Decided, at the very last minute to have my sisters (and brother-in-laws) over for Halloween – it was my niece’s first Halloween and we had to do something to celebrate – even though she was just 2 weeks old on the 31st October and won’t remember a thing!
I couldn’t not make corn bread of some description, it is expected of me these days when Halloween rolls around! So I tweaked my go-to recipe and created Corn Dog Muffins!

No step-by-step, in progress photos I’m afraid…just the recipe! Enjoy!
