Super Bowl Eats- Take 2!

Last year around Super Bowl time I posted baked corn dogs. I thought they were neat and clever and they served a crowd. But I didn't really like the corn bread all that much and by the time it baked all the way through it was a little dry. Now I've tried MANY different recipes for cornbread and I still think Jiffy Cornbread is still the best. You can argue with me and swear by your recipe (and I've tried a few of those too) but I still like Jiffy. And at 35 cents a box, I'm okay with that :-)

So I originally thought I would take that pan of baked corn dogs and use Jiffy instead but then I saw that Coleen of Coleen's Recipes made corn bread muffins and I thought "duh!". Why didn't I think of that? Actually it was her genius daughter that came up with them first so ever since seeing them last summer I have made them. I made them every few weeks when I actually have hot dogs in the house- which is not that often. I like to buy Hebrew National.

So anyway, we love these and they are so simple to make. I like them with some mustard and ketchup and a spoonful of dill pickle relish. Mr. H likes to top his with chili. Each box of muffins mix makes about 7 muffins but it's easy to double or triple this recipe. They would be awesome this weekend at your Super Bowl party. Go Cowboys! Oh wait, who's playing?

Baked Corn Dog Muffins inspired by Coleen
  • 1 box Jiffy Corn Bread Mix (plus milk and egg as directed on box)
  • Hot Dogs (2-3) or Kielbasa Sausage
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese

Make corn bread mix according to the package instructions and set aside. Spray 7 openings of a muffin tin with nonstick spray and set aside. Chop hot dogs into 3rd (about 1 1/2-2 inch pieces).

Place a tablespoon or two of the cornbread mix into greased muffin tins. Add a piece of the hot dog and a sprinkling of cheese. Top with more corn bread mix filling each tin about 2/3 of the way full. Sprinkle with a little more cheese.

Bake in a preheated 400F oven for 15-20minutes or until lightly golden on the edges. Let cool for a few minutes before removing from tin. Serve with condiments of your choice such as ketchup, mustard, chili, cheese or relish.

Use whatever toppings you like on your corn dogs or hot dogs and let the kids have fun!

I hope your team wins!

Yeah, I love Jiffy, too. I still like the cornbread recipe I have (just add some more sugar, and it'll be like Jiffy or better) for special occasions. These baked corn dogs are too cute!! I like the fact that they aren't fried!

Jill said...

I swear by Jiffy... and I love corn muffins (when I'm making "plain" corn bread, I add a can of diced chilis and a can of creamed corn to the recipe. You have to cook them longer, but soooo moist!!)

But back to this recipe... man oh man, did I pick the wrong week to go back on Weight Watchers. I love corn dogs like nobody's business. Unfortunately, my boys are not fans (I know, right?). I'd love to make these for our Superbowl party, but I'm afraid I'd eat them all. Bookmarking this page for a splurge day. Thanks!!

I posted my recipe for cornbread today. And after reading this, I know exactly what I'm going to make for SuperBowl Sunday! I can't believe they're not fried! The stores here sell cocktail size hotdogs that will be perfect for this recipe. Thank you! :D

Heather said...

My boys would love these.

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Jiffy is our pick too. I have a couple of really good homemade cornbread (dolled up a bit) recipes, but we almost always use Jiffy.

I wish I'd had this recipe when my kids were still home. Hubby won't touch a hotdog...but, I'd love this.

I love corn dogs, and I love that it isn't fried. I bet those mini weenies would be great in here too. I use Jiffy all the time for my 2-Corn Casserole. Hubby once commented on the 8 boxes in the cupboard!

Laura said...

Hmmmm better than deep fried! Can't do jiffy though-yucky story from long ago. I'll def. have to try these though.

Lindy said...

I love Jiffy Cornbread mix, too. But I like them a little bit more moist than they usually turn out. So I've started to add 1/3 cup of lite sour cream to the mixture... and they turn out yummy and moist every time!

oneordinaryday said...

Perfect party food. And I like the one with the little soul patch on his chin. : )

♥peachkins♥ said...

WOW! first time I saw a baked corndog. It looks yummy too.

Diana's Cocina said...

Hi Monica! We have made these at my sons school and the kids love them, so do the adults =). These are so cute and fun to make. I love your photo of the smiley face!

QIS said...

these look so delicious!!Have never had it, but would love to try! =)

cookies and cups said...

I agree with you on jiffy. I have tried a bunch of homemade cornbread recipes and I haven't found one that tastes as good and is as easy/cheap as jiffy.
My kids would love these!

Smitten Sugar said...

yum! I love corndogs, I never thought about making them myself. You are too clever!

Joycee said...

I have a busy weekend ahead of me with all of the great recipes you've been posting! Can't wait to try these and the pretzels are calling my name too!

Debbie said...

Monica those are just too cute. That is a wonderfu idea. I know we would all love them....

Sophie said...

I've been wanting to make corn dogs but don't have a fryer, let me tell you, I think these are the answer! They are too cute. I could eat a few right now, it's lunch and I'm hungry :D!

