Original poster here. I don't know why the editors changed my simple instructions, but you are supposed to chop the hot dogs into pea size pieces. It also helps to run a knife around each one before you remove it from the pan. Read More

Made this recipe and it was alright but tasted dry. I've always made them by dicing up my hotdogs, placing them in the bottom of a sprayed muffin pan, mixing up a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix( I live 35 Mike's from the Chelsea Milling Company that makes it) with 1/4 cup of shredded yellow cheese. They're quite good but if you use mini muffin cups they make cute "dippers" with mustard, ketchup or barbecue sauce. Read More

These made a fast easy lunch when I still had a house full of boys after a sleepover. The boys loved them. I followed the recipe exactly but had to cook for 11 minutes to get them done. Great recipe: ) Thanks for sharing! Read More

This recipe is so easy and delicious! It was very fast and easy. Everyone in our family loved it. They do get a bit crumbly so I might use cupcake papers next time. Several fell apart as I took them out of the pan. Also I made some mini muffins and some regular side muffins. Both were excellent. If you are making these for very young children you could cut the hot dogs into smaller pieces to prevent choking. Read More

I made this using my favorite gluten free cornbread recipe, which is VERY close to this one. I had help from my 11- and 8-yr-old grandsons so kept it simple and had the eldest cut the dogs into about 5 pieces each. I used a good amount of cooking spray in the muffin cups because I wanted to get close to the taste of fried corn dogs. After cooking for about 10 minutes at 450, they were perfect. Such an easy way to get the kids involved in cooking. Thanks! Read More

Very good. Didn't stick at all. Used a little spray in the pan. Used a handful of shredded cheddar cheese in the batter and a little Dijon mustard. Yum Read More

I made a half-batch tonight as a trial for an upcoming event. I followed other reviewers suggestions and used half brown sugar half white sugar and added a dash of vanilla. I will definitely be making these again but will cut the sugar in half and would like to try adding corn and cheese. Mini muffins needed 10 minutes to bake to golden brown. My three-year-old is happily gobbling them down so no complaints there! Read More

I personally enjoyed these my family doesn't like corn muffins but they liked these ones! The hot dogs make all the difference. I also used a regular muffin tin because I didn't have a mini one. Read More
