National Hot Dog Day – With Mason Jar Corn Dogs in 3 Easy Steps

In case you’re unaware (and no worries if you are) July was deemed National Hot Dog Month by the NHDSC. What’s more, however, is that today–July 23rd–is National Hot Dog Day! So, to celebrate the launch of AND National Hot Dog Day we are giving you a few awesome ideas for hot dogs with mason jars.

Before we get into the recipe for baked corn dogs in mason jars, check out the video below on canning hot dogs. *Remember to use the Pressure Canner, and not the waterbath canning method.

Pretty cool, right? Canning is great for some adding flavor and storing without the need for a freezer.

  • In a stand mixer, mix everything except the hot dogs together until smooth.

Step 2 – Pour

  • Pour into 12 greased half-pint mason jars, filling to about 4 ounces (a little more than halfway up the jar).
  • Place hot dog halves up-right in the center of the batter.
