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

    I love the idea with the sausage, can't wait to see more of what you come up with. Another item I would love for you to try is the Dash Bowl. So if you run out of ideas please think of trying it. Thanks./Kathy

  2. Marcella Diaz Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:35 pm

    I use this mix all the time and love making corn dogs in the oven in pans made for hot dog buns. My favorite new chaffle recipe that I really think you would like…1 Tablespoon of the corn free mix, 1 Tablespoon panko style pork rinds, 1 Tablespoon egg whites, 1 teaspoons either protein isolate or collagen, and finely shredded mozzarella added only to waffle maker, top and bottom. Reminds me of cracklin cornbread but is working for all savory sandwiches.

  3. Rosemary Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:37 pm

    I just bought this and it's 🐝 in the box for a week. Now I know what to do with it! Thank you

  4. Scott O'Connor Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Good morning Steve. I love me some corn dogs. A variation of you corn tortilla recipe might kill it!!!

  5. StepSo Steady Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    Hmm I'm thinking Jalapeno Popper made in corndog maker. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Darla S Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:45 pm

    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!

  7. Carrie Abbott Posted on October 7, 2019 at 2:54 pm

    Chaffle dogs!

  8. Melissa Renae Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    I love your shirt! 😁

  9. aVTprepper Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:02 pm

    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.

  10. Britt H Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:10 pm

    Oh how fun and thank you… Can't wait for more keto foods on this. 😊

  11. Lori Dupuy Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:11 pm

    some eclairs…..lol

  12. Lori Dupuy Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:16 pm

    … as it does in my brain….lol

  13. spicy beans Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:19 pm

    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!!!

  14. T B Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:25 pm

    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 💖

  15. Dana Karloz Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:39 pm

    My first memory of a corn dog is at the state fair! I was probably 17 years old 😂

  16. Dana Karloz Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:41 pm

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

  17. Rhonda Baldwin Posted on October 7, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    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

  18. HORTONDLFN Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:04 pm

    Why do so many keto recipes rely on flavorings and "substitutes"?

  19. Kristin J Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    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!

  20. Katie Irish Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    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!

  21. Debra Lunnen Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    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

  22. camp nut Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    I was thinking possibly the sausage with chaffle mix instead of batter, but top may not stay covered.

  23. باسل الدوسري Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:40 pm

    Go go better batter 😋

  24. Dianne S Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:42 pm

    Put the batter in a mason jar and dip each corn dog in. Do not spray before use, it will avoid the dark outside

  25. Dave Watson Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    Sweet t-shirt.

  26. Keto Lisa Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    Why not just use the chaffle recipe with cornbread flavor drops!

  27. Dianne_M_ Kartes Posted on October 7, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    How do you like your Air Fryer and what size and brand is it? Love your Keto info!!!

  28. Debra Lunnen Posted on October 7, 2019 at 5:02 pm

    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 !

  29. PhilGeissler Posted on October 7, 2019 at 5:41 pm

    Now you're just teasing me! 😀

  30. Zephirine Drouhin Posted on October 7, 2019 at 5:56 pm

    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!

  31. Rhonda Baldwin Posted on October 7, 2019 at 6:10 pm

    I trust your opinion!

  32. Slack Packhiker Posted on October 7, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    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!

  33. debrabo100 Posted on October 7, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    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?

  34. Cyndy Fisher Posted on October 7, 2019 at 6:44 pm

    Looks soooo good!! Love your ideas!!

  35. Marianna Solis Posted on October 7, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    Oh yes, you got my attention at “chile rellenos’! Looking forward to that!

  36. Cross777 Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:03 pm

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

  37. coryreview Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:06 pm

    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.)

  38. Dejected J Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:14 pm

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

  39. Michelle McLaughlin Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:28 pm

    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!

  40. Mechelle Crosby Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:32 pm

    I miss corndogs!

  41. Lighthouse Fan Posted on October 7, 2019 at 7:44 pm

    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.

  42. William Tate Posted on October 7, 2019 at 8:58 pm

    Very nice. I can only imagine all the options you cold do with this. A keto corndog would be pretty nice

  43. Linda Wilson Fisher Posted on October 7, 2019 at 9:02 pm

    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

  44. 💕Presouz💕 Posted on October 7, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    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? 🥰

  45. sabrina chalupiak Posted on October 7, 2019 at 9:19 pm

    mozza sticks?

  46. Cj Lively Posted on October 7, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    I can see many appliances coming into my future lol! Love corn dogs and haven’t had one in quite some time!

  47. Echo Delta Posted on October 7, 2019 at 10:52 pm

    Another serious review. Most excellent. Anxiously waiting for the tweaked recipes.

  48. John Hogue Posted on October 7, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    Mozzarella sticks

  49. Lorraine Foster Posted on October 7, 2019 at 11:51 pm

    Did anyone else think Twinkie maker instead of corn dog maker or is it just me?

