Now let’s check out my healthy twist on the classic corn dog . . .
When I was raising kids, corn dogs held a place of honor on this family’s list of favorite foods. They were best when we got them from the vendor at the local Sears department store. Their corn dogs had a crispy, sweet corn breading on the outside, and a juicy hot dog on the inside.
If a trip to the department store wasn’t in order, I’d buy the big boxes of corn dogs and throw them in the freezer. They weren’t quite the same, but they ran a close second.
The kids are gone now, and even though my waistline can’t afford the calories, when a corn dog craving hits it won’t go away until it’s satisfied.
My healthy eating philosophy is that no food is off limits if I just make a few adjustments. In this case my mini corn dog recipe skips the deep fat frying in favor of baking them in the oven, provides automatic portion control, and adds a healthy slaw on the side.
Now I’ve saved myself a few calories, and I still get to enjoy a memorable corn dog while I watch my favorite football team stomp on their opponent. Sounds like a good weekend to me!
