The Recipe Girl's Mini Corn Dog Muffins

The Recipe Girl came up with these fun, easy treats, great for lunch boxes, and we had them for dinner with chili, super good.  They are only 73 calories each the way I made them, we got 36 muffins out of the recipe, and they come together really quickly.  Aaron and I gave them a 9, and the boys gave them an 8 because they didn't like the coarse ground corn meal I used.  The boys dipped these in ketchup, and they really liked them despite the corn meal :).  I changed the recipe a little
from the one in the cookbook, as well as the one I linked to.  Here's what I did:

1 c coarsely ground corn meal
5/8 c flour
3/4 T baking powder
1 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
2 T brown sugar, packed
1 c buttermilk
1 egg
1/4 c cream
1/4 c milk
2 T unsalted butter, melted
1 c cheese, grated, I used Monterey Jack and Colby
4 hot dogs, diced

Preheat oven to 400, or a little higher, grease 36 mini muffin cups.  Mix together the dry ingredients, and set aside.  Mix together the buttermilk, cream, egg, milk, and butter, then add the dry ingredients and cheese in, then fill each muffin cup.  Add the diced hot dog to each filled muffin cup, then bake for 14 minutes.  Serve with ketchup, chili, whatever.

This is how I did it, but try it the way The Recipe Girl has it posted on her blog if mine doesn't work for you!
