We found Field Roast Miniature Corn Dogs at the store! Here's what we thought of these bite-sized vegan corn dogs.
Field Roast Miniature Corn Dogs
We actually tried Field Roast Miniature Corn Dogs a couple of months ago, but they kept getting put on the back burner. But they're on the front burner now, baby!
The short version of this review is that we both loved them! They are just so, so good.
The corn dogs are the Field Roast Frankfurters dipped in sweet cornbread batter. Then, they partially fry them in canola oil to get them crispy.
These reminded me of the miniature corn dogs that I used to get at the mall from Nathan's Famous. Back in high school, I worked at Lady Footlocker in the Broward Mall, and during the back-to-school rush, getting those mini corn dogs on our meal breaks was a store tradition.
These were just as decadent, and the texture and flavor were spot on!
Dave thought these nugget-sized corn dogs were adorable. He did point out that we haven't gotten them since, which I attribute to us trying to get our grocery budget under control. Such a decadent snack has been hard to justify, but now I'm missing them.
Dave thinks they wouldn't really work as part of a meal. I say you do you.
Dave also wishes that a company would create a vegan corndog bun that you could insert your own vegan frank into. Not like a hotdog bun made from cornbread batter, but like a tube of crispy cornbread coating with open ends. Does that exist? Get at us!
How to cook them
We make these in the air fryer at 400° F for 12 minutes, which works like a charm.
The package includes oven directions and microwave directions, though they do recommend baking, if you can wait. You bake these at 350° F for 20 minutes.
To microwave, cook for 90 seconds on high.
What are they made of?
Let's take a look at the ingredients for these! Let's break this down into its parts, since there's the dog and the batter.
