Dad Recipe(s): Kid-Friendly, Fast Supper!

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

Put the corn bread batter in a mini muffin tin, with a hot dog piece in each.

  • 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”

Surprisingly yummy combo!

Surprisingly yummy combo!

  • 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!
