  • Baked Corn Dog, Muffin Style 7 of 9
    OK, so these may be baked, not grilled, but you can bake these in your grill if you want to stick to the theme. Just make them according to the directions, only preheat your grill to medium and bake with the lid closed. Check to see if they're done after 6 minutes, but they could take up to 10 .
