      I’m sure they would freeze just fine but I personally have not done it myself. We didn’t have any leftovers to freeze! :)

    umm genius? Need I say more? Brilliant! I love homemade corndogs, but honestly frying anything is generally avoided unless essential. This allows delicious batter, the selected hot dog of your choice (versus whatever the brand name uses) and no frying. Heaven! Plus for what we do, finger food is ideal, and saves me having to do so many dishes!

    I tried adding some jalapeno, think they’ll be perfect with tomatoes and salad (for a belly-friendly meal…)
    I’ll try freezing them too (it’s just the 2 of us tonight so those littles guys might be too much!)
