Recipe: 5 Ways to Jazz Up a Corn Dog

Featuring ChefsBest Best Taste Award Winner, Foster Farms Corn Dogs.

Using America’s best-tasting corn dogs from Foster Farms, here are some quick and easy ways to get creative with snack time.

1. Honey + Toasted Sesame Seeds

Honey’s sweet stickiness makes it an ideal dip for corn dogs. Just roll the resulting dog in sesame seeds and enjoy.

2. Pimento Cheese + Chopped Pickles

A Southern classic, pimento cheese can be made at home or found in the dairy case of your grocery store. Top with chopped dill pickles.

3. Sour Cream + Pickled Jalapeños + Cumin Seeds

This trio of cool — tart sour cream, pickled jalapeños, and crunchy cumin seeds —is a perfect complement to the sweet and savory flavors of the corn dog. Toast the cumin before serving for extra aroma and crunch.

4. Marinara Sauce + Red Pepper Flakes

If ketchup is your go-to corn dog dip, try this combo of simple marinara and spicy red pepper flakes instead.

5. Cream Cheese + Hot Pepper Jelly

Cream cheese has wonderful staying power for holding the hot pepper jelly in place. Swirl the two together for an amazing corn dog dip.
