I’m trying to have fun and recreate foods that kids love that I don’t feel so guilty feeding them.
I got an old sandwich maker from my mom and decided to make some fun corn muffin dogs for my boys.
I found a recipe I could easily work with thanks to acozykitchen.com. I modified it to fit my taste and voila! Lunch is served. I served ours with some veggie chips and fruit. I always serve the fruit as the “dessert” part if any meal because my kids love fruit and will eat it all before their “meal”.
Here’s the recipe:
1/3c whole wheat flour
1/3c ap flour
1/2c corn meal
1tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c soy milk ( any milk is fine)
1 tbsp agave ( honey or sugar or none is fine)
4 turkey dogs or whatever type you like
I mixed everything in 1 bowl. Cut each dog into fours. I poured the batter into each well of the sandwich maker. I added 3 chunks of dog into each one. Poured a little more batter directly over each dog. I shut the lid and they cooked up in less than 5 minutes! From start to finish I had lunch done in less than 30 minutes!!
I am loving this sandwich maker and so are the boys. If you don’t have a sandwich maker turn this into regular corn dogs or muffins. Have fun and let the kids add the dogs to the batter if making in a sandwich maker or muffins.
