These homemade corn dog muffins are great for when you’re on the go and a great make-ahead meal for your kids for a snack or lunch that can easily be frozen
As much as we all like the smell and taste of a corn dog, I’ve never actual attempted to make them at home because of all the oil that’s required to cook them. I’m not a big fan of deep frying foods.
This recipe is a great alternative to deep frying your corn dogs and the kids love them. You can use your favorite cornmeal recipe or if you can find Jiffy cornbread mix on sale like I did, that will work too.
