these turned out great! I used my tried and true Jiffy cornbread mix, prepared as directed, and I used the 'natural' nitrate-free angus beef hot dogs. We made them in a mini muffin pan, and cut the hot dogs into slices, and then each slice in half. After 2 batches I can say that they are best with just a LITTLE cornbread batter, and about 3 or 4 pieces of hot dog. Fun activity for the kiddo!
