Last night found Mama stuck in a trial late into the evening, so Katie-Bug, Violet-Bug and I were flying solo for dinner. I remembered on our way home that I’d pinned a recipe on one of my Pinterest boards a while back for just such an occasion – mini corn dog bites!
When I found the pin and clicked through to the original website, I found a whole list of similar ideas. Here are the instructions (this post hardly qualifies as a ‘recipe!’) for the corn dog bites and a ‘bonus’ snack. Be sure to visit the originating blog (Easy Food) for lots of other cool ideas!
Corn Dog Bites
- 1 pkg Jiffy Cornbread Mix
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk
- two or three hot dogs (we used Ballpark turkey franks)
Prepare the cornbread mix as directed on the box (using the egg and milk). Pour the batter into a mini muffin pan. Cut the wieners into sections and place a section in the middle of each muffin; bake as directed on the box (about fifteen minutes at 400 degrees).
Banana/Peanut Butter “Hot Dogs”
- Hot dog bun
- 1-2 tbs. peanut butter
- 1 medium-sized banana
- 1-2 tsp. jelly or jam (any flavor)
Spread the peanut butter inside the hot dog bun. Put the banana in the bun as you would a wiener; spread the jelly or jam on top as “chili.” It may sound and/or look strange, but it’s ‘dog-gone’ (sorry!) tasty!
