Was looking for some recipes that would freeze well and would give some options for lunch boxes besides sandwiches. Found this one and it is a hit! And so fun!
Makes 42 to 63 muffins (I like lots to freeze, but you could easily cut the recipe in half...another fun option would be to use mini muffin tins for fun finger food for a party)
4 (8.5 oz) boxes of cornbread mix
4 T brown sugar
3 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 packages of hot dogs cut into pieces (interestingly the cheaper the hot dog the better the muffins!)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease muffin tins
In a large bowl, stir together cornbread mix and brown sugar. Add cheese and mix. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Combine egg/milk mixture with dry ingredients and gently stir until moist. Fold in cut up hot dogs. Spoon mixture into muffin tins (~2/3 full).
Bake 14 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve or let them cool and package them up for the freezer. I usually wrap them in foil in packages of two.
