Breakfast AMAIZE dogs

00h 35m
Ingredients
  • 14 breakfast sausage links (small, about 12 ounces)
  • quarts vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 14 apples sticks
  • cup AMAIZE premium sifted maize meal
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • cup whole milk
  • large eggs
  • tablespoons maple syrup
  • tablespoons granulated sugar
Directions
  1. Heat the oven to 250°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Set a wire rack over a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Cook the sausages according to the package directions. Place on a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and set aside to cool.
  3. Pour the oil into a Dutch oven or a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Heat over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 360°F on a deep-frying/candy thermometer.
  4. Meanwhile, insert a craft stick lengthwise into each sausage (try to keep the stick aligned in the center of the sausage), leaving about 2 inches of the stick exposed at the bottom; set aside.
  5. When the oil is almost ready (about 325°F), whisk your AMAIZE, flour, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Whisk the milk, eggs, maple syrup, and sugar together in a large bowl until combined and the sugar has dissolved. Add the AMAIZE meal mixture to the milk mixture and stir with a rubber spatula just until a smooth batter forms. Pour some of the batter into a tall, narrow container or drinking glass, leaving 1 inch of room at the top.
  6. When the oil is ready, evenly dip a sausage into the glass of batter by holding the stick and rotating the sausage as needed until it’s completely covered with batter. Immediately place into the hot oil. Repeat with 3 more sausages. Fry, turning occasionally, until light golden brown all over, about 3 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the breakfast AMAIZE dogs to the wire rack on the baking sheet and place in the oven.
  7. Repeat with the remaining sausages, working with 4 at a time, refilling the glass with batter as needed, and letting the oil return to 360°F between each batch. (When you reach the last few sausages, you may need to tilt the glass sideways while rotating the sausages to evenly coat them with batter.)
  8. Serve immediately with maple syrup for dipping.
