when i was in college i felt it was time to make (what i now think was) a ridiculous decision: i would either take up smoking or become a vegetarian. why those were my two options, i have no idea. considering my father is a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon, i figured the vegetarian option would keep me from being kicked out of the family.
fast forward a couple years. i'm in my dietetic internship. i became severely ill. hello, mononucleosis. after weeks of intense fatigue, horrible nausea, and generally just wanting to die, the first food craving i had was for a corn dog. really. after years of no meat, all i wanted was a corn dog. so, i ate one, and thus ended my vegetarian season.
i love corn dogs. until now it's been years since i've had one. and as i told a good friend the other day, gluten-free people deserve corn dogs too!
i know on first consideration, it's not necessarily a dietitian's smartest lunch choice. but clearly, sometimes, you just want a corn dog. not to mention, these are super kid-friendly and because they're cut in half, the size is just right. be sure to use quality, organic, nitrate-free hot dogs.
