Tips for Making These Keto Mini Corn Dog Bites

Use High-Quality Hot Dogs

All hot dogs are not created equally. I don’t love hot dogs, but I do like a few brands. Using quality hot dogs will ensure that you are getting good, quality ingredients and better taste. 

Do Not Overcook

Overcooking these corn dog bites can cause them to dry out and the taste will suffer a bit from it. 

Adjust Ingredients to Taste

If you prefer sweeter corndogs, you can add a little bit of sweetener. If you prefer less sweet, you can reduce the amount of sweetener you use. I’m a big believer that you can always make small adjustments to create the best flavor profile for you. 

What to Serve with These Keto Mini Corn Dog Bites

If you are looking for a little bit more of a substantial meal, you can easily add some delicious keto-friendly side dishes to these keto mini corn dog muffins for a perfect all-around meal! Here are some of my favorites:

Garlic Ranch Roasted Turnips

These garlic ranch roasted turnips are a delicious side dish to pair with these mini corn dog bites. This is a great option for when you are really craving a potato side dish. 

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

Do you remember enjoying mac and cheese with hot dogs as a kid? Seriously, they are the best combo. You may have thought those days were over, but they are not! This cauliflower mac and cheese is a healthy, keto-friendly option. 

Low Carb Keto Coleslaw

Are you a coleslaw fan? Coleslaw is a great side dish to pair with these keto mini corn dog bites. This slaw is easy to make and has just the right amount of sweet crunch to satisfy your salad craving. Perfect for a light lunch or dinner like these corn dog bites. 

What Sauce Can You Pair With These Mini Corn Dog Bites?

You can actually pair any sauce you want with these mini corn dog bites (as long as it’s keto-friendly, of course), but the following sauces are in my opinion, the best to pair with these keto mini corn dog bites:

Ketchup

Ketchup is a classic, delicious sauce to pair with these corn dog bites. Typical, store-bought ketchup is not keto-friendly. That being said, you can make your own, keto friendly ketchup and you can also buy keto friendly versions at the supermarket. 

Honey Mustard

Honey mustard is savory, yet sweet and pairs well with many recipes, in fact, they seem to bring out the taste of many recipes. These keto mini corn dogs are no exception to that. Dips like this are perfect because they don’t have a greasy texture you’ll find with mayo based sauces. 

Make sure to opt for a keto friendly version to keep your carbs low. 

Traditional Mustard

If you prefer a more tangy taste, opt for traditional mustard instead of honey mustard. 

Siracha Sauce

Do you want to add a little sauce to your mini corndog muffins? Siracha sauce is keto friendly and makes a great sauce to enjoy with these muffins. 

If you want a more dip-like consistency, you can mix the sriracha with sour cream or greek yogurt. 

Cheese Dip

Who doesn’t love a good cheese dip?! We all do, right? You can easily whip up some keto friendly cheese dip and enjoy it with these mini corn dog muffins for a delicious addition to your yummy meal.
