My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Corn Dog Muffins

If this doesn't remind you of a state fair, I don't know what will. These are so much cheaper and better than buying corn dogs. Kids love these. So do I. Serve these with your favorite soup, tomato, Hearty Turkey Noodle, potato, etc.

I'm very funny about my hot dogs. I only buy one kind, Hebrew National, not just because they are the best, but because they "answer to a higher authority".

Corn Dog Muffins
Yield: 18 muffins

2 (8.5 ounce) packages corn muffin mix (Jiffy recommended)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
9 good hot dogs, cut in half

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease muffin tins.

Stir together the cornbread mix and the brown sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the eggs and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Fold the eggs and cheese into the dry mixture until moistened. Spoon mixture into muffing tins about 2/3 full. Add 1 hot dog half that has been sliced, to each muffin.

Bake in a preheated oven 14-18 minutes, or until golden brown.

COOK'S COMMENT: I'm posting this to use on Mama Kat's Writing Workshop. One of the topics I could choose today is "Meals you serve to your children in muffin tins." I promise I'm not being a smart-ass, but why do you serve your children food in a muffin tin? I guess you could give them a Corn Dog Muffin in one hole, soup in one, fruit in one and maybe pudding in one. I have friends who have grandchildren that would love to know about this. Please let me know how this works.


  1. They sound exotic... I personally don't like salty muffins ;-)

    -stopping by from Mama Kat-

  2. Kyrsten, what makes you think these are salty? The are actually a little sweet.

  3. I've made these before, but not with the brown sugar - can't wait to try them this way!

  4. If you want a good hotdog and you can't find Hebrew National's, Nathan's are the next best (only hotdog my family will eat)!

  5. Taren, Thanks. I forgot all about Nathan's, they are very good. I do buy those also.
