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
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.