Susan S. said...

What a simple and great idea! You ROCK! I'm bringing these with me to the Super Bowl party I'm attending...but I'll give you the credit!!!

Kim said...

These are so much fun Monica. I love the idea of topping them with all sorts of fun things.

The Duchess of Wessex said...

You are SO cute! Those muffins are ah-dorable!

Go Cowboys... Like a hot knife through my poor heart!

Like every Superbowl since 1995, I guess I'll just have to watch for the food. Sigh.

Love to you!

Katy said...

what a great idea :)

Melanie said...

I agree, Jiffy IS the best! And so cheap! What can beat that?!

Ingrid said...

Corn bread is one of those southern things I'm not so sure about. Adding a hotdog even more so. :)

They are VERY cool looking and I can see kids liking them. I'll have to ask my gang and show them your photos. (the danger in that is they could come here and expect much more than just the corn dogs! :))

Happy Friday!

Those look killer - I'm making them next week - have Sunday super bowl snacks all picked out.

A Feast for the Eyes said...

Genius, girlfriend! Hebrew National is my favorite dog, too. I don't eat them often, and I do love corn dogs (or is it corny dogs in Texas?) What a clever idea. BTW, I like Jiffy CB mix... but me, being a self-proclaimed scratch baker... well, I'll sneak it in once in a while.

Kerstin said...

I love these - so cute and creative!

Sam Kathryn said...

Awesome! I love corn dogs! This is such a cute idea.

Alessandra Foletto said...

Hi Monica
I love your Blog!! These corn dogs are looking amazing!! I tried this recipe last night (Super Bowl) and I post in my Blog http://thecakelandinenglish.blogspot.com/ .
Because I live in England I couldn't find the Jiffy Corn Bread Mix so I used a recipe of cornbread from Martha Stewart site and it turned out great!!!!
Thanks for the recipe I've never eaten a corn dog before and I will also try some more American dishes of your blog.

XOXO
Alesandra

Mya said...

Ever since I saw this post I can't stop thinking about them LOL

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh -- I am SO going to make these!!!!!!!! I love corndogs and this is such a great idea. I may even use little smokies at some point, but I'll try the hot dogs first. I'm a Jiffy Cornbread Mix fan myself and that is ALL I use. I love that little touch of sweetness. :)

Oh yes, GO COWBOYS! I live in Cedar Hill and have always been a Cowboys fan. :O)

Miss Fr3sh said...

These are insane! Totally genius!

chrissy said...

First off I love your blog! I read it all the time and I think I have made at least 10 of your recipes and I have only been following for about 2 months. I think I love seeing all the pictures of the ingredients as you cook:)
Thank you for making my day better!

Ella said...

These look awesome! I live in New Zealand and corn bread mix doesn't come pre-made.. Would I be able to make the mix from scratch and still get the same result..?

Monica H said...

Ella, I'm sure you could use any corbread mix or recipe you like and it would turn out just fine.

Thanks for stopping by.

Jen said...

We made these the other night and they were so yummy. I see so many things I would love to try on your blog and this was the first of many we have done.

Thank you Monica!!

Amber said...

These are soooo freaking cute! Perfect to take to work and share...you are way too clever!

Mya said...

Tried these. Love them! Thanks for sharing!

Hannah said...

I cannot wait to try these. Hopefully this weekend. Your blog is fantastic! Come stop by mine sometime... www.talesfromatimeout.blogspot.com

Andrew's Mom said...

A year later and I'm still referring folks to your site anytime they mention chili because these are perfect with chili! I make tiny little ones in mini cups as croutons for chili!

Angela said...

I just saw this recipe on Pinterest. Wow! I am in-love with your site! I'll be back- often! Congratulations on the delivery of your beautiful baby boy!!

Crystal said...

Thank you! I made these for lunch today and they were great! Everyone gobbled them up! Next time I'll double the recipe=)

Pam said...

I've bookmarked every recipe I've seen on your site! You make them look so delicious my stomach gurgles. Thank you for inspiring and sharing.

Yummy. Have made these in regular muffin pan with sliced weiners and can of cream style corn added to recipe.

Anonymous said...

Great idea!

How would it be to just cut up the hot dogs in small strips and mix them in with the batter before pouring the batter in the pan?

Jen Naus said...

OMG, Yum! I made these tonight, but I had Quaker Yellow Corn Meal and it tasted just like the corndogs we eat at our county fair, baked not fried. My 4 1/2 year old loved them! I will definitely be making these again! I think I'll be adding more hot dog pieces though. <3

Yum!!!!

Dee said...

Quick & easy with a surprisingly authentic corn dog taste. My kids loved these.

April Brasington said...

I made these but baked them in the mini muffin pans with a smaller piece of hotdog. Mini corn dog bites..wallah! Kids and adults both were crazy about them, these were gone before anything else was touched at our last birthday party!

Maranda Medina said...

I'm going to make these with the kids this week for dinner. I'm excited! I love Krusteaz honey cornbread! That's my go to cornbread mix. ;-)
