During this pandemic, I’ve been very inclined to make fun food creations/treats for my kids. For some reason, a lot of them revolve around variations of corn dogs cooked in the air fryer. Believe it not, if you make a thick corn dog batter, you can air fry it in the air fryer without all of the batter just rolling off of it.

I was testing out corn fritters in the air fryer and it turned out so well that I had an idea to make turn them into corn dogs. Yes, it’s a corn dog with real corn in it. If you are using fresh summer sweet corn, the sweetness from the corn alone is enough to provide that hint of sweetness. If you are using frozen thawed corn or canned corn, you may need to add some sugar to aid in that sweet and savory aspect.

I really liked them with sriracha but they can also be enjoyed with ketchup, sour cream or mayo. I hope you guys give this a try!
