Corn Dog

A corn dog is a popular American snack and carnival food, consisting of a hot dog sausage coated in a thick layer of cornmeal batter and deep-fried until golden brown. This savory treat is often enjoyed by both children and adults alike. Corn dogs are typically served on a wooden stick, making them easy and convenient to eat while walking around fairgrounds, amusement parks, or other outdoor events. Corn dogs can also be easily prepared at home by dipping hot dogs into cornmeal batter and frying them in hot oil. They are best enjoyed hot and crispy, often accompanied by classic condiments such as mustard and ketchup. These tasty snacks are perfect for barbeques, parties, or a fun family meal.

Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Corn Dog expire?
If you've bought a pack of unopened, pre-packaged corn dogs from the grocery store, you can typically expect them to last in the fridge until the 'Best by' date printed on the packaging. Once opened, they should be consumed within 7 days. If you want to extend the shelf-life, you can choose to freeze these store-bought corn dogs. When kept in the freezer, they can last for 1-2 months. The homemade corn dogs should be consumed within 2-3 days when refrigerated.
How do you tell if Corn Dog is bad?
To tell if your corn dog has gone bad, you'll first want to check the date on the package. If they are past the expiry date, it's safe to say they should be tossed out. However, if they're within date but you're unsure, check for signs of spoilage. If the corn dog gives off an unpleasant smell, has a slimy texture or if you see mold, these are clear signs it's time to throw it away.
Tips for storing Corn Dog to extend shelf life
• Always refrigerate corn dogs immediately after purchase or cooking. They are not meant to be left at room temperature for prolonged periods due to their meat content. • If you want to store the corn dogs for longer periods, freezing is the best option. Wrap each corn dog individually in cling wrap or aluminum foil to prevent freezer burn and store them in freezer bags. • For reheating, oven is best as it keeps the corn meal coating crispy. Simply preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, place the corn dog on a baking sheet, and bake for about 15-20 minutes. • When defrosting, thaw them overnight in the refrigerator for the best results. Do not use the microwave to defrost as it tends to make the cornmeal coating soggy.