  50. beverly fuller Posted on October 7, 2019 at 11:52 pm

    You are amazingly creative, patient and so easy on the eyes and ears! Thank you for nailing another great idea!

  51. Sherita Powers Posted on October 7, 2019 at 11:59 pm

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

  52. reinangel Posted on October 8, 2019 at 12:23 am

    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.

  53. blonde moment Posted on October 8, 2019 at 12:43 am

    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.

  54. Kristi Neuenfeldt Posted on October 8, 2019 at 1:30 am

    Thanks for testing out this gadget! I wonder if chaffle dogs would work…

  55. Didi1770 Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:27 am

    Wow steve. I love corn dogs. You have made me a happy camper.

  56. Tina A Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:51 am

    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.

  57. RL Gildea Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:55 am

    How bout trying pizza rolls in this?

  58. Sherri Lynn Posted on October 8, 2019 at 3:02 am

    Fun video! I am looking forward to getting one of these. Great ideas!

  59. MisskittyAGcrafter Posted on October 8, 2019 at 3:04 am

    Did you ever work in radio?

  60. MisskittyAGcrafter Posted on October 8, 2019 at 3:09 am

    I don’t think that I would invest in one of these. I have so many gadgets already as it is.

  61. Kelly Fazekas Posted on October 8, 2019 at 4:19 am

    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!

  62. Dan Rowden Posted on October 8, 2019 at 7:46 am

    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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXyajjHUrhw

  63. Dianne Hillman Posted on October 8, 2019 at 10:30 am

    What about Chaffle corn dog

  64. Gayla Catrett Posted on October 8, 2019 at 12:52 pm

    Chaffle dog…with the corn extract. (Guess I should have watched the video before making a comment.)

  65. Richard Bucker Posted on October 8, 2019 at 1:23 pm

    are hotdogs keto?

  66. Anne Dalin Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:46 pm

    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. https://fluffychixcook.com/low-carb-keto-induction-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!

  67. sandys7118 Posted on October 8, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    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.

  68. Cyndi Manka Posted on October 8, 2019 at 4:54 pm

    I love your videos. Ty!!!

  69. Jason Duncan Posted on October 8, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Great video! Where do you get the corn flavoring? What is the brand?

  70. belizeguy Posted on October 8, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Experimentation at it's best!! Thanks!

  71. James Mostowski Posted on October 8, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    I gave up 'processed food' 16 months ago and won't eat sausages again.

  72. Keto Chaffle House Posted on October 9, 2019 at 3:24 pm

    omg, I want it.

  73. Keto Chaffle House Posted on October 9, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    Use chaffle wonder bread recipe :3

  74. Darlene Kassner Posted on October 9, 2019 at 3:51 pm

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

  75. Teresa Tally Posted on October 9, 2019 at 8:33 pm

    Awwww😏I was expecting a big CRUNCH!

  76. gayle crisp Posted on October 10, 2019 at 1:21 am

    Sounds like you are on to something, can't wait to see what else is in that head of yours 🙂

  77. Eve FairyAngel Posted on October 10, 2019 at 2:16 am

    Recipe soon please, I fell off the wagon with the real corndog a week ago, this gives me hope

  78. Rhonda Garrett Posted on October 10, 2019 at 5:50 am

    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. 🙂

  79. Sharon Young Posted on October 10, 2019 at 10:33 pm

    I’ve heard someway they lose up and cook for a couple minutes and then add topping.

  80. Barbara Ellis Posted on October 11, 2019 at 2:57 am

    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?!

  81. Killing Fat Aimee Posted on October 11, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    I think there could be several possibilities with this machine. Thanks for sharing!

  82. B. Glam Posted on October 12, 2019 at 2:33 pm

    I have an idea try mozzarella eggs and pork rinds with the corn flavoring.

  83. Celeste Griffith Posted on October 12, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Love the T-shirt Dude

  84. sarasayshi Posted on October 12, 2019 at 8:48 pm

    That does look like a pretty cool appliance for Keto dogs.

  85. Monica umbach Posted on October 13, 2019 at 12:26 am

    I want one of those pump blender wands 🙂

  86. 1KayBilly Posted on October 13, 2019 at 5:17 am

    I wonder how the mix would work if you used a deep fryer like a traditional corn dog.

  87. Kellie Minkler Posted on October 13, 2019 at 2:41 pm

    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.

  88. Aaron L Posted on October 15, 2019 at 12:36 am

    Great content! I look forward to more with this corn dog machine.

  89. Aaron L Posted on October 15, 2019 at 12:48 am

    Maybe some mozzarella sticks with string cheese and pork rind breading?

  90. M She Posted on October 15, 2019 at 2:39 pm

    Thia was going to be my next project. Thank you!
