Keto Corn Dogs! Restaurant Classics Corn Dog Maker Review

Keto Corn Dogs! Restaurant Classics Corn Dog Maker Review

hey there it’s Steve from Serious Keto
and in this video we are going to do an unboxing and review of the restaurant
classics corndog maker but before we do that if you enjoy low-carb cooking
videos product and ingredient reviews as well as lessons learned from my
experiences with the ketogenic lifestyle and intermittent fasting click that
subscribe button down there and while you’re at it click the bell next to it
so you’re notified whenever I release a new video I can actually recall my first
corndog I was probably about 5 years old and it was at the A&W restaurant in
Sioux Falls South Dakota and I have loved corndogs
ever since being on keto it’s one of those things I kind of miss so today not
only are we gonna try out the corndog maker
we’re also gonna see if we can make ourselves a keto corndog let’s see what
we got in the box we have some skewers we have the instruction manual and the
corndog maker which will give a quick clean before we try out one of the first
things that was apparent to me as I was cleaning this is there’s sort of this
wofully Dimond texture in each one of the receptacles here I don’t know if
that’s gonna present a challenge later when I’m actually cleaning this to other
things that also kind of stick out to me is these are a lot smaller than a
regular hotdog and the grooves for the skewers are fairly small as well so
we’ll see if that’s problematic when we’re making our corndogs
in addition to reviewing the corndog maker
we’re also going to try out this good Dee’s corn free bread cornbread mix and
see if that’s worth the price for the cornbread batter we’ll use 3 eggs beaten one tablespoon of apple cider
vinegar the entire packet of mix and a quarter cup of butter as you can see your standard hot dog is
about twice as long as one of these receptacles can accommodate so we’re
gonna have to slice some hotdogs in half then we’ll run them through with some
skewers and preheat our corndog maker the light is green so we’ll give this a
little spritz with some coconut oil add our batter at our hotdogs top with batter and
clothes all right it’s been about four minutes I’m gonna get these guys out of
here all right I don’t like that this tour like that I just need to pull them
all at once yeah that worked better so I did overfill a little bit and probably
went 30 seconds to a minute too long on the cooking at least from the appearance
here now let’s see how it tastes with a little bit of yellow mustard and no
sugar added ketchup that’s not bad so it seemed like the outside of the corndog
got more done than the inside of the batter the hotdog itself was plenty hot
but the batter didn’t cook all that well and it could be that this corn free
bread mixture just isn’t designed especially for this I may have to play
around with the batter but I think I think that this corndog maker is a solid
unit I think there’s gonna be some fun things we can do with it in fact I think
I’m gonna do those fun things in this video so for starters we’ll try corn
dogs again this time I’m gonna see if I can’t make my own batter that’s better
for better we use 1 large egg 1/4 cup of mozzarella 1 tablespoon of birch benders
kedo and about 20 drops of one-on-one flavors cornbread extract well we using
a food processor because we really want to get a batter like texture you could also use a blender or a
nutribullet little spritz of coconut oil pour in our batter add the hotdogs top with batter and cook
it’s been about four minutes it’s no longer steaming let’s see how they look let’s look pretty good now let’s see how
they taste that’s some good stuff right there I
think I could even go up to 30 drops on the cornbread flavoring if you look at
the corn dog here you can see that the batter is a lot better cooked than it
was with that corn free bread I like this and I think with a little tweaking
I can probably get this to a really legit corn dog but I got another idea
I’ve spritz the griddle with a little bit more coconut oil then what we have
here is my McGriddle dough which I will link to in the description below but
with an additional 1/4 cup of water to make it a little bit more pliable and
then we have a pork sausage let’s see if this works out is good in reality as it
does in my brain it’s been about four minutes whoo all right it looks like I
got a little bit overzealous with the mix also probably if I were to do this
again I would dial back on the baking powder from the original recipe from one
teaspoon probably down to a half teaspoon but we’ll tidy this up and give
them a taste that’s solid I’ll need to tweak the
McGriddle recipe a little bit for this but it’s it’s pretty darn close and it
makes me really optimistic about some of the other things I might be able to do
with this corndog maker so I am really kind of pleased with the Smart Planet
corndog maker at first I just thought it was going to be sort of a gimmicky
little thing and make some corn dogs but there are a lot of ideas I have already
with this I think you could make all kinds of little mini handheld sort of
food items whether it’s you know Pizza flavored something Mexican sort of like
making a you know chili relleno sort of like longer empanadas I think this is
gonna be a lot of fun to play with and I would be expecting to see some more
videos with me using this so stay tuned for those and thanks for watching

