corn dog muffins

What is your favorite football snack?  Chips and salsa? Guacomole? Chili? Well, these corn dog muffins are officially on my game day menu.  And let's face it, with the refs this year, the best thing about the game this weekend will probably be the food.

These little bites of goodness pack all the deliciousness of a corn dog into one mouthful. They are gluten free and so easy. I just whipped up my favorite GF cornbread recipe from the Gluten Free Mommy (tastes like Jiffy), spooned it into a mini-muffin pan, and stuck little pieces of hot diggity dogs in the batter.  Simple and super yummy.  I made these for some friends a few weeks ago and not a one was left by halftime.
