Milisa Armstrong- Miss in the Kitchen
Corn dogs are one of my go-to dinners when I’m short on time. My boys love them, so I knew a homemade version made with our favorite Petit Jean Hot Dogs were going to be a big time hit.
This was my first time to make homemade corn dogs and they were really quick and easy. I broiled the hot dogs really quick to cook them and then I rolled them in cornstarch to help the the batter stick. It worked like a charm.
Corn dogs are a great treat for summer and go so great with your favorite macaroni salad.
