Corn Dog Nuggets

Corn Dog Nuggets - it's the family's new favorite recipe! It's simple, delicious and is perfect for lunch, dinner or even a party!

I am so excited to share this recipe with you guys today! It’s a recipe that is SO simple to make and one the kids absolutely loved. In fact, we’ve already made it twice this month. 😉 It’s for Corn Dog Nuggets! I had spotted a similar recipe in one of my many Paula Deen magazines and knew I had to give it a try. Hers seemed a little more complicated, so I wanted to make it more simple. Fortunately, we loved how it turned out and are excited to have a new recipe everyone in the family loves. 😉

You see, we’re not super fancy around these parts and tend to have hot dogs or corn dogs each month. Because we have them each month, I feel like it gets a little boring so I wanted to be able to try a “new version” of this classic meal and was pleased at how simple and delicious they were. In fact,  they are so simple even the kids can help make them. All you really have to do is slice up the hot dogs, wrap them in small pieces of crescent dough and you’re done. Easy, right?

Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

    Oh my! This brings back memories. I haven’t had pigs in a blanket since I was small. I loved them so I have no idea why I stopped! This nugget version looks so fun. 🙂

    I’m going to show this recipe to my youngest son – I have a feeling he’ll want to make this himself for Super Bowl!

    Oh my gosh! How fun are these?? I think my whole family would LOVE these, but especially my soon-to-be 4 year old. 🙂 And I love how easy they are to make.

    I bought some similar to these but wrapped in puff pastry, and they were expensive. These look just as tasty! Try dipping them in honey mustard dressing. Yum.

    I bet you could even make a bunch and freeze them after baking! Then, when hungry, just pop a few in the microwave? Would be so convenient on those crazy days…..

    I feel like calling these corn dogs is very misleading. It’s more like pigs in a blanket

    Are the hot dog pieces meant to be cooked or raw when you wrap them in the pastry dough?

    This must be the first time ever, that a pin I found and made actually looks like the photo! Thank you for this neat recipe and the very good instructions 🙂

    I love the idea of putting these in my kids lunch boxes. I of course would use a food-safe washable cotton bag to help the Earth while I was at it. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

    They seem to be pigs in a blanket rather than corndog nuggets which sould be made with a cornmeal or cornbread batter. its

    Can someone please tell me what crescent dough is ? I live in Australia and haven’t heard of it. Thanks

  15. 23

    Can you freeze these corn dog nuggets? If so, how would you do it?

    I made these tonight. They came out great and the kids loved them. They’re bite size, which was great for my kiddos hands. Thanks for sharing!
