Gluten and Milk Free Corn Dogs (and Homemade Baked Beans)

So, I saw this post on Gluten Free Girl and decided to try it.  They turned out great.  For the flours, I used a mix of Amaranth, Teff, Quinoa, Millet and Corn Starch.  I used 1 part of this mixture to 1 part of Corn Meal.  I used Goat's milk instead of Cow's.  I also added a bit of Xanthum Gum - just to ensure the mixture held together and to the hot dogs (or in this case Austrian style wieners -  used ones from Rewe that were gluten and lactose free).  I also bought 2 sizes, the longer ones (more like a US hot dog) and the shorter ones.

When I told Guy I was going to make these - his response was "I have never had corn dogs!"  I could not believe it!!!!  So, made making them that much more special :)

For the Baked Beans, I used my friend Chungchi's wonderful recipe that I have made for over 10 years! here is that recipe,

Homemade Baked Beans
Ground in a skillet...
200 grams ground beef
200 grams bacon
large onion

Then mix in a large bowl with the following
1 can of kidney beans, drained
1 can of pinto beans, drained
1 can of butter beans, drained
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon mustard
2 teaspoons vinegar

Then put it into a baking dish and bake at 180C for an hour.

Was a great meal and my Guy enjoyed the corn dogs :)

There was plenty of left over batter, so I made hush puppies with what was left :)
