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.

Description

Quick, simple, and delicious mini baked corn dogs are the perfect easy lunch or dinner for your busy weeks. Your kids will love these cute little corn dog bites!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 box Jiffy Corn Bread Mix (8.5 ounce box)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 hot dogs, cut into 6 pieces each

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease mini muffin tins, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the Jiffy mix, egg, milk, and spices. Whisk until completely combined.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges are golden-brown and the corn muffin is cooked through.
  5. Let the mini corn dogs rest in the pan a few minutes before removing.

Notes

  • 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!

  1. I made these for Bunco night and they were a huge hit! I cut small circles of parchment paper and placed them in the bottom of my mini muffin tin and sprayed with Baker’s Joy. This prevented them from sticking to the pan.






  2. How did you come about the nutritional value numbers? One 97% fat free Hebrew National hot dog (serving size = 6 bites = 1 hot dog) has 21% sodium. Your chart shows only 10% sodium. Also, one hot dog has 6 grams of protein and your chart says 2.8 grams. Is the serving size off?

    1. I pay for a program that is supposed to calculate it, but I’m sure that it doesn’t do it perfectly so for sure if you have any questions, plug it into something and see what you get too.

  3. I might can help with the sticking problem. When my husband makes cornbread he always sprinkles a little cornmeal in the bottom after greasing the pan. I did this with this recipe and mine did not stick. They were a little crumbly but I think I should have cooked them longer. All in all I would make these again with a few adjustments. Thanks so much for the recipe!

  4. Very easy to make . The cornbread doesn’t stay moist inside like the ones you would buy at a fair but they are okay..
