I added 1c. of shredded old cheddar cheese on top. I poked the cheese down with my finger so half was below the surface. This made them moist. Next time I might add some mustard powder, and use onion salt instead of salt. They were really bland, which I thought my little kids might appreciate, but not the adults.
My daughter loved these! I cheated and used corn muffin mix. I added cheese to mine and it was delicious! Thanks for the fun idea! Great for kids and quick and easy! Yummy too!
My kids liked these alot. I agree that maybe a few more hot dogs would be good. I might try with a little cheese next time as well. Thanks for sharing!
My 7 year old made this - with help cutting. Very easy, fun & appealing to the younger set, although my DH and me will enjoy too! We used the Albers cornbread recipe on box & light hot dogs to save calories. My daughter added a bit of shredded cheddar on top and one sliced hot dog for decorations. Too fun!
Very nice muffins, and a good snack for kids to enjoy after school. I added some cubed cheddar cheese to half my batter after I'd spooned my first 6 muffins into the muffin tin, and the 6 with the cheddar were tastier - only proving my theory that EVERYTHING tastes better with cheese on/in it! A definite 'do-again' recipe because it is easy-to-follow, quick, and kid-friendly.
These turned out very well! I took a couple of liberties: I doubled the hotdogs (3/4 cup of sliced was 2 regular hot dogs) and I put a few slivers of grated cheddar cheese on the tops of 6 of them. The recipe is correct; it yields 12. I think these would be great for a kid's party! Just tell a bunch of first graders that you're servine "muffin weanies" and they will fall apart laughing!
Used my cornbread recipe because I have one I love already but with the idea of adding hot dogs. Also had some shredded cheddar. They came out great, kids and adults loved them. I made some in a mini muffin tin which tasted just like corn dogs!
We loved these! I used the lil' smokies instead of hot dogs, and they were most excellent! I did them with one and some with 2 little sausages in them, and while I like the ones with 2 best, my husband preferred the ones with just one. They were great to have for breakfast too!
The way the recipe is written, I would give it only 3 stars, but with my changes, I think it is 4 stars! I listened to the other reviewers and added shredded cheese to the batter and to the top of each muffin. I added 5 sliced hotdogs. I also added 3 sliced green onions, both the top and bottom parts and some black pepper. I also added about 4-5 shakes of Tobasco sauce. And I REDUCED the sugar to 1/8 cup. I can't stand sweet corn bread. This was so easy to make. Next time I will also add onion powder and maybe tiny ham cubes in lieu of hotdogs. Great recipe!
My two grade school-age daughters and husband really liked these. Good quick weeknight dinner. Its like a corn dog muffin. I used bologna instead of hot dogs as that was what I had on hand. I fried up 6 slices of bologna and cut in in little bits. I think frying made for a better flavor. The bologna bits mixed in quite well with the batter. It did make 12 cupcake-sized muffins. This recipe will make it into my dinner repertoire. Next time if I use hot dogs, I'll chop them up and quickly fry them first for flavor. Other than that, no changes needed. Thanks for posting!
