Mini Corn Dog Muffins

Corn dogs are always a favorite of children!  These little bites are made a wee-bit healthier and they’re portion controlled.  This recipe makes 48 mini-muffins.  Serve with a side of ketchup for dipping.  These are perfect for a light dinner, lunch or even as an appetizer for kids.  Remember – hot dogs are a choking hazard.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8-10 natural turkey hot dogs (or all-beef), cut into 1-inch bite-size pieces

What you’ll do:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Combine the butter, applesauce, and sugar in a bowl; whisk to combine.  Add the eggs and whisk together.  Add the buttermilk and whisk to combine.
  • In another bowl, combine the baking soda, cornmeal, flour and salt.  Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients – stir to combine completely.
  • Spray a mini-muffin tip with non-stick cooking spray.  Spoon 1 tablespoon of batter into each muffin cup.
  • Place one hot dog bite into the middle of each cup.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the cornbread is golden brown.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes before serving.
