Who doesn’t love a corn dog?  There’s something gratifying about eating food off of a stick.  But I don’t really want something deep-fried and I no longer need it on a stick.  But occasionally, I still crave the delicious flavors of a corn dog.

EASY CORN DOG MUFFINS

These delicious muffins are sweet, full of cornbread goodness, and stuffed with a salty, fatty, meaty hot dog.  It’s hard to stop eating them.  

They’re great dipped in ketchup, but try dipping them into honey mustard or barbecue sauce.  You can also top each with a small dollop of pickle relish. So delicious.

WHAT DO I NEED FOR THIS RECIPE?

Easy is the name of the game on this one.  Six ingredients is all it takes.

  • Cornbread mix – I use the Jiffy brand, but any mix will work.  You could also make your own cornbread batter if you’re feeling ambitious.
  • Brown sugar – this is optional, but if you want something that tastes more like the stuff you remember from your childhood, brown sugar is necessary.
  • Eggs and milk
  • Cheddar cheese – I like to grate my own, but the pre-shredded stuff works in this recipe.
  • Hot dogs – this is a matter of taste.  I will only eat all-beef Hebrew National, so that’s what I’m using.  You use whatever you have on hand or that you enjoy.

HOW EASY ARE THEY TO MAKE?

First, use baking spray to grease a muffin tin or two.  This recipe makes 18 muffins.  You can do the math.

Next mix together the cornbread mix, sugar, egg, and milk.  Then fold in the cheese.

Fill the muffin tins and tuck in half of a hot dog.

Finally, bake and eat.  Could it get any easier?
