This Corn Dog Poutine is how we’re saying good bye to Summer this year. All of our favorite flavors right here in one dish!
It’s so sad, but it happen every year. The last couple of days of summer are here. I hate saying good-bye to my favorite season of the year but I guess we do have fun things to look forward too later on in the year.
Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas…it’s all good. Family, Fun and Food = all of the things I love.
BUT summer. It’s just the best that there is, summer cocktails and grilling, going on a beach vacation or just a trip down the shore which is actually a summer requirement for me.
So to celebrate my favorite season of the year I bring you Corn Dog Poutine.
What’s poutine, you might ask? Basically poutine is a french fry dish that’s covered in cheese curds and gravy, then you can add whatever crazy combination of meats or vegetables or even shrimp that you want to it.
And the more the better.
For this recipe I used a pretty standard cheese sauce, frozen corn (or you can definitely use fresh if you have it) and sliced hot dogs on top of crinkle cut fries.
Because crinkle cut fries remind me of the shore and that’s a good thing.
Bake the fries until crispy then pour on as much of that cheddar cheese sauce as you can handle, then add the corn and hot dogs to the top.
Now dig in.
The flavors in this Corn Dog Poutine are simple but when you put them all together it’s a home run!
- 6 hot dogs, boiled until warmed through and sliced
- 1 bag frozen french fries (approximately a 2 pound bag)
- 1 (14 oz.) bag frozen corn, cooked according to package directions
- 4 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 3 cups whole milk
- ¼ cup flour
- 4 tablespoons butter
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon dry mustard
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- Bake the french fries according to the package directions.
- While the fries are baking start to make the cheese sauce by adding the butter to a medium sized pot to melt.
- Once the butter is melted add in the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook for a minute, then pour in the milk whisking as your pour.
- Bring the mixture to a bubble to thicken, then whisk in the cheese one cup at a time, stirring until smooth after each cup is added.
- Season the sauce with the salt, dry mustard and paprika. Keep warm with the lid on until the fries are done.
- Divide the french fries into 4 bowls or plates, cover with some of the cheese sauce then top with some of the corn and hot dog slices on each plate.
- Drizzle more cheese sauce over the top and serve.
