These ‘corn dog’ muffins are obviously not deep fried (health first!) and you can always substitute the all beef sausages for turkey if you want to cut the fat down even further.
One recipe will yield approximately 16-24 of these little babies. Put some ketchup or mustard on the side and let the games begin!
I used European Weiners from Costco because those were the only sausages I had on hand. For the Cornbread mix, you can either make it from scratch (recipe here) or be a lazy bum like me and get the pre-made one.
Mix 2 1/2 cups of the Cornbread Muffin Mix, 1 1/4 cups of water, 1/4 cup of oil, and 1egg in a large mixing bowl.
Once it is thoroughly mixed together, it will look a little something like this. Grainy is the texture we are going for.
Fill up each mini muffin tin to about two thirds (2/3) full and stick a 2 inch sausage in the center. Clearly, mine were over filled so my first batch rose way too high.
Make sure you grease the muffin tins like no tomorrow and bake at 400°F for 15 minutes.
