Corn dogs are a carnival staple. With summer almost ending, you have to get them where you can — and fast. We’ve found a recipe that will let you sustain your corn dog love affair during the cooler months. Corn dogs in the form of muffins — it’s the one recipe that’s mandatory for your life. The best part? You can sneak in whole grains and vegetables without anyone noticing. They’ll be too focused on the corn dog part of the equation to even notice their healthy kick.
For the Top Dog Corn Muffins recipe:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F 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.