  1. I bought the corn flavorings called for in your corn tortilla recipe. I wanted to make the corn tortillas AND I would also like to make corn bread. Do you have a corn bread recipe I could use? The corn dogs look yummy!

  2. Love your videos! Maybe down the road you could experiment and make (Dash) mini pie maker recipes. I bought one and will be experimenting myself.

  3. Thank you! I bought one of these this summer and have never used it. Just yesterday I was wondering if I should take it to storage. I was thinking of using fathead dough after seeing a pigs in a blanket recipe. I guess it's staying! Great channel!!!

  4. Hey! These are fantastic ideas! Way more creative than I was when I poked you about making these. Thank you for taking the chance and trying it out. The options you have come up with are pretty cool and sound delicious. So, Thank you! Great video and look forward to others and your recipes for it. Totally going to do the McGriddle batter and sausage one. Yummy 💖

  5. My sister cannot stand me anymore…I have a ton of kitchen gadgets and watching your videos I got even more 😂🙈

  6. Hey Steve!
    My "science project" is in the freezer. I plan to dust off my corndog maker and try some of your experiments.
    Also, how about mixing Birch Benders and Good Dees for the batter. YOU, try it. NO you try…lol

  7. Perfect for portion control!

    And just plain ol F U N!

    And with the right type of keto dough… Berries pie, pumpkin cream cheese, desserts, stuffed taco, onion ring, cauliflower or broccoli bites, hot pockets, mozz sticks, chix pot pie, stuffed pizza, stuffed chaffles, maybe even a creative popover or beef Wellington too!

    So many fun ideas!

    LOVE kitchen gadgets and your channel!

    Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  8. Okay, this is looking good so far; I see a lot of potential there. I'm sure that your are going to come up with some awesome recipes!

  9. You are so FUN !!! Thanks ! ILove this !!! I LOVE CORNDOGS !! I have to walk real fast by the Corn Dog Place in the mall !!
    How about a dessert one ? Like with cream cheese or a cream cheese frosting like a pop over thing ewww, CHEAM CHEESE DANISH OR CHEESE CAKE LIKE ! 🌻Deb in California ! Have a GREAT WEEK

  10. Churro ! Filled and dipped into ! Egg Rolls ! Cream Cheese Egg Roll oh Endless ! Soft Pretzels 🥨 ! Little Cheese Cakes ! Your on to something Fun and Good !

  11. Oooh, this is awesome! Can you try “fried” pickles? How about “Fried” mozzarella sticks? How about ladyfingers doughnuts with sweetened cream cheese filling? All Keto, of course!

  12. I just ordered this corn dog maker and am glad I did, after reading so many wonderful comment ideas. The whole thing is just so festive!

  13. Wow. Never would I expect the corn dog maker to be Keto friendly. You are genius! Have you tried it with Fathead dough-Pigs in the blanket?

  14. Serious Keto love 💕 all those experiments 🧪 🧫, keep them coming. Darn I miss that chaffle crunch coming from the corn dogs 🤷🏻‍♀️….

  15. that is pretty neat. I use fathead dough with some added stevia drops(haven't gotten my corn flavoring yet) rolled out thin and fried in olive oil or avocado oil. It is easy and one of the best recipes I have…may buy that maker thing though to not have to fry the dogs! (avocado oil is expensive.)

