We're well aware of how unconventional corn muffins stuffed with hot dogs are. Don't knock 'em 'til you chew 'em...



 

Ingredients:
7 Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Beef Franks (or another brand of nearly fat-free hot dogs with 40 - 45 calories each)
1 cup canned cream-style corn
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
2 1/2 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
2 1/2 tbsp. granulated sugar 
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine flour, cornmeal, Splenda, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well and set aside. In a separate small bowl, mix together corn, egg substitute, and sour cream. Stir thoroughly. Add contents of the small bowl to the large one, and stir until completely mixed.

Cut 2 hot dogs in half, leaving you with 4 cocktail-sized franks. Cut each of the halves into 6 pieces, leaving you with 24 "coins." Set aside. (You'll use these to top the muffins.)

Chop the remaining hot dogs into very small pieces. Add those to the large bowl, and stir until they are integrated into the batter.

Line 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with baking cups and/or spray with nonstick spray. Evenly distribute batter among the 8 cups. Top each muffin with 3 of the hot dog "coins."

Bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool and then enjoy!

Missing Corndog Report!!!

Have YOU seen this dog!? Our beloved Morningstar Farms Corn Dogs are MIA. According to the Farms' website, there's a "temporary out of stock situation," and the company's unsure of when it'll end. WAHHHH! If you have any additional info regarding the disappearance of these meatless wonder-pups, contact us ASAP. In the meantime, fill the corndog-shaped hole in your soul with our Corndog Millionaire Muffins. And check out Trader Joe's Corn Dogs, if there's a TJ's near you. (Like Morningstar's, those are meatless with pretty good stats.)

 

Cousins of the Corndog

It's a family reunion in the HG kitchen, and YOU are invited...

HG's De-Pudged Pigs in a Blanket - These are a HUGE hit at parties. (They breakdance and even help with post-party cleanup.)

Pig on a Stick in a Bacon-Wrapped Blanket - This dough-covered dog is dressed up with a slice of bacon... and it's goooood!

Hot Diggity Chili Dog - If you make this pup with some corn-containing chili, you'll have a Hot Diggity Chili Corndog (sort of)!

Pump-Up-the-Jam Cocktail Weenies - Okay, so maybe these are super-distant, twice-removed cousins of the corndog. But they're too cute (and too delicious!) to leave out...

 


CHEW ON THIS:
Today, July 16th, is Corndog Day (according to HG). Creamed corn? $1.25. Package of hot dogs? $4.75. Corndog Millionaire Muffins? PRICELESS.
