Are you ready??! The BIG day of snacking is almost here! No, it’s not a holiday (although it should be)..no, it’s not a family reunion, or a day of TV marathons..it’s THE SUPER BOWL! The day when I know nothing about the actual game, and everything about the kitchen..lol!
And I’m totally fine with that. I can still kind of tell what’s going on when the screaming gets super loud..that means there’s either a touchdown..or they ran out of bacon! 😉 And that’s all I need to know..haha!
For the big game-day menu, I decided to stay true to my game-day, go-to favorites of bites, sliders, poppers and dips. I never, and I mean NEVER go wrong when I serve piles of teeny tiny, pop in your mouth..remote control friendly, bites of delicious delights!
And I started with this winner!
There’s no cheating here, we have undeniable proof-of-flavor with each super simple, mini-sausage/corn dog bite that will never be disputed! Each adorable little one-bite corn dog is stuffed with a Lil’ Smokie and coated in the best, corn filled batter EVER..Oh..and then fried to an amazing crisp! The combo of the sweet pop from the whole kernel corn, and that nutty, crispy Cornbread is a WINNER! Dip them into some ketchup and/or mustard..and you have a touchdown > In. Your. Mouth!
~Your biggest challenge will be making sure you’re not tackled when you serve them! 🙂
What you’ll need:
1 bag-(14oz.)Lil’ Smokies
1 box (15 oz.) Corn Bread Mix
1 can (15 oz.) Whole Kernel Corn..drained
Oil for frying..I used Canola
Flour ..just for dusting
Dips..Mustard, Ketchup etc.!
In a medium bowl, mix up the Cornbread batter according to the package instructions, add in the can of drained corn…
Dust the Lil’ Smokies with a light coating of flour, and dip them..one at a time into the batter..making sure to coat them as evenly as you can…
Place them gently and immediately into the hot (350 degree) oil, and fry them until they’re golden on all sides…
Let them drain and cool for just a few minutes, then serve them up…listen for the Ooh’s and Ahh’s! You will think there was a touchdown..but no..this was ALL YOU! 🙂
Don’t forget the dips..(NO, not the guys watching the game..lol)..the Mustard, Ketchup and anything else you like..silly!
And DIG IN! ~Enjoy! 🙂
