I have to credit this one to Mrs. Engineer. I was bouncing ideas off of her about the Fattie Throwdown, and she suggested “Corn Dog Fattie”. From that I also put together “Sausage on a stick fattie” or “Sausage cornbread fattie”. I thought that this was funny, since Mrs. Engineer (who could easily be a vegetarian) has never eaten a corn dog, and wouldn’t even consider eating something from a carnival vendor. From that, my tribute to the Carnival: When making a fattie, snip the corner off of a plastic bag to make it easier to roll out. A small slit in the top also allows air to escape when rolling them, and makes a nice even sausage blanket for whatever you want to put inside. I started with a pound of Jimmy Dean and put 8 ounces in two Ziplock Quart bags. This is just the right size for bun length hot dogs. Rolled them flat with a rolling pin. Cut the sheet of sausage in half. Like I said, this was just the right size for a bun size hot dog. One down…three more to go……. I made three corndog fatties and one sausage on a stick fattie It was a beautiful day for some thin blue apple and cherry smoke. About half way done… Hannah (1/2 of my Cow Girl Team) really enjoyed the afternoon too! Mrs. Engineer is going to have to get busy and pressure wash and treat the deck! But I will cut her some slack for now, because she is busy mowing and trimming the lawn! Out of the smoker. Nothin’ but the best at the carnival! I used a tall container to help me coat the corndogs…later I got a shallow plate and poured the batter into that and rolled the corndogs which seemed to work better. Frying them up… Fried up the extra batter. Plated with mustard for dipping. Sausage Cornbread Fattie Corndog Fattie…….. Dipped in mustard. Mrs. Engineer loved the couple of bites she took of sausage cornbread fattie, and since this came from someone that has never eaten a corndog and could easily be a vegetarian, this means it was darn good. I thought Corndog fattie was pretty cool. If you have kids around, I bet they would love them too. Thanks for checking out my tribute to the Carnival.
