Mini Cheesy Corn Dog Muffins

Attention, attention my bestie is in transit and I’m super excited. I fear that I’m about to fail him in the fun department because I have absolutely nothing planned. Really, who would want to be my friend? I’m sure I can have Pippy and Sophie entertain Scott until Nick gets home! On top of it all, I have nothing planned for food. Hopefully that will work itself out by tomorrow morning, but that still leaves the slightly awkward issue of dinner tonight.

Oh well.

Today I have a fantastic kid friendly recipe. Take a look at these Mini Cheesy Corn Dog Muffins. I heart them tremendously.

Recipe Adapted from Iowa Girl Eats

¼ cup melted butter

¼ cup Splenda

1 egg

½ cup heavy cream

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ cup white cornmeal

½ cup flour

¼ teaspoon salt

5 all beef, cheese filled, hot dogs, cut into 1 inch bites

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and whisk to combine

Add eggs and whisk to incorporate. Add heavy cream and whisk to incorporate

In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, cornmeal, flour and salt. Stir to combine. Whisk into wet ingredients in two batches

Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray, and spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into each mini muffin cup

Place one hot dog bite into the middle of each cup

Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cornbread is golden brown. Cool and enjoy!!

These little guys were so good. You could easily use boxed cornbread instead of making yours from scratch. Either way these little guys will be the hit of the meal!
