Corn-Dog Nuggets!


My kids love to dip their food{it makes eating more fun apparently}.

If a meal is dippable…then it’s a winner in their eyes.

I love these little Corn-Dog Nuggets cause they are soo simple and easy to make {not to mention affordable!}. They taste great, and of course…they are kid approved!

Check out these ingredients:
1 box of Jiffy Corn muffin mix ($0.38)
1 egg ($0.10)
1/3 cup milk ($0.05)
4 hot dogs ($0.88)
{Total Cost: $1.41}

What a great meal for those of us on a budget!

So here’s how you put it together:

Prepare the Corn Muffin Mix according to the box’s directions. Grease a mini-muffin tin and spoon the mixture in by the teaspoon full.

Cut your hot dogs into bite-sized pieces and place on top of the muffin mix.

Spoon about one and a half teaspoons of the mix over each hot dog. {I did half regular and half with cheese added.}

Bake at 350 for 15-20 min. or until golden brown on top.

Such a simple and tasty meal your kids will love. {Ok, I loved them too!}

What’s your kid’s favorite dippable food?

    How on earth do you get these to NOT turn into a crumbly mess?!? I just made them (in regular-size muffin tins, but that was the only difference) and I couldn’t get them out in anywhere close to one piece. The cornbread just crumbled to bits. So we had cornbread crumbles and little tiny hotdogs for dinner – NOT what I was going for!! Lol. I really like the idea of these though, so please – any help or tips you might have would be more than welcome!

    • Hi Michelle! It sounds like your cornbread could use a little bit more moisture. Make sure you have the right amount of liquids called for on the box, then you could also add 1/2 cup of sour cream which will give the cornbread a nice smooth texture, (and help it stick together better). I would also make sure to spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray before adding the batter. Hope that helps! :)

  2. I have to convey my respect for your kindness for all those that
    demand guidance on this one field. Your special commitment to passing the answer up and down has been extremely functional
    and has continually empowered most people just like me to attain their dreams.

    Your amazing insightful information entails a lot to me and specifically to my peers.

    Thanks a ton; from all of us.

  3. Add a can of creamed corn to your corn bread mix, so moist and delicious!

  4. Can these be frozen once cooked?

  5. This was a super easy recipe. They did come out a little dry, but next time I’ll add some sour cream or creamed corn as other commenters suggested, and probably reduce cooking time. But I will definitely make these again.
