Corn Dog Muffins

I know this is not craft related but here it is anyways.  I saw the idea of mini corn dogs using mini muffins and a box corn muffin mix. I wanted to make these but I didn't have a mini muffin tin and wanted to make my own batter. I used my own corn dog batter recipe, cut the hot dogs into small pieces and used a regular muffin tin.  These are a super easy way to have a healthy corn dog! :)
Here is the recipe I used. 
1 1/2 C. FLOUR
1 T. BAKING POWDER
3 T. SUGAR
1 TSP. SALT
1/2 C. CORNMEAL
MILK
8 OZ. HOTDOGS, CUT INTO SMALL PIECES

Mix the first 5 ingredients. Add enough milk to make a thick batter. I am sorry I don't measure the milk I just make it thick, not runny. Mix the cut up hotdogs into batter. Spoon into muffin tins 1/2 - 3/4 full. I do spray mine with a nonstick cooking spray. I get about 12 - 14. I doubled my batch this time so I could put some in the freezer for quick snacks/meals for the kids.

I baked mine at 400* for about 15 minutes.  I used a dark silicone muffin pan so you may need to adjust your temp according to your pan and oven. 

This batter recipe can be used as a corn dog or mini corn dog batter recipe to use in your fryer. That was the way I used this to begin with. We always made mini corn dogs. 

NOTE FOR DAY CARE MOMS
I served these to my daycare kids and they loved them. I used turkey dogs. Each muffin is just over 1/2 ounce meat so I served cheese as well. I am sure it is a full serving of bread, maybe more. I have not sent it in yet but I made sure I knew how much protein they were getting.

Slider Birthday Card

Here is a slider birthday card I made for my niece. Everyone liked making the 7 roll around! The cut file is from the online Silhouette store. The center stamping didn't show up very well in the picture though. The patterned paper is from the My Minds Eye Just Dreamy stack.

A couple of Cards...

Here are a couple of cards I made for a swap. The birthday wishes is a Silhouette cut from their online store. The paper is some very old Basic Grey. I am unsure where the bird I cut is from, probably one of the Cricut cartridges.  The patterned card stock came form the American Crafts Play stack.

Altered notebooks

Here are a couple more altered notebooks I made as a thank you to my SIL for helping with Riley's grad party. The first one is a full size Composition book and the second one is a mini one. I used a K & Co. paper stack. I also decorated a bag to put them in.  I do not remember the Cricut font I used for the W......
