Waffle Dogs

Yesterday I stole a like new "Cecilware WD-120 Waffle Dogger/Crepe on a Stick" at a local auction for $30 so next year I'm gonna try selling Waffle Dogs from our burger trailer.  They said it had only been used once and it looks like it.  I don't think anyone else there knew what it was.  I had been wanting to try corndogs for a couple of years but don't have and don't want to have a deep fryer.  I wondered if anyone on here has used the waffle dog machine and if so, how does it work and how do you like it.  They didn't have any paperwork or instruction manual with it but for the price I couldn't complain.
 
It has spaces for 10 dogs at a time with a lid that comes down on it.  This may sound dumb but I've never used one.  Do I dip the dog first, like a deep fried corn dog, then put them in the spaces or do I fill the spaces then put the dog in and close the lid.  Also do I cook the dogs first or do I put them in cold and let them cook as the waffle mix does?  I figure with all the expertise on here someone will be able to keep me from screwing up too bad. 
 
I have never tried fixing Crepe's but I may fix them along with a link sausage coated with waffle mix for a breakfast item.  It would be something we could fix fast and easy while we are setting up for our lunch menu.  Thanks a Lot.

    Go here for the instruction manual.  Looks like you did steal it.

    You misunderstood my post...I was asking if it was Jack that built a crepe cooker and posted pictures here on Roadfood. LOL

    Crepes are to French for me I do BBQ, Chilli, Sausages, Brisket, Pulled Pork, etc. In fact making chilli as I type. And cooking a flat on the smoker.


    Here it is http://www.roadfood.com/F...;high=Crepe%27s+cooker

    Don't worry about crepes with this machine. A traditional crepe does not include leavening agents...and the crepeish popover recipe supplied includes baking soda...and parmesan cheese...God help me. Don't waste all the eggs to make rubbery pancake or waffles...use waffle and/or pancake batter instead.
     
    Hmmmm....if traditional corn dogs are popular in the heartland  you do not want the wild version I thought up for this gizmo. The mayonnaise might put them over the edge.
     
     
    Great deal on this....like saving 90%.

    Another idea shot to H#$& 2009/12/18 21:18:17 (permalink)

    I fired up the waffle dog maker I thought I stole and found out they aren't worth much.  Maybe some are but the Cecilware WD-120 isn't.  It worked fine but here are some of the problems.  There are 10 holes for the hot dogs but they are so small a 10/1 won't even fit and be completely covered with batter.  They cook a lot more on the bottom than on the top and the appearance of the finished product is terrible.  With their size, the most I could probably get would be $.75 or$1.00 and it wouldn't be worth selling.
     
    Instead of a waffle dog on a stick, I did find something we may use it for.  I took a small precooked sausage and put them in the cutouts holding the batter (without a stick) and they came out pretty good.  The cutouts will only hold something 3" long so I wnd up with a sausage wrapped in a waffle that I may try and sell as a breakfast item at the shows where we serve breakfast.   I figure I could get $2.50 or $3.00 for a couple of them with a cup of coffee.
     
    However, for the price it was worth a try and lord knows I've tried many things that DON'T work.

    Gold Medal makes a five slot larger version that would work better for hot dogs and a variety of larger selections.
     
    At your price you could flip the one you have and invest it into an upgrade.

    You're right.  I may unload it on ebay because it works fine, just too small  The Cecilware is a good enough machine but the Gold Medal looks like it would work a lot better.  Still think it's a good idea, just needs a little tweeking.  Thanks.

    Don't know.  I'll have to give it a try.  Ham & Beans with fresh corn bread might be a real seller.  I'll let you know.

    Both units will cook corn bread as well as cake batter for dessert items but if considering both units from the start the Gold Medal version is much better for even cooking because it flips like a better structured  waffle maker. The final result will be a more towards the standand size of a corn muffin.
     
    You can use the  Cecilware model  to make items like fried cheese  & fudge puppies on a stick and if you use it for  corn dogs you can use cocktail franks in the corn dog batter instead of trying to squeeze a bigger hot dog into the well. More than one cocktail frank for each made or an order of more than one unique version of "cocktail corn dogs".

    Just as a consumer...I would totally be into (and love to try) waffles, corn muffins, pancakes, etc. on a stick. Could you use the machine to cook those (sans sausage or hot dog)? I do like the sausage idea too though. Much better than this:


    You could have a few of them drizzled with syrups and jellies etc. I guess fairs and such don't do much of a breakfast but it would be different than what others are selling.

    Yes...pancakes  waffles muffins cakes can be done on both without using sausage or a hot dog. The final texture of whatever batter used or alternate fillings in the batter (fruit nuts etc) will determine if it is best on a stick or just as a pancake  waffle  muffin or cake"sticks" with no stick attached. Very light and fluffly or overly moist works against the notion of  any sales a stick. It won't stand up and will either not attach to the stick or leave a gummy texture directly  on the stick sans a connection to a skewered meat  .

    Gold Medal also made a 5038 Belgium waffle boat maker with the same core and different plate.
     
     http://www.thecateringchef.net/belgian-waffle-boat-maker.html
     
    If only the plates could switch out.
     
    The core of the machine is very very good matched againt the best commercial Belgium waffle makers...for less money.
     
    ETR had a thread on cookies with a waffle maker. Biscuits can also be done.

    Hey ETR, I checked to see if I could buy these, Jimmy Dean wasn't available to me in bulk pack. I found two other ones that have been around for a while.
     
    Foster........60-2.67oz..........Pancake & Sausage on a stick.........20.46 case.........  .34cents ea
     
    State fair.....60-2.5 oz.......... Blueberry Pancake & Sausage on a stick.........22.98 case.......... .38 cents ea
     
    The fosters is made with a Turkey sausage and the State fair is made with Pork, beef. I will special order the state Fair brand and let you know how they go over. We offer our customers hot syrup for French toast and Pancakes, this item will go on our "Pick-up and Go" hot box menu and they could pick up a small cup of syrup to dip................I'll let you know how they go..........Billyb

    Billyb, here's a pic of them:


    That's a really cheap price. You could sell them 2 for $2. I don't know how popular they'd be though. I personally would be much more inclined to buy something like that if I could see it being made. I think too I would prefer just the batter without the sausage, either pancake, funnel or waffle...with a little powdered sugar and syrup.

    They say they use Jimmy Dean sausage and that 1 unit is 240 calories, 130 calories from fat, 320 sodium, sugar 9g, carbs 22g.
