Ball Parks Don’t Make Good CornDogs

Since our kids are literally spitting distance from their grandparents front door my parents like to keep their home stocked with certain things for those times we just stop by. Hot Dogs are on that list. This past weekend my mom and dad did their duty as babysitters since Rob and I had somewhere to go. Typically dinner with the kids involved a trip to Red Robin, take-out pizza or spaghetti & meatballs. This week I thought it would be the perfect time for Shae to hit up Pop-Pop for homemade corndogs. For some strange reason Shae’s been asking ME to make corn dogs. I don’t have a fryer but my dad does, of course.

The meal prep itself was fun. The kids helped with the measuring and mixing and then let Pop-Pop work his magic. While the corndogs tasted good they didn’t hold up well. We used Ball Park Angus Beef Franks-Bun Length. I blame the juiciness of the dog for the sliding off of the crust; that’s not really a bad thing though when you think about it. Ball Park Angus Beef Franks are perfect for the grill and that’s how we’ll continue to eat them.

Whether you keep the fridge stocked for the kids or for the unexpected guest Ball Park Franks are a must for everyone. Combined with other grill and bbq staples you have a full meal that is sure to please any palate. We all have our own recipes that include Ball Park Franks. Share yours with us, maybe we’ll try some.

  1. Gosh I’ve been craving a hot dog since last week. Now I think I need to give in to my craving! Looks like fun aside from the sliding off!

  2. Ooh yummy, I’ve never thought to make my own corndogs! I wouldn’t have cared if it fell apart, the fact that it tasted good is all that matters to me! 😀

  3. I’ve never made corn dogs before but really need to give this a try! My husband loves corn dogs – I think he’d live on corn dogs and macaroni and cheese if he could. 😉

      this was our first venture, while it was fun I don’t know how often my dad will volunteer his services LOL

  4. Popped in from SITS! Now I’m craving hot dogs…

  5. I have never even thought of making homemade corn dogs, I just buy them froze. Good idea though since my kids like to eat them.

  6. That looks So. Good. I’ve been wanting to pick up a deep fryer for years now. I guess if I don’t get one for my birthday this year I’ll have to just go and get one.

  8. Never had homemade corndogs.

    Funny you should post this – I have Ball Parks in the freezer and I was eyeing my Jiffy corn muffin mix thinking it would make a decent corn bod batter. Guess I’ll have to re-think that one 🙁