  16. I was thinking of maybe trying to make a hotpocket with the chaffle mix in my quesadilla cooker. Have you tried anything like that?

  17. Steve I just had an idea for you to figure out! One of the things I miss soooooo much since starting keto is French fries. Please and thank you!

  18. I've been eyeing this corn dog maker. Wondering if with this a sweet batter could be used to make a keto style twinkle or zinger.

  19. I love your videos. you provide a lot of info but get to the facts. Love your style. …. and can't wait to see the final product!! thank you

  20. I noticed a baby bottle warmer and some baby bottles with one missing baby bottle halfway through the video so who’s got the infant? 🥰

  21. Ur a freakin GENIUS 😄 I love watching all your videos too. Maybe you can make some Keto Twinkies💁🏽‍♀️ Thanks for another entertaining video.

  22. The best hot dogs I have found for this is the Nathan's bun length thin hot dogs cut in half. Perfect length for this machine.

  23. Steve, Do you have any interest in creating a homemade keto protein bar? I'd like to know if making it would be cheaper than buying it.

  24. I could never eat corndogs….uggg. So, definitely wouldn't want to eat them Keto style. It's pretty wild seeing all the variations of the original recipes though.

  25. You're such a food guru! You really need to (a) write a cookbook and (b) become either my personal chef or send me care packages weekly!

  26. I'd be really curious as to how this method/recipe would turn out in your machine, with some of your fancy corn flavour magic stuff.

  27. I've been making corn dogs in my vintage cast iron cornbread pan. The BEST cornbread recipe I've found is by Fluffy Chix. Everyone thinks it's real cornbread.
    One other thing I did was dice up the hot dogs and add them to the batter. It was a fun experiment…that worked!

  28. Excited to see your creations using the corn dog maker! I have had this in my Amazon cart and was on the fence on buying it. Thank you, because I am going to go ahead and buy it now that I can justify that I can use it for more than just corn dogs.

  29. I apologize beforehand if it's been mentioned, but why not try using your corn tortilla recipe for the corn dogs….

  30. Hi Steve. If anyone can pull this off it's you. You're brilliant & very creative in the Keto-ized kitchen. Plus you're a perfectionist. So many great ideas in these comments. Can't wait to see what all you come up with. 🙂

  31. Thanks! Love your videos. I'm going to try the recipe anyway, yours with the keto pancake mix. My granddaughter, 2/12, loves corn dogs. I used my silicone mini corn dog mold and used a chaffle recipe; 1 egg 1/2 cup shredded mozz. Didn't really like it as a corn dog. I think the mix will make it more cornbready. Is that a word? LOL Also what about jalapeno poppers?!

  32. Dude, it ain’t a corn dog unless it’s fried. I’d like to see these fried up in a little coconut or olive oil after they come out of that fancy gizmo.

  33. Here is his problem: the batter was waaaaaay too thick , he should have been able to dip the hot dogs in batter let it run off some then stuck them in, all you have to do is add some coconut milk to the batter to thin it out.

  34. I watched this video and before it was over I went to Amazon and bought one! Impulse buyer FTW!! I can't wait to get this thing rolling!! I'm thinking all things pizza pockets with this! (o;

  35. Having mad thoughts of chicken cordon bleu made with deli sliced chicken and ham and a mozzarella stick with some sort of crispy crust made in this. If it can be done – you would be the one to do it!

  36. Hi Steve, have you tried fathead dough for the corn dogs or maybe your corn tortilla recipe. Not a big fan big fan of fathead dough, but I find the keto mixes are just too thick and sweet. Anxiously waiting for your recipe. Thanks for all you do.

  37. I just got my corn dog maker (this exact one but I didn't receive skewers) in yesterday and am VERY excited to try out some recipes! Keto corn dogs, breakfast dogs, jalepeno/cheddar poppers, mozzarella sticks. So excited!
