excuse me while I lick the ketchup and mustard off my fingers.
(And yes, ketchup AND mustard are necessary, at the same time, for maximum enjoyment.)
I feel like I’m standing at the State Fair of Texas where Fletcher’s Corny Dogs were first introduced in 1942. What? You didn’t know that? You’re dead to me now.
Let me school you a little on some Texas trivia. Carl and Neil Fletcher invented the corny dog in their kitchen in Dallas way back in 1942, and that year they debuted them at the State Fair of Texas. It is reported, over 500,000 Fletcher’s Corn Dogs are sold annually in the 24 day period the fair is open. Totally insane! But what’s not to love about a beef hot dog enveloped in cornbread and then slathered with yellow mustard and ketchup?
I love corny dogs, and I do indulge in a real one when I make it back home to Dallas for the State Fair. They sell frozen Fletcher’s at the grocery store, but no thanks. Just not the same.
Wait! I have found a recipe that is as close as close can be without having eleventy-billion deep fried calories from a trailer in Fair Park.
I present you with mini-corny dog muffins.
To make Feingold Friendly, use Applegate Farms Beef Hot Dogs. They are awesome! This will change the nutritional values.
Bon Appetit, y’all.
Original recipe from Iowa Girl East. Her site is awesome!
