Low carb corn dog muffins? Oh yes, they do exist! This recipe contains zero corn and only 4 net carbs per muffin, but they taste like a corn dog!
I’m pretty picky about hot dogs and can only do them a few times a year, but when a craving for a hot dog hits, it must be satisfied.
I usually grill my hot dogs until very charred on the outside and then top them with lots of mustard and dill pickle relish.
Every now and then I’ll slice up a hot dog and add it to some of my low carb chili along with some diced onions and cheddar – it’s like a chili cheese dog and it’s so good!
Lately, though, I’ve been craving a corndog and I knew that my low carb cornbread (with no actual corn) would be perfect for this.
These little corn dog muffins were a big hit with my daughter. We both ate them for lunch -she dipped hers in ketchup (weirdo!!) and I just enjoyed mine plain.
Either way, I think you’ll like this little recipe – perfect for lunch or a fun snack.
How to make corn dog muffins:
Because corn is so high in carbs, we’re skipping it altogether and using coconut flour instead. Not to worry though – the texture and flavor is very similar to a traditional cornbread so I think you’ll be pleased!
To start, you’ll whisk together some melted butter, eggs, and cream until smooth.
Add in a little coconut flour, sugar substitute, salt, and baking soda.
The mixture will thicken up as you stir it – coconut flour absorbs a lot of liquid.
Fold in some sliced hot dogs and scoop the mixture into a greased muffin tin.
Bake these up and then get ready to dig in!
The next time I make these, I think I’m going to serve them with a little of my low carb cheese sauce – I think they’d be so good dunked in melty cheese!
