Belongs to cokerlj Original Chex Mix 

I like more seasonings than called for so I kind of pile up the seasoned salt, garlic powder and onion powder. I add an extra tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce too.
Recipe also calls for a cup of garlic flavor bagel chips, I don’t care for these and compensate with more cereals. Some people will add Gold Fish snacks.

You might need to buy:
  • Corn Chex
  • Rice Chex
  • Wheat Chex
  • mixed nuts
  • bite size pretzels
  • garlic flavor bite-size bagel chips
  • butter or margarine
  • Worcestershire sauce

  • garlic powder
  • onion powder

Makes 8 corn dogs (I think you could make more with the amount of better this makes.)

I took the original recipe and combined it with another I had. It turned out amazing!

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS:
To re-create this state fair favorite at home, we made a light batter with flour, cornmeal, buttermilk, and eggs. Coating the skewered hot dogs in flour before batter-dipping ensures the batter adheres to the hot dogs. To make coating the hot dogs easy, we transfer the batter to a tall drinking glass for even, hassle free dunking.

You might need to buy:
  • hot dogs
  • cayenne pepper
  • buttermilk
  • salt
  • honey
  • vegetable oil
  • baking soda
  • sugar ...more if you like sweeter batter
  • baking powder
  • all-purpose flour
  • additional flour
  • yellow cornmeal
  • inches vegetable oil in bottom of a heavy dutch oven

I haven’t made this but I’ve eaten this and I love it!

This is another version of this recipe…I haven’t actually tasted this one but I love the other.
You need farm fresh milk to make the clabbered milk…can’t use grocery store milk. Naomi says that she buys the “cottage cheese” already made from a lady in Bartlett, TX. Naomi says that you can also make this without letting it age. So, you would season, and cook the cottage cheese as soon as it has completed the drying process, or purchase from the lady in Bartlett already dried for you. This cheese recipe is the recipe that Naomi’s mom and grandmother always made. She makes it all the time and her family loves it. Doesn’t know Totsy’s recipe, but is sure it is almost like hers. She said that Totsy sometimes also added cream cheese to her cottage cheese. I recall reading Totsy’s recipe once and I don’t recall the “aging” process, however I’m not sure.

These sound like they would be really hot…but I don’t like hot stuff and I loved these! I think the trick is cleaning out all those ribs and seeds. (You might want to use plastic gloves to protect your fingers.)

Amazing!
I usually double the recipe to make plenty to take somewhere.
You can either make in the small bite-size appetizer size for a party OR use the whole crescent for a breakfast serving.
You can also buy an extra tube of crescent rolls as I always have filling left over. You can make these up earlier in the day, cover with saran wrap and place in fridge as they are quite time consuming to make. Take out later, let come to room temp. and then bake.

You might need to buy:
  • Hot Breakfast Sausage
  • cream cheese softened
  • refrigerated crescent rolls
  • Jimmy Dean Maple Pork Breakfast Sausage

These are really good…people always ask “What in the world are these crackers made with?!”
They keep for a really long time, but they won’t last that long.
Sounds like they would be really soggy…but the crackers absorbs it all…also you can adjust the amount of cayenne pepper used to your personal preference.
Serve like you would serve any other snack crackers or chips.

You might need to buy:
  • cayenne pepper
  • dry Ranch dressing mix
  • vegetable oil

These are really good and add a little something different to your appetizer table or Mexican buffet. They can be used as a light dessert if desired, arranging a few chips and a dollop of dip on a small plate.
I have a convection oven so I can do several cookie sheets at a time. Allow the chips to cool on the cookie sheet and when cool place in zip lock bags.
These can be made a day or two ahead.
