These mini corn dog muffins will satisfy your corn dog craving without taking too large of a bite out of you daily calorie allowance. They are easy to make and are sure to be a hit at dinner time.

My kids LOVE corn dogs. So do I, if we’re being honest here. What I don’t love is all of the weird ingredients in the store-bought frozen variety. I also don’t especially love making them the traditional way at home. It is messy, time consuming, and deep frying? Come on. I need to quit that.

Here is my alternative, mini corn dog muffins, and I must say, it satisfied my corn dog craving without taking too large of a bite out of my daily calorie allowance. Certainly a LOT less than its deep fried cousin would have. As a bonus, my kids DEVOURED these. My super picky, would eat mac-n-cheese every day if I let him guy had seconds and thirds. You can’t beat that!

Start by mixing the cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, milk, and egg in a mixing bowl with a whisk. Mix well. Then drizzle the honey over the top. Not mixing it in all the way leaves you with little honey bits in the batter which I LOVE.

Cut up hot dogs into the desired size. I personally like a bigger hot dog to muffin ratio, and like the bigger chunks of hot dog in mine. You can cut them up small if you have little ones (choking hazard! EEEK!), or leave them big. If you cut them up small I suggest using several pieces in each muffin, especially if you make them in large muffin tins.

I also want to add that these little mini muffin ones would be a perfect appetizer! Fun, cute, and bite sized.

You see the ones on the right side of the photo? Those are the larger pieces of hot dog I was mentioning. Much better than the thin slices that are hidden in the batter on the left.

Bake these at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes.  Your oven may vary. Mine is a little wonky and has some hot spots, so check carefully. They are done when they start to turn golden brown on the top.
