My husband loves corn dogs, but wanted something that wasn't deep fried. He went through a phase where he created a cornbread dough that he formed around the hot dogs and then baked...they were ok...but left a bit to be desired. So I thought of a way to make it even easier, why not make cornbread batter, chop up some hot dogs and mix them in and then bake them in a muffin pan. Ta da! Dip in mustard and you've got a quick and yummy snack to satisfy your fair food cravings. This recipe is very simple but great because you can add in whatever you want flavor wise - jalapenos to heat it up, cumin to make it smokey, maybe some herbs..whatever you like! —There'sAlwaysPie

What You'll Need
  • 1 1/2 cups corn meal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk - if the mixture is too dry you may need to add more.
  • 4 hot dogs chopped - the better the quality the better the taste!
  • 1/2 - 1 cups shredded cheddar cheese - to taste.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease muffin tin.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the buttermilk, egg and melted butter.
  4. Add wet to dry and mix until everything is just wet. Fold in hot dogs and cheese.
  5. Pour batter into muffin tin and bake about 20 minutes or until golden on top. Serve with ketchup and mustard.

I made some today and according to my husband, they were delicious. I froze the batch I made today--for his birthday--and will let you know how it came out of the freezer. Thanks for sharing!

I made these for Christmas Eve and they were quite the hit. I chopped up a half dozen cocktail sausages in the batter with the cheese then scooped them into a mini muffin pan and pressed half a cocktail sausage into each one. We dipped them into mustard or ketchup. Very nice. Thanks.

I love the idea of the cocktail sausage into each muffin! I will make for our next party, for the kids who inevitably attend. I know it will be a big hit. Thanks for sharing.
