OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since I made the lemon glazed fritters the other day, I thought that using a batter to fry things would be pretty awesome. I haven’t had a corn dog in a while and it just popped into my head. But, I didn’t want to just use hotdogs – so I decided on using 2 varieties of sausage to see which one came out better.

To me, the chicken sausage was really on point – but not in the chicken department. When I used to live in the Bahamas, we used to get conch fritters all the time with a mayo/ketchup sauce to go with it. For some reason, these truly brought me back to my childhood, instantly thinking of conch fritters. The taste isn’t exactly the same, obviously, but the batter and the spices inside the sausage really blended to give me that flashback of island life.

You will have batter left over at the end, so I just use the leftover batter to make a fritter that can accompany the corndogs. They’re really tasty with all the spices that is initially put in the batter.

I know that the batter looks burnt, and it is slightly overcooked, but it doesn’t taste that way. The dark color of the almond meal adds an even darker color on the finished product. Delicious, nonetheless.

This is one of the few times I suggest using Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal over my favorite, Honeyville Almond Flour. It’s because the batter isn’t as fragile (we are frying it, rather than baking), so I don’t mind the darkened colors that run throughout it.

I suggest you use lard, peanut oil, or ghee to fry these in – lard being choice number 1. It’s the cheapest for the price, and it is relatively easy to find.
