A fun cupcake with a surprise in the middle. Growing up my kids loved corn dogs.
These are a tender corn muffin with kielbasa in the middle, that remind me of a corn dog and  just as fun to eat!

So much easier to make and a quick brunch, lunch or snack in no time!

A great after school treat!

Sometimes I got home and worked late at the office.

These were made ahead of time and perfect for an after school appetizer before dinner to keep everyone happy on those long hour days at work.

They reheat well in foil and in a toaster over or pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds.

Use whatever Kind Of Sausage

We love kielbasa instead of using hotdogs.

If your family love corndogs, stick to using hotdogs.

I think kielbasa has a much richer flavor but not all kids prefer the thick hotdogs.

Either way these are delicious to eat with any smoked sausage you prefer.

They even tasted great using breakfast cooked leftover sausages.

Love Adding Mustard

I love adding mustard to these muffins and the kids loved a mild salsa.

Corn Muffin Mix

You can use any corn muffin mix.

My mom always used regular corn meal and made the recipe from the box.

I use any quick boxed mix that uses just milk and eggs.

If you want to make it homemade and have the time, I applaud you, I am sure they will be even better.
