Last weekend we took the kids to the Great Wolf Lodge, have you ever been? It’s an incredible indoor water park- a perfect vacation in the middle of winter! While we were there my hubby and kids indulged in some gluten-full snacks, including corn dogs. And boy did they smell oh-so-good. That is when this recipe idea came to me, just in time for the Super Bowl.
Game day or not, these little appetizers are perfect for any party. Just make these ahead of time and serve. My version of corn dog bites, does not even include the usual main ingredient, corn. As you know, I do not eat corn and have been looking for a way to make something similar to good ‘ole cornbread. Surprisingly, these mini corn dogs are not a far cry from the original and if I must say so myself, are addictive and delicious!
If you are going to eat hot dogs, look for organic, uncured all beef hot dogs. If you can eat dairy, may I suggest my cheddar corn dog version. And if you like a little spice, throw in some freshly chopped jalapenos!
Definitely double the recipe for a party!
