Cooking frozen corn dogs straight out of the fridge

You have to cook the frozen corn dogs in the same way as I have mentioned already for different cooking appliances. Only, in this case, you have to maintain the right cooking duration. For microwaving thawed corn dogs, heat them for 30 to 45 seconds at a high temperature. For baking them in conventional oven, cook the corn dogs for 10 to 12 minutes. In deep fryer, the timing is halved from 8 minutes to 4 minutes when you are cooking thawed corn dogs.

Cooking frozen corn dogs in innovative ways

If you are feeling adventurous, try cooking frozen corn dogs in the charcoal grill or gas grill. In case of charcoal grilling, set the grill to direct and indirect heating system and for grilling the frozen corn dogs in the gas grill, preheat the gas grill to a medium high heat. Once the gas grill is hot, create indirect heating zone. Grill the frozen corn dogs inside a disposable foil pan for 15 minutes till the internal temperature of the corn reads 160 degrees F.

Note: These directions are meant for 2.7 ounce frozen corn dogs.
