I found this corn dog muffin recipe and I just had to make them. Aren’t these corn dog muffins the cutest things? Since I like to only cook once and serve twice, I wanted to try to make these Corn Dog Muffins a little healthier. In order to make this more like a meal, I needed to add at least a vegetable. I decided to add a little dairy too, cheese. There now that is a complete meal, right?
Easy Corn Dog Muffins Recipe
Corn Dog Muffins
Ingredients for Easy Corn Dog Muffins Recipe:
1 package hot dogs ($1.00)
2 packages corn muffin mix ($1.00
1 can corn (drained) ($0.50)
1 cup cheese ($1.50)
ketchup & mustard for garnish
Directions for Easy Corn Dog Muffins Recipe:
1. Mix muffin mix according to directions on the package or make them homemade.
2. Add 1 can of corn drained and 1/2 cheese to the mixture.
3. Pour the corn muffin mix into a mini-muffin pan a little less than halfway. You need to leave some room to put the hot dog in the middle. The muffin mix will rise.
This made a batch and a half for us.
These Corn Dog Muffins are so cute with putting some ketchup on top with a little drop of mustard in the middle. We had 6 to 8 each and still had plenty left over for lunch the next day. I was thinking some sweet potato fries are a nice compliment.
The Corn Dog Muffins are perfect, since they are baked I don’t feel quite as guilty. I love the fact that these really tasted like corn dogs, since I never buy them. I don’t like to buy a lot of fried food for my kids to eat at home. These are great to make ahead and freeze for a quick and easy freezer meal on those nights you just don’t want to cook. Take a look at this ham and cheese muffin tin meal.
Oh wait you can consider the ketchup as an extra veggie, right?
