Correction: homemade knife-n-fork corn dogs. Here's what happened:
Actually, I'm kidding. Nothing "happened" that I didn't mean to happen. I actually followed the recipe minus one detail--the stick. I didn't find any at the store and I was pressed for time, so I decided to change it up and make them like mini corn dogs, only not mini. Besides, the stick just gets in the way.
Anyway, here's the recipe. It's from one of my new favorite sites, The Tasty Kitchen. (I could spend all day browsing that site. Don't ask me how I know.) It's super simple and quick, and you could actually make these with your kids--as long as you do the frying. My only issue with the recipe is the texture, and that is because of the corn meal I chose, I'm guessing. I haven't searched around to see if anyone has tips for achieving a less grainy corn meal, but I'm sure someone does. If you seek and find, fill me in! :^}
P.S. In the interest of full disclosure, I thought I'd show you some of the more remarkable, accidental creations of the evening.
