Corn Dog Muffins

This is a recipe I picked up from my mother in law.  It’s one of my husband’s favorites and is everything good about corndogs without the irritation of a stick and with the addition of being able to control the fat and calories.  Baked not fried and all that.  Very kid friendly.  Sometimes we’ll make this as a meal on its own, sometimes we serve it with other things (tonight, that would be chili). Either way, they’re lovely and moist and tasty.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boxes Jiffy mix cornbread
  • 1 can creamed corn
  • 2 eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 1 package of hot dogs, cut into bite sized pieces (here’s where you can really adjust for fat, calories, allergies, vegetarian, whatever)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix the Jiffy mix, creamed corn, eggs, and milk until well combined.
  3. Spray your muffin tins (you will need 3 6-cup tins) with cooking spray.
  4. Spoon the cornbread batter into each cup (about halfway full).
  5. Press hot dog bites into each muffin cup.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Remove to wire racks to cool.

    I just stumbled across this, and I love cornbread, however, I don’t eat meat. Obviously cornbread can be eaten with nothing special added to it, but I was wondering if you had any thoughts on any non-meat item that would go well in them? =)

      Non meat. Hmm…well of course cheese is always good in anything. And I bet you could use mushrooms or peppers to good effect. You might try veggie dogs?
