The corn dogs and fried cheese were really yummy but to be honest - a real pain in the rear to make. I didn't have a really appropriate fryer so I had to work with a make-shift system. Not cool. If you have an a more supreme kitchen outfit knock yourself out with this recipe.
Classic Corn Dogs and Cheese-on-a-Stick from Tasty Kitchen
|That's the man-love's feet in my socks. I added some veggies and hummus for a little balance.|
|Mmm, fried cheese.|
Ingredients:2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn kernels
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 250 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.
Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover. Cook, shaking the pan frequently, for about 4 minutes, or until the popping almost completely stops. Remove the pan from the heat and when the popping stops, remove the cover and add the almonds.
In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then continue cooking for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the pan from the heat and mix in the peanut butter and vanilla. Drizzle over the popcorn and use a rubber spatula to toss to coat.
Spread the popcorn on the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Let cool completely before serving.
