Corn Dog Muffins

It sounded ingenious.

I really like corn dogs.

I like corn muffins.

I like hot dogs (well… most of the time, and as long as I don’t have them too often).

So when I stumbled across a recipe for Corn Dog Muffins, it sounded perfect! Basically, you mix up two packets of cornbread mix, a cup of milk, two eggs, and a little brown sugar. Then you add a can of drained corn and five chopped up hot dogs. Pour in muffin tins and about 15 minutes later, you pull 1.5 doz lovely corn dog muffins from your 400 degree oven. Sounds perfect, right?

Well, normally I just spray my muffin tins instead of using paper cups. With these, most of them had issues coming out of the pan, so muffin cups would’ve been the way to go. Secondly, I like condiments on my ‘dogs… I tried adding ketchup to the muffins, but I couldn’t really get the quantities balanced, so I ate them dry. They were crumbly (hello… they ARE corn muffins!) but the corn helped them from being too dry, since it just seemed a little weird to butter it.

Well… final verdict: I was pretty disappointed, so unless Joe or Patrick specifically request these, I won’t bother making them again. We polished them off, but they weren’t nearly as satisfying as I had hoped. Oh well. It was worth a try!
