Corn dogs are great, but they can take a lot of work to make. These little muffins give you all the flavor without all the work.

Corn dogs are always kid friendly, but they can take a lot of work to make from scratch. Plus no one likes to use the deep fryer. It's messy, smells and is not safe for little helpers. These muffins are baked, taste just like corn dogs and are simple enough for even the littlest of helpers.

Corn dog muffins

Yield 24 mini muffins


  • 1 (8 ounce) box cornbread mix
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 6 hot dogs, cut into 3-inch pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray a 24 count mini muffin tin with nonstick spray, set aside.
