Easy Lunch Ideas For Kids: At Home
When you’re stuck inside your house like we are currently, things can get a little rough. However, it also means you can have your kids help you cook and take the time to make a meal memorable. This recipe is a kid-classic that’s easy to put together and fun for kids to help! Grab a muffin tin or mini-muffin tin here if you don’t have one.
- 1 c. flour
- 1 c. yellow cornmeal
- ⅓ c. sugar
- 2 ½ tsp. baking powder
- 1 c. milk
- 2 large eggs
- ¼ c. vegetable oil
- 3 hot dogs cut into ½ inch pieces
- Start by heating your oven to 425°F and greasing either a regular muffin tin or a mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Then, in a medium-sized bowl mix the flour, cornmeal, sugar, and baking soda together until combined. In a second bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, and oil together until fully mixed. Next, mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
- In a saucepan, go ahead and saute your hot dog bites for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. You can also pop them in the microwave for a minute or two if you'd like.
- Last, pour the batter into the muffin tins so that each tin is ¾ full. Then place a hot dog bite into the middle of the tin so that it's mostly submerged in the batter. Then pop the tin into the oven for 13-15 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown. Remove and allow to cool slightly before serving with your choice of dipping sauce!
