A year or so ago, I saw a recipe for corn dog muffins on Pinterest. I made a batch with the cornbread recipe from How to Cook Gluten-Free. They were cute andtasty. YAY! So for this year's Super Bowl "feast", I made a batch of corn dog bites instead of our traditional pigs in a blanket. Since mini-wieners were involved, I thought it counted as "tradition." Of course, I posted the photo to Facebook (as you do!). And Moreen asked for the recipe. I'm happy to share it!
The recipe comes together easily. You make a cornbread batter---I imagine you could use a gluten-free cornbread mix--and press a mini-wiener into the center of each muffin. Then bake for about 20 minutes. If you don't like to see a naked wiener (Yes, I got that as soon as I typed it. I'm leaving it there for us to giggle at!). Where was I? Oh, yes, naked wieners. You can hide the wiener in your muffin. (OH MY GOD. NO. THAT'S TERRIBLE. *whispering* I'm sorry.)
Let's try this again. Where were we? Hiding wieners! Yes! You can put the wieners in the muffin tin and then spoon the batter on top. As the muffin bakes, it encases the weiner. Either way, these cornbread bites are tasty.
That's it. No more wiener jokes. Nope! Just a recipe for corn dog bites and an apology. This post was obviously written by the 10-year-old who lives inside my head. I'm sorry.
