I have to study for the CSET exams coming up in T-minus 4 days. Needless to say, all though I want to be a domestic goddess, this week is probably not the week. My solution--a box of Trader Joe's Corn bread mix, and a pack of hotdogs (or veggie dogs, whatever floats your boat). This dinner was SO easy! I made a little modification to the mix preparation, but just to make it healthier.
- 1 box Trader Joe's Corn bread mix (or any other, just prepare as directed)
- 1 egg
- 3/4 milk (I used soy milk)
- 1/4 cup apple sauce (to substitute for half of the oil called for. You can substitute half the amount of oil called for)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 8 standard hotdogs or veggie dogs
Preheat oven to 350 for light pans, or 325 for dark pans. Mix the egg, milk, applesauce, and oil in a small bowl. Mix in corn bread mix and mix until just moistened.
Drop by 1-1/2 tsp fulls into 2 mini muffin pans. Cut the hotdogs into four pieces each, and place one piece in each muffin well, pushing it into the batter.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown on the edges and a set.
