Do you guys read the Pintester? If you don't, you should. She tests pins from Pinterest and usually messes them up pretty royally, but even if she succeeds her blog is always good for a laugh.
Anyway, she's started something called The Pintester Movement, challenging people to get out there and try pins without regard for whether they succeed or fail. I didn't have a blog for the first Pintester Movement, but I do have one for this one so I was excited to participate! This time around she challenged us to try a pin she's already tested. I chose to do one that she messed up, because I'm somewhat competitive and I was sure I could succeed where she failed (you know, in the name of science, or something).
So without further ado...
Corn Dog Mini Muffins
You will need:
- muffin pan
- non-stick spray
- box of Jiffy, plus eggs and milk as the box calls for
- hot dogs
In true Pintester fashion, I chose to do this pin because I already had the stuff I needed for it in the house. That is to say, I had a box of Jiffy in the cabinet and leftover already-grilled hotdogs from the 4th of July party that I needed to get rid of. I also thought my kid would enjoy them.
All I did was follow the instructions on the Jiffy box (including letting the batter rest for a few minutes before pouring), spray the muffin pan with copious amounts of non-stick spray (Sonja, the Pintester had issues with sticking), cut the hotdogs into thirds, and stuck them in the middle of the batter, like so:
Then I just baked them as the Jiffy package directed, pulled them out and let them cool for a bit, and...
Tada! Not a single one of them stuck. The only "fail" part of this recipe was the fact that E would not eat them. She has this thing about eating two or more foods put together, even if those foods are things she likes, such as cornbread and hotdogs. They were a big hit with the adults in the house, though. (I ate four. Oops.)
