Food Services is offering its lunch patrons something different today: corn dogs. The battered and deep-fried frankfurters will celebrate the Sept. 10 National Hot Dog Day, says executive chef Paolo Vasapolli.
“It’s an initiative of Canada Takeout, which has been promoting restaurants during the pandemic,” he explains. “We figured we would mix it up a bit by making corn dogs instead of regular franks.”
The wieners are from Windsor-based Brenner Packers. Vasapolli adds a special condiment of beer mustard will accompany each hot dog on a stick.
At a cost of $6.49 with a side of French fries, they will be available in the Bru outlet in Alumni Hall and the U Club in Vanier Hall from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
