Baked Turkey Corn Dogs (for lunch or dinner)
What numbers do you keep up with? Passwords? PIN? Numbers that show up in a dream, or perhaps your weight? Now that I am knock-knock-knocking on forty there’s a few numbers I keep in mind – and I’m not talking weight. Growing up my only concern was making sure I didn’t have scoliosis when the school nurse checked my spine once a year. I am now ever mindful of the numbers associated with my blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. Numbers I’ve heard my mama talk about for years have now too become my concern. Goodness gracious! Now, I have to ward off anything that may potentially set these numbers on an upward trend. The first place to start? Fried foods. Truth be told, I do love a good fried anything. Confession: One time I tried to fry a ground turkey patty. Just to see what it would taste like (just in case you were wondering, my taste buds were not impressed). I am no longer in denial that I can’t live so foot loose and fancy fried free. Fried foods have to be a luxury in which we indulge in every once in a while, like birthday cake or Thanksgiving dinner. One of my first changes on the fried food front is turkey corn dogs. I have tried this corn dog recipe fried and they are delicious. Just like they came from the state fair – or so I like to think. But, looking at numbers we will stick to this baked version – at least more than once in a while. *Note: Extras work well in the lunch box!
