  1. We thought these were pretty good. My kids really enjoyed them. I'm not sure if it's really my favorite way to have corn dogs. But it was really simple to make. We didn't use bratwursts we used regular hot dogs. Thank you for the new recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
  2. These were wonderful and not fried, too! I used Cheddar Wurst. The kids' eyes were bigger than their stomachs with these. I used recipe#168802 for the dough. Thanks, Pamela!
