Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Mini Corn Dog Muffins

I made these Mini Skinny Corn Dog Muffins to celebrate the arrival of fall.

I love everything about fall. The cooler weather. The foods. The holidays. And especially the fall fairs and festivals and fun food associated with them.

WW Friendly Mini Corn Dog Muffins

What could be more fun than mini corn dog muffins? I got the idea for these mini corn dog muffins one day while reading, Sara Noel's Frugal Living Column in the Arizona Republic.

She was responding to a woman who had written in to justify buying a corn-dog maker from Amazon as a cost saving measure. (Which goes to show that we humans can rationalize just about anything :-))

Sara had responded suggesting that you can make cornbread muffins in a mini muffin tin and add a cut-up piece of hot dog in each compartment to make mini corn dogs.

And if the kids are really missing them, add a stick after baking. Who knew? A creative, healthy, thrifty alternative to corn dogs.

Mini Corn Dog Muffins

Baked Mini Corn Dog Muffins! What a great way for those of us who want to indulge our taste buds and fit into our skinny jeans to have it all.

I immediately set my mind on making a batch of these baked skinny mini corn dog muffins as soon as I gathered the ingredients: 97% fat free Hebrew National hotdogs and a small package (6 muffin size/6.5 ounces) of corn muffin mix.

These were easy, delicious and fun to make. Consider them the next time you are trying to rationalize a corn dog 😉
