Who doesn’t like a good corn dog? Just don’t read the label right? We love corn dogs in our family and to see them at the fair all golden on a stick. Weee! But oh the fat and chemicals involved with making them taste so good is enough to scare me more than the Halloween decorations that are out this time of year. So I came up with the home baked from scratch version and they are pretty good. Nothing like the stick kind but with this version I can control the hot dog brand- I like the uncured kind, and know that this from scratch version has no preservatives.
11 hot dogs- odd number, I know!
Preheat oven to 425°. In a stand mixer, mix all of the ingredients together leaving out the hot dogs of course! Once the mix is smooth, pour into a very greased 9×13 inch baking dish. Place the hot dogs in the batter according to the picture (I only had 10 hot dogs). Bake for 22-25 minutes or until corn bread is cooked through. Let cool slightly, then with a sharp knife cut around each hot dog insuring each dog is surrounded by corn bread. Serve with favorite condiments. Makes 11 Corn Dogs.
Another great and easy peasy sandwich is Mini Ham and Cheese Rolls!
A Constant Source of Entertainment: Funny Faces
The other day in Target my kids were making these faces in the big mirror by the check out. They were having a good ole time with their crazy shenanigans all the while laughing and pressing their goofy little faces on to the glass. After I paid, I caught on to their mischief and about laughed my liver off.
“Um kids, that’s a two way mirror,” I informed them.
“What’s that?” they all asked.
“There are people behind there who can see you but you can’t see them, go on and wave to them.” I directed.
They waved and the invisible person behind the mirror shone a flashlight through the glass so the kids could see them. I left with three very embarrassed and mortified kids, while I basked in their humiliation. Kids.
PS- I went to Target the very next day and their little face smudges were still there. Sniffle.
