stfairI know you have heard me talk about Joey – Rex’s son.  He lives with us and one of his favorite of all time things to eat is corn dogs.  I recently received a coupon from Safeway online eCoupons for some Hillshire Brands™  products  – which includes State Fair Corn Dogs.  The other products in the group are Jimmy Dean, Hillshire Farm and Ball Park. Buying the Hillshire Brands™  products lets me add protein easily to every meal. I noticed the coupon because I had signed up for Safeway’s email blast that includes the J4U (Just for you) coupons.  I am excited to work with Hillshire Brands™ and with Mom It Forward Blogger Network on this compensated campaign.

I like to try to make our meals a bit more exciting than just corn dogs.IMG_0786 So what I like to do is think of other flavors that go with the corn dogs and dress them up a bit.  The guys in my family love the State Fair corn dogs and I feel good about serving them.   What I did with them the other day is I heated them in the oven as normal.  Then when they were hot I pulled the stick out and cut them into slices.  Then I put some shredded cheddar cheese and bacon bits on them and put them back into the oven until the cheese melted.

IMG_0785 I also made some adding BBQ sauce then some cheese and on top of that the bacon.  Joey’s favorite was the one with the BBQ sauce, cheese and bacon State Fair Corn Dogs. He has now challenged me to come up with some other options for them.

This week on the menu is State Fair Corn Dogs and Chili.  I am going to make a batch of chili this weekend to enjoy with the football games that are on (Go Badgers! Go Packers!).  Then I will slice up the corn dogs, put chili, cheese and onions on them.

I really like all of the Hillshire Brands™ products and appreciate that they help me easily add protein to my meals with out taking a lot of time but giving my meals lots of flavor and variety. Make sure you sign up for Safeway’s J4U email blast so you don’t miss out on the Hillshire Brands™ coupons when they come out.
