"Have not tried this yet, but it looks like something the kiddies would love. Make a cornmeal batter, stir in sliced hot dogs and bake in muffin tins. Very easy to do. Since I have not made these, I am guessing at how many it makes."
Serving Size: 1 (69 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 12
"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!"
"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!"
"These were really easy to make and came out great. I made 12 and used only 1 egg. I added in more hot dogs as a few other reviewers had suggested and also added in pepperoni. I think next time I will try add in some onions, maybe some hot sauce and a few other ingredients to help give it some more flavor. These taste even better the next day. These are great quicky after school snacks and are also very portable. Thanks for sharing a different take on corn muffins."
"We loved these. I left out the salt, and added pepperoni instead of the weinies. Will definitely make these again! I baked 12 min."
"I loved these...just like eating corndogs AND I can control how much fat is involved! Win-win situation."
"I made these for lunch for my kids and my 4 dayhome kids. While they are good I agree with the previous review that it needs something else. I think next time I will add some onion, I think they would be great with some peperoni, some jalepenos, and a couple of shots of hot sauce. I did up the hot dogs to 4 and I would up it again. Previous posted mentioned corn, a can of cream corn would be a nice touch too. I will make these again for the kids but with a little tweaking. Thanks for a new idea for these fussy kids. I got 12 muffins + 12 mini muffins from one batch."
"The muffins were good. It was easy to make I added some small cubed yellow cheddar cheese. To make this muffins to tase more like "POGO", I think, hot dogs should be double or triple. I will try to make them again and update review later. I gave it only 4 stars because I thought something was missing, maybe hot dogs, or maybe next time I add some green onions for little extra. Thanks"
"We enjoyed these very much. My kids were surprised to bite in and find hotdogs! I would suggest mixing the batter in a container with a spout to fill the muffin pans, as the batter is very thin. "
"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."
"MY 4 year old loves "Pogo" sticks and they are not cheap. Had to fight with her to try them and she was not pleased. The rest of the family loved them and I will make again. I think I will add cream corn next time to make them moister. They would be great with chili. I have some in the freezer and will post later if they freeze well. They may make a good grab and go addition to the lunch box."
"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!"
