Classy Corn Dogs and Cheesy Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes

What girl doesn’t love summer? Sunglasses pushed back in our hair, different sundress for each day of the week, and of course our favorite pair of sandals lying by the front door… honestly it doesn’t get much better! Some of the funnest days I’ve ever had were spent at the summer fair…and nothing quite says summer like a corn dog right?? But these girls are a bit too sophisticated for just any old corn dog…so we gotta to find a way to dress our old friend up a bit. I mean a corn dog is CENTSIBLE for a low budget , but we need to make him fashionable enough to join us in the high life!

Classy Corn dog
Italian sausage 1c flour 1c corn meal fine ground 1Tb baking powder 3Tb sugar 1egg 3/4-1c milk (batter should be thick) Bake sausage at 400* for 25 min. Mix all ingredients,  Insert sticks in sausage. Dip in batter and deep fry them just until they are golden brown ( your sausage will already be fully cooked because we baked them) You can use a large sauce pan. Be careful and have fun girls!!!
I had a lot of fun with mine! I even dipped, and fried string cheese also!
I served my corn dogs with a side of:
Bacon Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes
6 large red potatoes
half a stick of butter
2 tbsps whipping cream
4 strips of bacon
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
half a cup sour cream
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 jalapenos chopped
salt to tase
Cut potatoes in fourths, place in saucepan, cover in water and boil until tender. Meanwhile, cook bacon, crumble and set aside. Sautee garlic and jalapenos in 1 tbsp butter just until tender. When potatoes are tender drain water and place in mixing bowl, add remaining butter, whipping cream, sour cream, and salt. Mix until smooth. Now add the garlic and jalapenos and crumbled bacon!! Mix just until combined… try not to eat them all!
