Top Dog Corn Muffins

Jerry Errico

Ingredients

  • large egg
  • 2 Tablespoons  sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons  butter, melted
  • 1/2 Cup  Sneaky Chef White Purée*
  • 6 Tablespoons  low-fat milk
  • 1/2 Cup  grated, low-fat Cheddar cheese
  • hot dogs, cut in half lengthwise, and chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 Cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 Cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 Cup  whole-grain flour
  • 2 Teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon  baking soda

By transforming corn dogs into muffins, I could sneak in whole grains, vegetables, and calcium while retaining the traditional great taste of hot dogs and cornbread. This complete meal in a muffin makes a fun dinner on the run or lunchbox sandwich alternative.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper liners. Spray liners lightly with cooking spray oil.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar until well combined, then whisk in the melted butter, White Purée, milk, cheese, and hot dog pieces.

In another mixing bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, the flours, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until flour is just moistened (don’t overmix or the muffins will be dense).

Scoop the batter into muffin tins, filling just to the top. Bake for 22-24 minutes, until tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
