I feel a little odd admitting this, but hopefully you all can keep your snickering to a minimum. I really like corndogs. No idea why, except maybe that I like cornbread quite a bit. Odd part…I absolutely hate hot dogs. Real beef, fake beef, turkey…any of it. If it is a hotdog plain, I will not eat it, really don’t even want to go near it. Wrap it with cornbread, it’s all mine.
Now that we have that little randomness out of the way, I can begin to move towards the actual reason for this post…a recipe for HOMEMADE corndogs. No more store bought kinds with TONS of oil and/or preservatives. Plus, I think they are super quick. About as quick as pre-heating the oven and popping in frozen ones.
I usually serve these puppies (oo…pun intend) with homemade mac & cheese, but they can be served with other things for sure.
P.S. I’m posting how to make homemade mac & cheese next week, so be sure to stop back by. (HERE it is!!)
- 2 boxes of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix (this will make 12 corndogs, so increase or decreases the boxes as needed)
- 2 Eggs (1 for each of the muffin mixes)
- 2/3 cup of Milk (1/3 cup for each of the muffin mixes)
- 1 package of Turkey Franks (or All Beef Hotdogs)
Let’s Make These Puppies:
First, you’ll need to preheat your oven to 400°. Then spray a 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together the muffin mixes, eggs and milk. Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes to rise a little while you cut up the franks.
How you cut the franks will truly depend on how much meat you want in each muffin. We decides to cut each frank in 3rds. Meaning for the 12-cups, I needed 4 franks.
UPDATE: Looking back now, I should have cut 8 franks into 3rds and put 2 in each cup, because we wanted a little more meat in the muffins.
Next, spoon the muffin mix into each muffin-cup. I use the “measurement” of 2 heaping tablespoons in each. Then put your franks in.
Now you are ready to bake. Bake for 15 minutes, let them cool for 5 minutes.
Enjoy plain or with some condiments!!
