Corn Dog Muffins

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.

This time of the year is so much fun - great parties, great friends, great games and GREAT food!  The Big Game is always a must watch for our family, always has been.  Even if our favorite team isn't one of the teams playing we make sure to have a fun Big Game gathering with our friends and family.  "Homegating" for the win! I love coming up with family friendly Big Game Appetizers during this time of the year because I like surprising our guests with something yummy.  

This year I decided to twist a favorite of ours into a great finger food option.  Corn Dog Muffins.  Sounds pretty yummy right?  Well, you are correct.  These super easy appetizers that every age group will enjoy.

5.  Prepare Ball Park hot dogs by cutting them in half. 

My preference is the Ball Park hot dogs because they are 100% beef, - have no nitrates/nitrites or artificial preservatives, include premier blend of seasonings, and juicy flavor you can see!   As always, Tyson Foods is always a crowd pleaser at our homegating parties.

6.  Scoop 2 TBSP of cornbread mixture into each muffin cup.

7.  Place one hot dog piece into the cornbread mixture. 

8.  Bake Corn Dog Muffins for 13-15 minutes or until cornbread is nice and golden. 

9.  Enjoy warm with a side of ketchup.  


I have a few cornbread recipes but this one is my favorite.  It always turns out yummy, even without the hot dogs and it is really easy to make.  The Corn Dog Muffins have turned out to be a hit with every other game day event we have attended.  I continue to make them because they take literally no time.

As you plan your Big Game party or gathering make sure you add Ball Park hot dogs, found in the refrigerated section, to your shopping list so you can create this yummy appetizer.  While you are at your local Kroger you can also pick up some Tyson® Any’tizers®in the freezer section and Wright® Brand Bacon in the refrigerated section - oh think of the possibilities!  These items will allow you to get super creative or allow you to take a break on game day and let Tyson do the work for you.  Love that!

  1. These sound delicious and would go down a treat at a Super Bowl party. Id have to make a few minus the hot dogs for my vegetarian friends unless I could find some veggie dogs. I love how Im finding so many new recipes at the moment but must laugh at how food and football go hand in hand when it comes to Super Bowl.

  2. Okay, I love cornbread, and cornbread muffins, what a great idea. I bet my husband and girls would totally love these. Perfect for someone like me that doesn't do much cooking. What a fun idea.

  3. I love this idea! I love Corndogs and this just seems like a much easier, mess-free way to eat them. (I can't be the only one that drops something every time I eat a corn dog on a stick...)

  5. Ohmygoodness! Thank you so much for reminding me of these! I used to make Corn Dog Muffins all of the time when my kids were younger. We couldn't get enough of them. It has been years since I last made them. Time to change that!

  7. This is such a great idea for game day! I can see these disappearing quick, especially with the kids hovering around. Can't wait to try it.
