Corndog Muffins

If your kids are anything like mine, they would eat hot dogs for every meal. They're quick and easy, but not exactly the healthiest thing. (yes, I've heard all those stories about what goes into them and I still let my kids eat them). I like to change things up, and this way they eat a little less hot dog and maybe more good stuff (except my son who picks out the hot dogs and leaves the muffin part). This is a nice quick, easy, cheap and kid approved meal.

Corn Dog Muffins

1 pkg. Jiffy corn muffin mix
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1 tbsp brown sugar
4-5 hot dogs, cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 400. Spray muffin with non-stick spray. Combine the mix, egg, and sugar. Place approximately 1 tbsp of batter in each cup. Place as many pieces of hot dog as you want in each cup. Bake for 15 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before trying to remove or they will be really crumbly. Serve =) It makes approximately 12 muffins.

To change things up with it or to make it grown-up friendly, use brats, polish sausages or mini cocktail wieners. To make this a good breakfast food, use breakfast sausage with and mix in a bit of cheese. You can do lots with this. If you don't like hot dogs, leave them out and you've got a sweet corn muffin.
