Corn Dog Muffins

I’ll admit it – my daughter is addicted to corn dogs. Any time we go out to eat, regardless of the type of restaurant, my five year old begs for a corn dog. It has gotten a little weird at times, like when she’s asking for corn dogs at our favorite Chinese restaurant. 🙂

She’s starting full day kindergarten this year, and I’ve been trying to think of some fun things to send in her lunch box. These corn dog muffins are perfect for lunch boxes or after school snacks! They’re made in a mini muffin tin, which makes them the perfect size for little ones, and they’re super portable and easy to pack. Both of my girls love them, especially with some ketchup for dipping on the side.

I’ve made these before using my favorite homemade corn bread recipe, but this time I used a boxed mix for simplicity’s sake. It made things quick and easy, and they still turned out great. We added a little shredded cheese to the mix just for fun, and it made the muffins even tastier! These are definitely going to be a favorite at our house for school lunches all year long!

Corn Dog Muffins


  • 4 hot dogs (I used all natural turkey dogs)
  • 1 box Jiffy muffin mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Grease a mini muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the muffin mix, egg, milk, and cheese. Let rest 3-4 minutes.
  3. Slice each hot dog into 6 equal pieces. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of muffin batter into each well of the muffin tin, then place a hot dog piece in the center of each well.
  4. Bake 11-13 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with ketchup for dipping.
