State Fair inspired Baby Sausage Dogs has cornmeal breading on a Lil smokey sausage. You can make this kid-approved, family favorite any time of year!
I had an idea to tempt Lincoln to try new food. You see, he’s a terribly picky eater. I totally understand that.
I wanted to make small corn dogs, but I knew Lincoln would not dare try them. Usually, if he helps make something, he’ll at least try it. I thought if we used Lil Smokies instead of hot dogs that I would have a better chance.It was a total success. Both Lincoln and Ryder helped make these Baby Sausage Dogs. And both ate and liked them! Score!!
These are my two babies! Lincoln and Ryder. They’re as different as daylight and dark. Lincoln (left) won’t at anything. Ryder eats everything. We actually did a Fifty New Foods Challenge for Lincoln last year to try and expand his food appreciation.Here are a couple of dishes that he tried and liked!
Chicken Taco Bites
JP’s Steak Bites
Molasses Glazed Pork Tenderloin
We’re still working on fruits and vegetables!

Look what else we made! Fried Oreos!
I had Oreos from this recipe and gave it a whirl. The boys had never seen Fried Oreos at the Fair so it was big fun to them!
