Corn dog muffins

Sometimes lunch can be boring at our house it's either sandwiches, leftovers or kimchi noodles.  I was inspired by a rainy, nasty day to do a little bit of cooking with the kids and we made corn dog muffins.  I was reading Michele's blog My Blessing from Above and found this fun twist.  I've kept it in the back of my mind just thinking I would make it someday soon, well today just happened to be that day.  It was super easy and so YUMMY, much better then a normal corn dog and the kids approved and said they now prefer these over a store bought corn dog.  What you need is a box of corn muffin mix (if you want the easy version), some hotdogs, muffin/cupcake liners and some big smiles from your kiddos.

I didn't have a box of corm muffin mix so I just made this homemade version, it's quick and simple.  Then, we just cut a hot dog in thirds and plopped it in the middle of the corn muffin mix and baked them....easy peasy!

  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
