Italian Sausage White Cheddar Corndogs

Italian Sausage White Cheddar Mini Corn Dogs

Just to shake things up a little…

Italian Sausage White Cheddar Corn Dogs
I changed the game on your corn dogs.

Don’t even shake your head. 

You know everything’s better with cheese. Not to mention, these are Italian sausage corn dogs. That’s pretty damn substantial.

I can’t help myself. One minute I’m mixing my cornmeal recipe together, and the next thing you know I’ve thrown in some very sharp white cheddar and cayenne.

So sue me.

THEN – I made this crazy dip that’s pretty much like pure crack. It’s sweet, tangy, and so very sexy.

If you’re not a dip person, you should be. I like to dip my favorite foods in all kinds of shit. It’s almost like food doesn’t come full circle for me unless there’s a dip or sauce waiting for it. 

Oh, you need examples? Go here, here, here and here

You’ll love the dip more than the corn dogs, more than likely, but don’t tell me that. Just enjoy.

  1. If we were at the same table and you asked me to pass the dip-I wouldn’t. You would need your own.
