Weenie Muffins- yields 6 large muffins, or 8 regular sized muffins

To make weenie muffins, you have two options, make your own cornmeal, or you can buy corn muffin mix. I bought corn muffin mix, just follow the directions on the box (1 egg, 1/3 cup of milk, mix well) so simple! If you’d like to make your own cornmeal, follow these next few steps. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cornmeal mix:

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/3 cups cornmeal

1 cup flour

2 eggs

1 1/4 cups milk

1/3 cup melted butter

In medium bowl, mix together sugar, baking powder, salt, cornmeal and flour. Beat eggs, milk and melted butter together; make a well in the center and pour mixture into well. Stir until moistened.

Either mix you choose, chop up 4 or 5 hot dogs (I used 5) into about half inch to inch pieces. Mix into cornmeal mixture. Add about a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Mix well. Scoop mixture into greased muffin pan, about 2/3 full. Make sure there are plenty of dogs in each muffin.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes in muffin pan. Serve with ketchup and/or mustard, or other corn dog type fixin`s. Delicious with tater tots on the side.



*note, these crumble a bit, beware 🙂
Also, I got the basic idea for this from food.com for back to school from home lunches for kids. My 11 year old  niece ate 2 large muffins. She loved these and said she wants them for her lunch at school. (She doesn’t eat a lot, so her eating 2 large muffins was a huge success!)
If you plan to make these for school lunches, make them fresh the night before and refrigerate before putting in lunch box, don’t forget the ketchup!
