Corn Dog Muffins - Football Friday

Friday, September 21, 2012

It tailgating time again!  I've seen these corn dog muffins all over Pinterest and decided to give them a try.  I  made the cornbread from scratch, but you could use a box of cornbread mix if you prefer.  These were quick and delicious!  Chicken Legs doesn't like hot dogs, but agreed that these corn dog muffins were excellent.  They are great for watching the big game or even dinner.  Serve them with some mustard or ketchup for a crowd pleasing great snack!

Corn Dog Muffins
48 mini-muffins
(Printable Recipe)

2 eggs
1 1/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup honey
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups cornmeal
8 hot dogs (or turkey dogs)

Preheat oven to 400.  Lightly spray a mini-muffin pan with cooking spray.

Cut each hot dog into 6 1-inch pieces.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, buttermilk, honey and melted butter.  Slowly stir in flour, baking powder, salt and cornmeal.  Stir until combined.

Drop one tablespoon of cornbread into each mini-muffin cup.  Place one hot dog slice into the middle of each muffin cup.

Bake 10-12 minutes, until cornbread is golden.  Allow to cool and serve with mustard, ketchup, ranch or BBQ sauce.

Pin It!
