewers sticking outside
  4. Scoop the cornbread batter so that it generously covers the dogs. Close iron and cook until lightly brown and crispy outside. It will take longer than your usual waffles
  5. Cut waffle in half and serve with ketchup and dijon mustard!
