Storage

Store leftovers in a Ziploc bag for two days in the fridge. If you want, you may heat it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes.

These corn dogs can be frozen. Before storing them in a freezer bag, make sure they have totally cooled down from deep frying. Corn dogs can be reheated from the freezer to the oven by baking them at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15-20 minutes.

Recipe FAQs

With my homemade Disney Corn Dogs, what dipping sauce should I use?

What is a corn dog without a good mustard, and ketchup to go with it? I love to drown my corn dogs in honey mustard too. Sometimes I will even use ketchup and mayonnaise on corn dogs. Ranch and BBQ sauce are great choices as well.

Where can I buy skewers?

Skewers and sticks can be found in the craft area of major superstores. They are commonly seen in grocery stores with other culinary items like toothpicks and straws.

What is the best oil to use for frying my Disney Corn Dogs?

Peanut oil or canola oil are good choices for frying corn dogs as they can withstand high heat.
