Korean Corn Dog – Extra Crunchy


Description

Korean corn dogs made with hot dog, mozzarella cheese sticks, and ramen noodle. This is the crunchiest way to eat a Korean corn dog. Other coating options available such as diced potatoes (nstead of ramen noodle), or just plain batter with no additional topping. Your choice, your way!
