The Pigs are Safe in the Barn

What you need: 

1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 tablespoon corn meal
1 tablespoon oil
1/2-1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 vegan hot dogs, halved (I use Smart Dogs)

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together all ingredients (except vegan hot dogs).
2. Add water little by little until a dough ball is formed. Roll the dough out as thin as you would a tortilla.
3. Wrap the dough around each dog 1/2. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden.
Serve with your favorite condiments. I’m attempting Thai peanut sauce.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Oh yeah, I tried glazing them with soy milk (someone mentioned it in the comments), but they didn't come out very glazed looking.

These are pretty decent. I want to try the different brands of vegan dogs, though. I used Smart Dogs.

I didn't have any corn meal, so I used more flour. I want to use corn meal next time, though, because I  mine taste a little too floury. I think the dough could use some extra flavor. I was going to add parsley flakes and garlic powder but forgot!

I put mustard on mine and drizzled with hot sauce. Yum!

i was under the impression that corn flour was corn meal that is finely ground-- corn meal has a coarser texture. also, polenta, to my knowledge, is a form of cooked corn meal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polenta).

The bag of cornmeal I currently have in my cupboard says CORNMEAL as the main text, then underneath (Polenta). So, I think perhaps the package is just saying you can make polenta with this cornmeal...? ??? It does look a little courser than typical, finely ground cornmeal.

At any rate, I'm sure some sort of ground cornmeal will work for this! It's just to give it that "corn dog" taste. :)

i think you could use corn flour here, or just all regular flour, but i like the texture of corn meal.

Hi, everyone! Just a question...I'm from Mexico and I don't really understand what corn meal
is. I'm guessing is like corn flour but I'm not sure...anyone cna help me?  :-\ Thanks a lot!

I'm actually not sure what corn flour is, but cornmeal is what you use when making corn bread. It is also called polenta sometimes. I hope that helps!

P.S. I just Googled this, and it appears that cornmeal & corn flour are the same thing. :)
