In my original blog I just intermingled the recipes I mentioned in the blog. Many found this hard to follow. So in an effort to make the blogs more user friendly I am posting all the recipes and how to's for all the blogs here. I hope you like this new format. -Jan `

Week # 3- Muffin Tin Corndogs

Serving Size  : 12    Preparation Time :0:10

Categories    : Breads,Breakfast Foods,                 Sandwiches, Variety Meats

Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation
--------  ------------  -------------------------
  6       whole       wieners -- cut in half

  1       cup         Cornbread Master Mix

  8       tablespoons flour, all-purpose

1/2       teaspoon    dry mustard -- scant

  1       pinch       paprika

  2       whole       eggs -- slightly beaten

  4       tablespoons water

Mix dry ingredients together and then stir in egg and water until well blended the dough will be slightly stiff. If dough is too thick to pour add a little more water.  

Dry wieners thoroughly. 

Preheat your oven to 425 F.  Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. 

Fill each muffin tin about 1/3 full. 

Add 1/2 a wiener to each muffin tin 

Add the remaining batter evenly between the 12 cups. 

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown 


If you prefer the traditional fried corn dogs then put the batter into a glass.  Leave the hot dogs whole and add a scewer to one end and dip into the batter, turning until the batter is smooth on the hot dog.  Sometimes it is better to dust the hot dog with cornstarch to make the batter stick.  Fry in vegetable oil in a heavy sauce pan until golden brown. Use tongs to put the corndogs in and out of the hot oil for safety.  

Substitute small sections of various link sausages for a variety of meals. 

Brown and crumble breakfast or bulk sausage of any type, drain and mix into the batter for a muffin type dog. 

  "A non-fried version of a fair favorite."

Serving Ideas : Serve with fries, salad, mac 'n cheese or any other favorite corndog side for lunch or dinner.  If you are using breakfast sausages consider adding butter, maple syrup, or eggs along side them.

FOOD STORAGE IDEA: These can be frozen raw or cooked for quick individual lunches.  Freeze the raw dough and wieners in the muffin tins, then pop out once frozen.  Vacuum seal, label with both the contents and the cooking time.  Raw ones will have to be thawed first.  Cooked can be heated from the frozen state in either the oven (foil wrapped at 350) or microwave.
