If you are tired of buying frozen corn dogs and looking for an easy corn dogs recipe - look no further!
My children absolutely love corn dogs. I mean seriously love them. When we have homemade corn dogs in the freezer, they know that it is an easy lunch that they can make on their own (they just stick them in the microwave for a minute). I have had many an argument with my oldest over the number of corn dogs that he can eat at one sitting. Granted, he is a 12-year-old boy and his appetite is increasing exponentially, but I have to draw the line at no more than 2 corn dogs for any meal!
We had been buying pre-made corn dogs for years, but now that we have this easy corn dogs recipe, we won't be buying them any longer. These are so easy to make, the kids love them and they freeze beautifully! I can even get my children involved in making them and they really love helping. Sure - I'm not yet ready for them to be cooking with boiling oil, but they can help with everything else - and they love being able to make one of their favorite meals!)
You can make these with full-size hot dogs, but I prefer to cut the hot dogs in half and make "half dogs". By doing it this way, I have ready appetizers as well as portion-controlled meals. My oldest may eat all 4 "halves", my middle child will eat 3 "halves" and my daughter will eat 2 "halves. It cuts down on wasted food!
These can easily be frozen after you have fried them! Just wait until they have cooled completely (seriously - make sure they are room temperature or else they will get completely soggy) and store in a freezer bag. To re-heat, simply pull out as many as you need and either bake them at 350F until heated through or put them in the microwave for a minute.
