Take Back the Kitchen: Alma's Corn Dog Muffins
Hi everyone! I know what you're thinking: Corn dogs are terrible for you! Hey, well guess what? Not these! Sure, it's not the most nutritious dinner but if your kids are jonesing for corn dogs filled with garbage additives, this is a great alternative if paired with a nice helping of vegetables. And who doesn't like a cupcake shape?
My pickiest kid LOVED this so I will be making it again. I used my own cornbread recipe, added a bit of honey to it and used no nitrate hot dogs so my kids wouldn't get sick!
Corn Dog Muffins:
4 beef, turkey, chicken or tofu hot dogs chopped up
1 cup stoneground cornmeal
1 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup skim milk
6 TBS melted butter (plus two more tsp for greasing tins-keep separate)
1/3 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine all dry ingredients in one bowl
Combine all wet ingredients in another bowl
Mix the two and stir until fully combined
Grease a 12 cup muffin tin with the two tsp melted butter (use a bush or wet a napkin with the melted butter and rub into tins)
Divide the batter evenly in the 12 tins and then equally divide the cut up hot dogs and push them under the surface of the batter
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from center of muffin. Serve hot!
