Homemade Corndogs

These are fun for kids to help make! Way more healthy than store-bought fried.(from Food Network)

1 cup milk
1 pkt active dry yeast
2 T oil
2 T brown sugar
1 cup fine cornmeal
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp paprika
10 hot dogs (I used the bun-length)(can use reduced fat also)
1 egg beaten
1 T sesame seed- optional
Dipping sauce of choice
Warm milk in pan. Add yeast, pour into bowl and let sit 2 mins. Stir in oil, sugar and cornmeal. Add flour, salt, baking soda and paprika. Dough will be sticky. Turn out on floured surface and knead for 5 minutes using as much additional flour as needed. Place in greased bowl and cover with plastic. Let rise to double 1 hour. Cut each hot dog in half to create a mini dog.(optional: poke a skewar in each end of hotdog for a stick- i didnt do this, they are easy to pick up with hands.) Divide dough into 20 pieces and make a "worm" by rolling dough between your hands. Wrap around each dog. Place on greased cookie sheet and brush with egg, then sprinkle with seeds if desired. Bake at 350 for 15 mins.
