Fantastic! I've made it twice in two days and there are none left! Odd tip: try using the cheapest hotdogs you can find. I used both good and cheap brands and the texture of the cruddy dogs actually works better with the cornbread and made it taste more like a corn dog. I did cut down the brown sugar a bit (to 1 1/2 Tbsp) but that was personal preference. This was so easy, super cheap and delicious! I'm sure I will be using this recipe constantly. It satisfies the kid in me :)

I made this the other night for a rushed dinner. They went over well with my boys (4 & 2) but my husband and I did not like them at all. I was skeptical about adding the sugar but decided to follow the recipe and it was a big mistake. These were way too sweet. I don't think the sugar should be added at all. I cut the hot dogs into small pieces since my children are small and they are choking hazards, but there really didn't seem to be enough hot dog. The bread overpowered the muffins. I might make them again for my children since they did like it but only if they request it. Also I think I will use the directions on the box and just add the hot dogs. Thank you anyway for the idea, it just wasn't for us.

Never seem to have any leftover. I’ve been using this particular recipe since 2005. Really good. I recommend cutting the hot dogs into very small pieces and alternating while pouring in tins… batter, hot dogs, batter.

These were really delicious -- and easy. I halved the recipe because 18 muffins would have been way too many. Still made 10 large muffins, which was great. I could have squeezed out another two, I think because I filled the tins more than the 2/3 full that it called for. Batter was thicker than I thought it would be when dropping in the hot dogs, but they turned out great. I used 3 slices per muffin instead of half a dog, which I'm not sure would have fit in my muffin tins. The slices were popping out of the top a bit, but it didn't really matter. I served with honey mustard, which made them really delicious. They are pretty hardy, too. I was serving them as a Superbowl appetizer, but they were super filling could definitely be a meal. I can see how kids would love these. I have a couple left today, so I'll see how the keep. I had served them straight from the oven yesterday, so they were perfect. Will definitely make these again.

These were a fun dinner. I suggest cutting the hot dogs into smaller sized pieces for better distribution in the muffins. I couldn't bring myself to add the brown sugar since the brand of corn muffin mix I use is already pretty sweet. My husband liked them with mustard, I preferred them plain. Some pepper jack cheese in the batter might liven them up a bit.

Decided to make a half a batch (Why?? We just wanted more!), but I accidentally added the full cup of cheese. Glad I did. They were great! I'll make the same mistake next time! Also, I cut up the hot dogs in half slices, and stirred them right into the batter. A half lb. worked well for the half recipe, even though I'll probably never make a HALF again! File this one under "Fun Food"!

I was unsure of trying this one but my teenagers really liked them. I increased the cheese to 1-1/2 cups and in half the batter, I added chopped black olives and chopped jalapenos. Those were the favorites. Next time I'll leave out all or most of the brown sugar; I'm not sure it was necessary.

These are a great crowd and kid pleaser. I made them in my mini muffin pan and they were just the perfect mix of hot dog and breading. My pickiest eater said they were "fabulous"! This is a great recipe to keep in mind for a potluck or kids lunch.
