Okay, so my friend Cassi might get the distinction of "most blogged about three days in a row," but this Cassi-related post is actually an old one that I've been sitting on. Way back in October, Cassi bought me a Handy Gourmet Samba Snack Maker for my birthday.
The Samba Snack Maker can be used for anything from sweet dessert-filled crepes to corn dogs, and Cassi fully intended for me to use this for desserts. But I saw the word "corn dog" on the box, and I knew what would be happening with this machine. I LOVE corn dogs!
Now, I actually made my first batch of corn dogs in the Samba shortly after I got it, but I was thinking about making other stuff and doing a big ole post. So I've been sitting on it. But this has been a busy week, and cooking is mostly out of the question. I've decided to go ahead and show you what I have, and when I use it for dessert, I'll just do another post.
Anyway, here's the Samba in action:
I used the corn dog batter in the included recipe book, but I made it vegan by using Ener-G egg replacer to sub out the eggs called for. The wells are quite small, so I chopped the Lightlife Smart Dogs in half for mini-corn dogs!
Delicious! The thin batter makes these almost like hot dog-filled cornmeal crepes. I dipped these in maple mustard and served with slaw.
