What food is more uniquely American than a corn dog? Well, you could probably name a few, but corn dogs are not something you normally find in most parts of the world. One of the original meals-on-a-stick, corn dogs are something I associate with childhood. My kids had never tried them before, but the thought of putting a big pot of sizzling oil on the stove to fry them the batter in while my little ones are running around the kitchen is enough to make me not dare try a homemade version (not to mention I don't love frying anything).
This baked version of Corn Dog Muffin Bites is a great way to let your kids enjoy this nostalgic treat without all the mess and potential hazards. Crunchy cornbread wrapped around little slices of your favorite hot dogs make this recipe a fun change of pace for school lunch or even a quick dinner!
