I ran across this great idea for a football game-watching snack from the Plain Chicken blog, one of my absolute favorite places to go on the web. These mini-corn dog muffins are very easy to make and they will disappear very quickly. Because they’re not only fun, they taste great!
You can use whatever dipping sauces (or just ketchup) that you have on hand. I threw together a quick-and-easy maple honey mustard sauce that came out fantastic. Keep the mini theme going with some mini baked ham and Swiss sandwiches and mini cinnamon rolls! You’ll also love my mini corn dogs.
Change things up by using something other than hot dogs. I recommend Andouille sausage for a nice spicy Cajun spin!
