When I saw this recipe popping up on Pinterest, I knew that I had to give it a try. While I love a good vegan corn dog, I always hate battling my stovetop when I try to deep-fry battered veggie dogs. Plus, it’s not exactly the healthiest of meals. 😉
This recipe for veggie dog and cornbread muffins is perfect for mimicking the flavors of a traditional corn dog—with the extra bonus of avoiding the calories added by deep-frying. By replacing the pork with protein-packed veggie dogs, we’re also ridding the meal of cholesterol, saturated fat, and of course, cruelty to animals.
These muffins are perfect for little ones and adults alike. Bake them ahead and pack them in your child’s lunch, or take them to your next tailgate party. I promise that they’ll be a hit!
