I wanted to riff on hot dogs, so I made corn dog muffins. I added jalapenos to this “kid friendly” recipe and won my husband over, too. —Becky Tarala, Bunnell, Florida

"These muffins are an easy-to-make twist on the corn dog. The recipe states the jalapeno is optional but I say that is what makes them so good! It's just a little hint of heat but adds great flavor. I used my favorite homemade corn bread recipe when I mixed up a batch. I think any type of hot dog you like would work. I used the kind I always buy not turkey ones."

"My kids LOVE corn dogs so I made the kid-friendly version (no jalape?os) and it was a hit...even with my notoriously picky son!

I used Jiffy brand corn bread/muffin mix which has a very subtle sweetness to it. The finished product may have a different flavor with a different brand mix.
This a was an incredibly easy recipe using ingredients I just about always have on-hand. It will be perfect for a busy school night and is guaranteed to become part of our regular meal plan!"

"I absolutely loved the concept...kid friendly, fast, easy recipe. But my kiddos weren't fans, and husband didn't rave. I am sure others will get a kick out of it though, and it's a fun twist on a fair favorite."

"These were amazing! I made these specifically for my son thinking he would enjoy them. He did but my husband enjoy them more than anybody else. We had no leftovers! I will be tripling the batch next time so I can freeze some."
