Most days we stick with simple meat, vegetables, healthy fats, and raw dairy, but sometimes it’s fun to go outside the box and make something a bit more nostalgic. A fried corn dog takes me back to my annual date with Dad at the Texas State Fair. We would ride the rides, say “Hi” to Big Tex, and grab a corn dog on a stick, dipping it into bright yellow mustard. As we walked hand-in-hand with the smell of fall in the air, I felt like everything was just perfect. After going grain-free almost 2 years ago, I never imagined I’d eat a grain-free corn dog, but it can be done! I used Organic Prairie All-Beef Hotdogs and I bought some tallow from US Wellness meats. I love that I can occasionally fry food for the family with a healthy, stable fat filled with omega-3 fatty acids, linoleic acid, and good nourishment for the body.
A few tips when making corn dogs – It’s best to use room temperature hotdogs, sturdy sticks, and heat the tallow to the right temperature before frying. Grain free flours tend to brown quickly, so fry these corn dogs quickly then put them in the oven to finish cooking. You can make them in advance and keep them warm in the oven for about 1 hour. They’re an ideal food-on-a-stick for a kid’s birthday party!
