  • 4 Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Sausages
  • 2 Large hot dog buns

Corn Flour Batter

  • 75 g Plain Flour
  • 45 g Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tbsp Vegan Egg Replacer
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 125 ml Oat Milk
  • Sunflower oil
  • Seasoned Flour
  • 50 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Paprika Seasoning
  • Pinch of salt & Pepper
  • Tobacco Onions
  • 1 Sliced White Onion
  • 2 tbsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 100 g Plain Flour

Garnishes

  • 1 tbsp fresh coriander (finely chopped)
  • Chilli Jam
  • Vegan Barbeque sauce
  1. Firstly, make the Corn Dog batter by combining the plain flour, yellow cornmeal, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Then add in the egg replacer with the water and gradually mix in the oat milk until you get a smooth batter.
  2. Next, make your seasoned flour by mixing together the plain flour, cayenne, paprika, salt & pepper in a bowl. Roll the Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Sausages in the seasoned plain flour to cover the full sausages. Set aside to cook later.
  3. Next make your tobacco onions, by thinly slicing an onion into half-moon shapes and tossing them well in plain flour and Old Bay seasoning.
  4. In a large pot over medium heat, add enough sunflower oil to come halfway up the sides and heat to 170c. Dip the Linda McCartney’s Vegetarian Sausages into the corn batter mix and then fry in the oil until golden brown – around 5 minutes. Ensure you turn the sausages throughout cooking to ensure an even cook and golden colour. Once cooked, remove the sausage from the oil and place on kitchen towel to absorb excess oil.
  5. While the corn dogs are resting, cook your tobacco onions. Use the same pan of oil as you did for the sausages and add the onion mixture to the oil and deep fry until golden brown – around 4 minutes. Remove from the oil and drain.
  6. Serve two Linda McCartney’s Corn Not Dogs in each of your hot dog buns, topped with crispy Tobacco onions, Chilli Jam and Barbeque sauce, Garnish with fresh coriander. Enjoy!
