Corn Dog Mini Muffins

Ok, who’s ready for the Super Bowl?  I’m not gonna lie… I’m not really a big football fan.  However, I am thrilled that The Ravens will be playing!  I lived in Baltimore for 10 years and it will always be my home in some ways.  The city takes a lot of flack from the media but it truly is a great, quirky town with a lot going for it.  Mr. Savory is a huge Ravens fan and I will be watching the game with him, cheering for purple all the way.  We’re going to a party and I will be bringing these scrumptious corn dog mini muffins from my dear friend, Chung-Ah. She writes the fantastic, mouth-watering blog Damn Delicious. Might I take a moment to tell you all how wonderful this gal is?  We met in person late last year and instantly clicked.  She’s my favorite gossip buddy and she always makes me laugh.  She’s a West Coast girl and I’m an East Coast girl but thanks to the internet it’s like we’re constantly chatting away in the same room. Please go visit her blog and say hello!

Hi everyone! It’s Chung-Ah over at Damn Delicious. I have the honor of guest posting for Jen as she has her hands full with a culinary project of her own. I am thrilled to help her out as Jen has become a dear friend of mine over the last year. We virtually met through our blogs and had plenty of conversations on Twitter but I finally met her in person in late November for Mixed. She is the sweetest person I have ever met, and I am so glad that we’ve become such good friends through our blogs.

Now onto the food.

Corn Dog Mini Muffins

I thought hard about what I should make for you guys. I tried to go along with the theme of her blog; savory, simple foods.  So with much brainstorming, I decided to make these corn dog mini muffins in preparation of Super Bowl Sunday. These babies are incredibly easy to make and are the perfect-type of finger food for your next football party. They go so well on their own or even with a dollop of ketchup. Either way, I guarantee you that your guests will be asking for more and more!

    Oh and btw, I am so not a football fan either. At least you know the teams that are playing. And their colors!

    I’ve lived in Baltimore for over six years now and I still feel like I belong in Northern VA or Florida, but there is so much this city has to offer. It is so charming underneath its dirty skin. I LOVE this recipe and it is perfect for game day on Sunday!

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      I couldn’t agree more! DC isn’t nearly as quirky.

  • http://www.pomanmeals.com tijuana (po’ man meals)

    these are too cute! i LOVE corndogs but putting them inside a corn muffin is genius.

  • http://www.anecdotesandapples.com Monet

    Could these be anymore fun or anymore delicious? I now know what I’m bringing to my superbowl party! Thank you for transporting me with your pictures and recipe! I hope you both are having a lovely week. Stay warm, eat well, and enjoy the weekend!

    Ermehgerd, this is the most fantastic thing ever. I love mini corndogs! And mini corndog muffins are both cute and dangerously addictive.

  • http://www.familyspice.com Laura @ Family Spice

    I just might have to make this to take to the super bowl party we are going to!

  • http://www.breathelighter.wordpress.com Debra

    I’m not even slightly–I can’t even fake it–interested in football or the Big Game…but I will be a good sport and go to my brother’s house and try not to be the total wet blanket. I am intrigued with these little goodies. My family would love these, and I think I’ll whip some up and take them. I’ve seriously never seen anything quite like them on the food table! :-) I was going to bring a salad. LOL! So you see how well I normally fit in with Super Bowl Sunday. I think these will be a hit!

  • http://www.unegaminedanslacuisine.com/ Valerie

    Great post, Chung-Ah! Like Jen, I’m not a big football fan either- but I would love to inhale several of these corn dog muffins! :D

  • http://kellybakes.com kelly @ kellybakes

    what a great idea! I love corn dogs, but I’m weird about frying things and can’t really see sticking batter-dipped hot dogs into piping hot oil ending well for me! This is a much cleaner, safer and more adorable way of enjoying one of my favorite guilty pleasures :)

  • http://www.kitchenkonfidence.com Brandon @ Kitchen Konfidence

    Haha, I love this idea! You get the flavor of a corn dog without the hassle of deep frying. I’ll have to admit that the photos made me blush a little when I first saw them. You may need to add a #NSFW tag!!

    • https://plus.google.com/u/0/116899699259024089659/posts Jennifer Farley

      I am totally cracking up at the nipple comments. Neither Chung-Ah or I noticed.

  • http://daisysworld.net daisy

    OMG! I LOVE corn dogs! I used to eat one of those monster huge ones everyday when I worked at Disneyland. I could eat a bunch of your cute little mini ones. That’s awesome!!

    Holy awesome corn dog!!!! This is my dream “junk” snack!!! Can you send some over? Puh-leeze??

  • Gerry @ Foodness Gracious

    I saw these on Chung-Ah’s site and almost fell over, she’s always busting out awesome dishes…but never sends any to me?

  • Patty

    Very fun bites for the Super Bowl!!!

  • Tanya

    I saw this idea on pinterest! This would make an easy lunch for my toddlers too. Love this idea.

  • http://www.thebeautifulbalance.com Christina @ The Beautiful Balance

    These are adorable! I could easily veganize them :)

  • http://www.piesandplots.net Laura Dembowski

    I love things with cornmeal in them, but I’m having trouble finding one I like. The last one I tried was so gritty what I made was inedible. Do you have a brand you like?

  • http://culinarycory.com Culinary Cory

    What a great idea. Perfect for Superbowl weekend.

  • http://www.sweetsimplestuff.com Brenda

    I’m keeping this recipe for the game next year … such a simple idea, genius!

  • deb

    I just ran into this recipe today…wished I had it for Super Bowl but I have it now. And yes, our glorious RAVENS WON!!!! We drove to NOLA (without tickets) just to be there to support our guys. Greatest roadtrip EVER! These little delights would have been awesome for our tailgating, but they will definitely be on the menu this season LOL!

  • Linda

    These are perfect for kids!! Oh yeah! Saw these and thought they were the perfect cooking project. Boy, did I have some happy little great grandchildren! Thanks. I don’t know where they put them all…………….

  • Karen Kay

    I was so happy to see this recipe. I’m diabetic and believe it or not I will be able to eat 1 or 2 of these and to stop eating them and enjoy them. I love corn dogs!!!

  • RonNasty64

    These were delish and could have been better with good hot dogs. As it was, I cut back the number of hot dogs to have a few cornbread mini muffins and they were terrific too. Thanks for the recipe, I’ve been trying to find a homemade corn dog for years.
