Here is Minnesota, the whole summer is ended by one of the largest state fairs in the county. The Minnesota state fair brings millions of people yearly (the largest single day is in the 270,000 people). Every year there is new and unique dishes that show up. For me, my favorite is the classic corn dog. The sweet corn breading around the hot dog is the perfect summer snack. Sadly this year it was cancelled due to the current situations going on so i had to make myself my own corn dogs. This recipe is very close to what you would get at the state fair. The preparation is simple and takes on a few minutes to make from start to finish. The honey give the corn breading a golden brown color and a perfect level of sweetness. Check out the recipe below.
