I’m always looking for family friendly recipes, my daughter isn’t even a picky eater, but I like to make meals a little more fun. Sometimes I think I appreciate kid food just as much as she does and chicken tenders end up on the meal plan often. So I made some fun corndog muffins with a box of Trader Joe’s cornbread mix.
It was so easy, all I did was add a little garlic and onion powder (everything needs garlic and onion powder, right?) added some cheese, and added chopped up hot dogs. The batter might have looked extremely weird, and it was difficult to divide the hot dogs evenly among the muffins, but I think the result was absolutely perfect.
When making these I highly recommend using cupcake liners, some of the muffins were a little crumbly and I can’t imagine the mess if you were trying to get them out of a muffin tin.
We dipped them in mustard or ketchup, and had so much fun eating them. Honestly, it tastes so much better than corndogs. These are perfect for playdates, appetizer ideas for hosting sporting events, or just a fun weeknight dinner honestly. Pair them with french fries and you have an incredibly fun family friendly dinner.
