Easy Mini Corn Dog Dinner Recipe
No time to cook dinner? Fret not! These wickedly delicious (and seriously cute) mini corn dog bites are a perfect quick meal to throw together that the whole family will happily devour. First time I whipped up a batch, I was actually surprised how much I liked them considering I don't love hot dogs.
But these are a little sweet, a little salty, and just the right size to pop in your mouth. The kids loved them, they were super simple to make, and they were a fun venture from our normal lunch or dinner.
We have a fall party most years, and this is such a great dish to add to the menu this time of year. They'll go perfectly with a hot bowl of chili and some homemade root beer.
How Long Do You Bake Mini Corn Dogs?
Bake these for 8 to 10 minutes in a 400 degree F. oven, until the edges are golden-brown and the corn muffin is cooked through. (You can test it by poking it with a toothpick; if it comes out clean, they're done.)
How Do You Cook Corn Dogs in the Oven?
Corn dogs aren't just hot dogs covered with fried batter on a stick! These mini corn dog bites can be cooked in the oven, using a mini muffin tin, cornbread mix, and cut up hot dogs. They're a little healthier since they're not fried, and they're the perfect size for all ages to enjoy!
How Long Do Mini Baked Corn Dogs Last?
You can store leftovers in a sealed baggie or airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 to 5 days, or in the freezer for 3 months. Reheat them on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree F. oven until they're heated through, about 6 minutes.

- 1 box Jiffy Corn Bread Mix (8.5 ounce box)
- 1 egg
- ⅓ cup milk
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon chili powder
- 4 hot dogs, cut into 6 pieces each
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease mini muffin tins, and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, add the Jiffy mix, egg, milk, and spices. Whisk until completely combined.
- Spoon 2 teaspoons of the cornbread batter into each muffin cup, and then gently press a piece of hot dog into the middle of each muffin.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden-brown and the corn muffin is cooked through.
- Let the mini corn dogs rest in the pan a few minutes before removing.
- The Jiffy corn bread mix was surprisingly sweet. I like a sweet and salty combo, so I enjoyed it. If you like your cornbread or corn dogs less sweet, then you might want to try a different brand of corn bread mix.
- Hebrew National are out favorite brand of hot dogs. They have so much flavor!
