Corn Dog Nuggets

These adorable Corn Dog Nuggets are a kid friendly meal on a budget!

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.

    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.

    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!

    1. 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! 🙂
