Corn Dog Mini Muffins

Everyone’s favorite corn dog made into the easiest mini muffins. Because everything tastes better in miniature size! 103.4 calories.

Welcome to Super Bowl week here at Damn Delicious! I’m bringing you a week of simple, party foods that are sure to impress your guests at your next football party.

On Monday, we had those apple butter pastrami sandwiches. Today I bring you these epic corn dog mini muffins.

Now, I first saw these on Iowa Girl Eats about a year ago but I just never got around to making it.

But seeing that the Super Bowl is just days away, I knew I just had to share this with you guys.

It’s so easy to make, and it’s well received by both kids and adults, especially when you dunk them in that pool of ketchup.

They’re completely addicting too. I think I was able to eat about 8 of these without even thinking! But no worries. They’re only 100 calories each!

I have featured this recipe before and wanted to share it with my readers again for my Friday Five – Superbowl Party Ideas over @ Feed Your Soul Too –

Hi, would these freeze well?

I’m sure they would freeze just fine but I personally have not done it myself. We didn’t have any leftovers to freeze! 🙂

Yes they do..when you hear it up in the microwave just cover it with a wet paper towel or heat it up with a cup of water next to it.

umm genius? Need I say more? Brilliant! I love homemade corndogs, but honestly frying anything is generally avoided unless essential. This allows delicious batter, the selected hot dog of your choice (versus whatever the brand name uses) and no frying. Heaven! Plus for what we do, finger food is ideal, and saves me having to do so many dishes!

I tried adding some jalapeno, think they’ll be perfect with tomatoes and salad (for a belly-friendly meal…)
I’ll try freezing them too (it’s just the 2 of us tonight so those littles guys might be too much!)

My husband gets so excited when he finds out I’ve made these for his lunch. I usually cook these in a square muffin pan so they easily fit together for storage and packing (cook time increases about 5 minutes). If you’re going to freeze them, wrap them in heavy duty aluminum foil and store in a freezer bag. I’ve stored for at least a month without any problems.

Thanks for the recipe. Not sure what I did wrong. all my mini muffins stuck to the pan. I did spray with PAM. Any ideas.

Oh no – I have no idea! PAM should do the trick. What kind of pan are you using?

They’re good but I had to nearly double cooking time to account for juices released from the hot dogs. I used Trader Joe’snatural beef hot dogs. They also stick a bit. I used a pan I use frequently for mini muffins and don’t have this problem.

These were delicious but mine fell apart in half and stick to the bottom as well…any suggestions anyone?

Oh no – did you use nonstick spray to coat the pan?

How would you recommend storing and reheating them? Thanks.

You can store in an airtight container and reheat in the oven or microwave.

Mine were a mess. I used Trader Joe’s cornbread mix and it completely stuck to the bottom of the pan. I couldn’t give to my kids that way 🙁 I used olive oil to coat the bottom.

Oh no – I’m so sorry. I hate it when that happens! 🙁 I find that it is best to use nonstick spray. Also, may I ask what kind of pan you are using?

I’m 14 and I just made these for my 6 family members!! They love and love for them!!

I made these last night. I did a substitution because my family eats gluten free. I used 1 cup of Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 instead of the 1 cup of all-purpose flour. They came out amazing! The only thing that I found different was the recipe says to use one 24 mini muffin tin and to scoop 1 tbsp of the mix into each cup but I had enough mix to fill two 24 mini muffin tins so I got 48 muffins. I just had to quickly thaw two more hotdogs to put in the extra muffins. I don’t really understand how substituting gf flour for the all-purpose flour would have made that much of a difference but I’m not complaining. The printed recipe also states that it yields 30 mini muffins. I did bake the muffins in my silicone muffin “tins” for about 20 minutes since I put both sets in the oven at the same time. I also used convection. I popped these guys in the freezer once they cooled and I plan on reheating them and putting them in my kids’ lunch boxes for school. My husband also mentioned that he’ll be sampling them for lunch as well 🙂 Thank you for another quick and easy lunch/snack/party food idea!

Hi, do you have to boil the hotdogs first before baking?

No, you do not have to boil the hot dogs prior to baking.

These are delicious! I did have problems with the muffins sticking as well. I only have one mini muffin tin, and wanted to make a double batch for a birthday party. I used regular Pam on the first batch and the muffins stuck, so after cleaning my tin for the next batch, I used Pam For Baking. No sticking at all! I also found that this recipe makes 34-36 muffins when using a tablespoon at a time. Also, subbed the hot dogs for the little smokies. Very good recipe!

Hi! So excited to make this for my daughter but I only have regular muffin tins. What would you recommend for baking time? Thank you.

I would estimate about 12-15 minutes but as always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Made this last night. So perfect! My whole family loves it especially my daughter who requested it. Didn’t encounter sticking problems at all. I used Coconut oil non-stick spray with my regular stainless steel muffin tin and bake for 15-17mins. Thank you so much for this LOVELY recipe!

Come join me in my culinary adventures where we’ll be using simple, fresh ingredients and transforming them into sophisticated and elegant meals for the everyday home cook.
