“I’ll take the mini corn dogs please”. This has become Shae’s meal of choice at our favorite restaurant. At first I used to cringe at the thought but they weren’t that bad but I knew we could make them better. This was Shae and Shaun could have them for school lunch, something very different than sandwiches.
Using this packaged cornbread mix is definitely a shortcut. Honestly I’ve never been able to master homemade cornbread. Either the texture is off or the flavor is dull. This one is very tasty and sweet so it’s nice match to the salty taste of the hot dog.
Shae prepared the muffin mix according to package directions and mixed it up. I sliced the uncooked hotdogs into small bites. As you can see she did most of the work, like usual.
As she was popping the hot dogs in the muffin mix she said “It’s like putting a cherry on top just different”.
After 22-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven they were done. Package them up for lunches, snacks or even have for dinner.
Shae likes her with honey mustard.
