While my family was at the beach this summer my dad bought a big box of frozen corn dogs.  My kids complained about them and said they weren’t good.  It’s something we normally don’t buy, but I was surprised.  They would typically beg for this at the grocery store, so I thought they would be in heaven!

These homemade corn dogs are the BOMB! The best part is that this recipe is egg free! My kids gave them two thumbs up and begged for more.

Egg Free Homemade Corn Dogs

When we got home from vacation I thought I would try making homemade corn dogs.  I never eat them because they normally have eggs and I’m allergic so I thought I would experiment and make some I could eat too.  

Maybe the kids would like my version better than the store bought ones.  I pulled out the Fry Daddy and got going.  These egg free homemade corn dogs are the best.  My kids loved these much better than the frozen ones.

There’s a little debate on exactly who invented the corn dog, but they’ve been around since the 1930’s (or at least something similar to corn dogs).  

Corn dogs became more popular in the 1940’s and 50’s and sold at fairs.  It’s actually one of the healthier foods at fairs.  Most people grew up eating corn dogs so it usually brings back good memories!

These corn dogs aren’t something I would normally make on a busy school night, but a weekend, summer day or Christmas break when we don’t have anything going on.  You just need a tad more time to cook them in batches.
