EASIEST Kid-friendly Lunch EVERRR! Cheap, too!

Like corn dogs?  Try Corndog Muffins!! (I got this recipe from a group on Cafemom)

All you need is a pack of your favorite hotdogs and 2-3 boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix.

Prepare mix as directed (add milk and egg) and stir in sliced hotdogs (note: cheese dogs might add some more flavor).  Fill greased muffin tins 1/2 full.  Bake 10-15 min.  Add a veggie to the plate.  Voila.  Lunch!!

I was thinking maybe next time, I'd try adding the green beans INTO the mix.  Then a friend said she always puts a can of corn in her cornbread every time she makes it as a sidedish.

Genius!  Meat + veg + cornmeal = a whole meal in a muffin :)

My boys were VERY excited to eat lunch in the form of a "cuppycake."  And even though Gradster was a little disappointed with the lack of sprinkles on his, I think he's on his fourth muffin.

These will be GREAT when baseball and soccer seasons kick in and we have to eat quickly on the run!!

What would you add to it?

I'd probably add some shredded carrots. My mom used to "hide" baby food meat in waffles for me when I was little (and corn). I'm pretty sure it messed me up, though. ;-)
