Mini Corn Dog Muffins

Fresh out of the oven
This is my second attempt to make "Mini Corn Dog Muffins". The first batch I made (which I don't have pictures of) were a complete flop. My kids HATED them!! I don't know if it was the cornbread mix from scratch that they didn't like or if it was the hot dogs cut up into itty bitty chunks. Either way it was a no go.

I don't give up that easy though.......

Batch # 2:
-Box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
-Hot Dogs cut into 1" chunks

First thing I have to say about making them this way compared to attempt #1 is that attempt #2 was WAY faster!!!
What did the kids say: "Mom can I have more?" I am pretty sure that means they like them.
I did have to trim a few of my chunks so they would fit.
Before going in the oven

Here is my simple & fast recipe for my winner "Mini Corn Dog Muffins:

1 box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
5 hot dogs, cut into 1"chunk
1 egg
1/3 cup milk (I used lactose free milk)

Preheat oven to 400F and grease your mini muffin pan.

Whisk together the egg and milk before adding the muffin mix. Stir by hand until the muffin mix is incorporated, batter may be lumpy after stirring.

Spoon 1 teaspoon of the batter into each muffin cup, top with a piece of hotdog and then cover with another teaspoon of batter (did I mention how easy this recipe was?).

Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Cool 5 minutes in pan before removing.

Now you can either eat these right away or save them for later. I popped mine in the microwave for about 10 seconds just to warm them up a bit before my kids ate them.

Don't forget to dip them in ketchup or mustard!!!
