Canadian Beer-Battered Corn Dog Bites

Canadian Beer-Battered Corn Dog Bites

We took inspiration from a classic carnival recipe, starting with our famous Juicy Jumbos and a dose of our favourite local lager. These irresistible bites are ready to add flavour to your most exciting celebrations, from party snacks to gameday platters, to celebrating the great outdoors with a savoury grilling spread.

Cook Time

10 Mins



1 ½ cups cornmeal

1 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting sausages

½ teaspoon kosher salt


4 Tablespoons sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 cup beer, preferably lager, plus more to adjust consistency of batter if too thick

1 Pkg Schneiders Original Juicy Jumbos, cut each hot dog into 5 pieces

8 cups of canola oil for frying


Heat oil to 325 F in a deep-fryer or high-sided pot.

Combine all ingredients except wieners and whisk batter until smooth. If batter is too thick, add a small amount of beer to achieve desired consistency.

Lightly dust wieners with flour to help batter stick before frying.

In small batches, dip hot dogs into the batter, making sure each piece is completely coated.

Using a fork, lift out wieners and gently drop into the oil.

Fry until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

Place on paper towel to drain.

Repeat with remaining hot dogs.

Serve with ketchup or grainy mustard


You can add flavourings to this batter, such as Old Bay seasoning, dry mustard powder, or fennel pollen for a twist on a conventional corn dog batter.

For a non-alcoholic option, replace beer with ginger ale.
