Sweetened corn bread mixed with cheese and hot dogs. This is a bit healthier than the original corn dog and it tastes great and is perfect for kids lunches.
2 (8.5 ounce) packages cornbread mix
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
9 hot dogs, cut in half or diced
Makes 18 muffins
Variations: 1 can corn added to above
1 can of chiles added to above
I halved this recipe but still put the 1 cup cheese and added chiles and fit it into 12 muffins and it worked perfect except next time I will leave the chiles out for the kids sake. Make sure to use the entire half hot dog for each muffin or it won't taste like enough.
Stir together the cornbread mix and the brown sugar in a large bowl. Whisk the eggs and milk in a small bowl until smooth. Fold the eggs and cheese into the dry mixture until moistened. Spoon mixture into muffin tins until 2/3 full. Add 1 hot dog half to each muffin.
Bake in a preheated oven 14 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
