The Corn Dog, Re-imagined

My husband and I recently attended a super fun aviation event in Florida: lots of nifty airplanes, very cool people and carnival food.  You can't beat that!

Standard carnival chow always includes corn dogs, the ultimate walk-n-go food.  Since I usually try to eat healthy, I got thinking about 'doin' the dog' differently. The result is still hand-carry friendly; it's bulked up on nutrition but only has about 150 calories (when you add some ketchup).  Nice!

  • Spritz some buttery non-stick spray in a fry pan.
  • Cut the hot dogs in half and then slice them down the middle.
  • Pan fry them lightly in the pan.
  • While the hot dogs are pan frying, microwave the VitaTop for 15 second in the microwave.
  • Carefully cut it in half.
  • Remove the hot dogs from the pan, and re-spritzing the same pan, saute the VitaTop halves.
  • Layer mustard, ketchup and hot dog slices between VitaTop halves.
