Corn Dog Muffins

I saw a blog post recently that contained some easy lunch ideas.   One of the ideas was so intriguing, i just had to try it out!  You see, my kids love corndogs.   Personally, I've never been a fan of the batter on the store-bought kind.  Plus, those are pretty expensive.

I used to buy the cheap Jiffy cornbread mixes.  They were the cheapest and our favorite, but I've recently been trying to make more things from scratch, and I found this recipe that we all LOVE!  I just had to try these out with our favorite new cornbread!

Here they are before I baked them.  The recipe said it made 12 servings.  I almost doubled it, but didn't have enough butter.  I'm glad I didn't because I actually got 22 muffins out of it.


 I thought that the hot dogs were going to show on top, but the batter baked up all around them.  My girls saw them in the oven and thought I was giving them cupcakes for lunch.  As if!

They were sooo good!  My oldest actually had three of them!  After we all ate, I bagged the rest up and froze them for later lunches.

I've frozen this particular cornbread before, and I know it thaws well, so I'm hoping the hot dogs fare well, also.   I've frozen whole packages before, but never after cooking them.  Anybody done this?

This is a staple in our freezer. I love them with beans and greens for supper or they work great for lunchboxes too.

I slice the hot dogs lengthwise into quarters and then slice them. Then I add them to each muffin cup and mix them into the batter.

I use any cornbread mix, and add hot dogs around 9 per 16 oz of cornbread mix (depending on whether they are big or sm hot dogs, you can use more or less). Like GhostMom, I cut them into small pieces. I add 1 cup cheese, and we sometimes add a couple tbsp of brown sugar. - Yummy!

OOPS, I meant to add that I just make the cornbread according to pkg directions, adding the hot dogs, cheese and some times brown sugar.

Glad to know they will freeze well Pary! I may have to try cutting smaller little one-carnivore that she is--pulled the hotdog out and left the rest behind! ;) Cheese sounds great too! Mmmm and maybe some chili! =D
