Corndog Muffins

Since we stopped eating pork nearly 10 years ago there have been several food items that we just don’t eat anymore. One of them being the corn dog. Now, I won’t lie and say I’ve particularly missed this food, though it was a favorite at carnivals (sooo greasy and delicious!) However, now that nitrate-free, all-natural hotdogs made of beef and turkey are more readily available, I don’t see why we can’t indulge in a corn dog or two. And since I’ve been working on some great lunchbox ideas for the boys, this muffin version seemed pretty perfect.

*I made these ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The next day  packed them into lunch containers with a side of ketchup. No reheating necessary and by the time lunch came around the muffins were warmed up a little and a bit softer.

  2. These look great! when I make chili dogs – we have regular hot dogs for me, kosher for my SIL and husband (we are not Jewish, they just like them best) and for Rocket and Top Girl?? what I call fake wienies! they are soy based. It’s funny on hot dog night here but these would make a great alternative and way easier to get in everyone’s choice of “meat”!
