Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 veggie hot dogs, cut into 1/2-inch coins (you can also use turkey or beef)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425F degrees.

2. Mix the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the honey, buttermilk, eggs and oil.

4. Pour the dry cornmeal mixture into the wet ingredients and thoroughly combine with a whisk.*

5. Grease muffin cups with cooking spray, softened butter or oil on a paper towel and then pour one tablespoon batter into greased mini muffin cups. I use two 24-cup mini muffins pans!

6. Lay hot dog slices cut-side down in the center of each batter-filled muffin cup.

7. Top with an additional tablespoon of batter.

8. Bake until starting to turn golden, about 14 minutes.

9. Add popsicle sticks after baked and serve. 

* Boxed cornbread mix also works great in this recipe. Follow the directions of the boxed mix, prepare enough batter to yield at least 40 mini muffins and skip to step 5 to continue making the bites.
