Maintenance – Vegan Corndogs -waffle style!

One of the things that my older kids remember from before my “transition” into a healthier way of life was corndogs.  There is only one food that I ask my kids to please not eat and that is hotdogs.  I guess I was feeling a little nostalgic this week and decided to come up with a vegan version of the good ol’ corndog.  I had seen a segment on Rachel Ray using the waffle iron for something like this and thought I would give it a shot.  I was shocked at how easy these were and my kids loved them.  Now I must say that even the vegan hot dogs are HIGHLY processed and are NOT a nutrient-dense food.  These are not something that should be part of the everyday.  However, every once in a while they are certainly welcome!

I opted to make the batter Gluten-Free although the brand of hotdog I purchased (from Wal-Mart) were not gluten-free.

3/4 cup pancake/waffle mix

1/4 cup cornmeal

3/4 cup Vanilla Almond milk

1 TBS oil

1 packet of stevia, optional

4 vegetarian hotdogs

Heat the waffle iron.  Using wooden skewers, gently slide the hotdogs onto a stick. Spray the pan with non-stick spray.

Spread half of the batter onto 2 “squares” of the waffle iron.  Line up 2 hotdogs per square and then pour the rest off the batter on top.  They will take about 4 minutes to cook.  Cut each waffle in half to serve.
