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?
- 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!
