Corn Dog’s


My kid refuses to eat lunch at school. He absolutely will go without food, just to not eat at school. It’s funny that he does this, because this didn’t start until he was in the 3rd grade, I suppose. It’s been a struggle finding things that he can take for school lunch. I’ve learned to buy things like corn dogs, pizza rolls, chicken nuggets, sandwiches, mac and cheese and so forth. I have been working a lot lately to find things that are going to freeze well and hold up well in his thermos. These are amazing. They freeze well, they heat up well in the oven from a frozen state, and in addition they hold up well until he goes to lunch. I can make a huge batch of these very quickly. What I also like is that  it’s much cheaper than buying the mini corn dogs in the freezer section. I can choose the quality. I make a few batches of these about once a month. Try them ya’ll!

1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup self rising cornmeal

1 cup of milk (or buttermilk)

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/8 cup sugar

2 large eggs

6otdogs cut into inch pieces

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly coat mini muffin tin with nonstick spray, set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour and cornmeal. In another bowl add milk, butter, sugar and eggs. Pour into dry and mix until just moist. Scoop 1 tablespoon of batter into each cup. Put a hot dog in the middle. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden. Serve.

  1. Hello. Can you believe my daughter will do the same thing. Not eat school lunch’s because she doesn’t like what they are having, or running out of her hot sauce that they bought just for her. You have some great ideas, Look forward to reading more of your recipe’s.


    1. Thank you so much! I don’t know what changed for Cooper, but it was like a switch. One day he’s begging, the next he says its nasty and refuses. Kids are so funny. Luckily, we live in a time where doing a mix of lunches is possible.
