Mini Corn Dog Muffins

It’s my first official day as Hacked by Kate and I am EXCITED! Not everything is exactly where it needs to be, but hopefully will all be in place shortly.  More to come regarding the changes in a later post, but today is Friday and that means Foodie Friday! I am LOVING these mini corn dog muffins!

If you are looking for some fun lunches for your littles this is a great one for sure. A different take on a classic corndog that you can make quickly at home.

I made these as part of my freezer meals that I made last week after finding them over at Ring Around the Rosies and they are delicious and my kids love them.

  • 2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Bread mix
  • 6 hot dogs
  • milk
  • egg
     
  1. Preheat oven to 400 and line cupcake pan with foil liners
     
  2. Mix corn bread as directed on box.
     
  3. Chop hotdogs in toddler size pieces
     
  4. Add hotdogs to cornbread mix
     
  5. Scoop mix into liners and cook for 15-20 minutes

It is important that you use *foil liners* because if you use the regular paper ones, they’ll stick. Believe me, I tried it after I ran out of foil liners and needed just a couple of more. Don’t do it!

After getting them out of the oven I let them sit on the counter to cool for a little while and then packed all my mini corn dog muffins into a gallon size freezer bag to freeze them.

Now when lunch time comes around all I have to do it pull them from the freezer, remove the liner and toss them in a microwave for about 30 seconds and these mini corn dog muffins are ready to eat!

Luckily I have (pretty) good fruit and veggie eaters and so I like to serve this along with apple slices, baby carrots, cherry tomatoes and grapes and it makes for a great lunch for my littles.

What do you like to make for your toddlers for lunch?
