Corn Dog Bites

Oh the county fair... Carnival rides, Annoying workers asking you to, "Step right up!", and all that Carnival food! Cotton candy...funnel cakes...and corn dogs-my brother's favorite! He regularly asks for us to make these at home, but of course I can't...or perhaps, won't create a deep fried piece of bread and unidentifiable 'meat' to feed him for supper... So what's a good big sister to do?

Create a super amazing healthy makeover of course! :P



So that's is exactly what I did! And I'm here to share it with you! A typical corn dog at the fair has around 400 calories, 25 grams of fat, 36 grams of carbohydrates and NO nutrients, barely any protein and slim if any fiber... not exactly your breakfast of champions!

Have no fear! The Blissful Baker is here! And she has made this meal just as tasty (if not more) and billions and billions times more nutritious!

Ingredients (makes 8-10 muffins, about 4 servings) :
-4 All-Meat hot dogs (can use beef or turkey hot dogs)
-Shredded Cheese (if desired)
-For Cornbread batter:
   -1/3 cup whole wheat flour
   -1/3 cup cornmeal
   -1/3 cup non-fat yogurt
   -1 TBSP. honey
   -1 egg
   -1 tsp. baking soda
   -1/4 tsp. salt
   -chopped celery (if desired)

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350* and line a regular sized muffin tin with 8-10 muffin liners
2. Mix cornbread batter ingredients together until lumpy
3. Cook hot dogs until warmed throughout
4. Chop into bit sized pieces
5. Pour an equal amount of cornbread batter into each liner
6. Add an equal amount of hot dog bites to each batter
7. Top with shredded cheddar cheese if desired
