Cornmeal Muffins (or bread) with Sausage

I have to give credit to Jett's after school daycare teacher Cory. Basically, you make Cornbread (or Cornbread Muffins) and add hot dogs or sausage to the batter. Be aware of sodium as you are comparing dogs. I have thought I was doing well choosing non-Nitrate dogs. Apparently, if I am to believe this article...not so much. So keep this in mind if it's a priority to you. Maybe its time to veggie-I-fie your muffins: http://www.seriouseats.com/2008/01/cooking-with-kids-nitratefree-hot-dogs.html

Preheat Oven to 400 °
  • 1 c yellow or blue corn meal

  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/3 veg. oil (or reduce by up to half w/greek yogurt)

Grease 8in. pan or prepare muffin tin w/papers.  Mix dry ingredients. In separate bowl combine wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry until just blended. Fold in franks.
