Baked Corn Dogs and Homemade Baked Beans
Okay, I know those of you who know me cannot believe I made a corn dog...and honesty neither can I. I was looking through some recipes and found this baked corn dog. I knew the kids would love it, so I figured I would take one for the team! I had never made baked beans before either. I had no idea how simple it really is! And I had no idea those are white beans in there! I loved it.
So here is how the corn dog came to be:
Get your hot dogs on a stick! I used Hebrew National hot dogs and cut down some wooden skewers so they weren't too long. You can also use popsicle sticks.
Here they are all ready to go!
The batter is very easy, you just add all the ingredients and whisk. (recipe link at the bottom of this post).
Roll each dog in some flour and shake off the excess.
Spoon batter onto the hot dogs and coat evenly. (I'm not gonna lie, since it's baked the batter is thicker and you are going to have to spoon it on.) Place the coated hot dogs on a sheet pan lined with parchment and sprayed with nonstick spray.
Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove pan and reapply the batter that has slipped onto the sheet back onto the corn dog. Continue to bake for 20 minutes until they are golden brown. It was my first time doing this and I didn't read the REMOVE PAN AFTER 5 MINUTES part, so mine was a little crumbly and some had holes in them. Nobody cared.
Serve with all your favorite hot dog toppings: catchup, mustard, whatever you like!

It's something fun and the kids will love it. So much healthier than the deep fried ones!
