Can we just take a minute and go “Whoa! How is it October already?!?!”

Yep, it’s the first weekend in October and I’m still trying to wrap my head around it. How is it already fall? We’re speeding up to Halloween, Thanksgiving, and before you know it a jolly fat man will be falling down your chimney to give you some presents in exchange for some cookies and milk.

These mini corn dog muffins are just one way to straddle the seasons. You see, they remind me of summer time carnivals and BBQ’s but at the same time they are the perfect food for football season. Well, any really sporting event watching, like NASCAR, women’s figure skating, or even curling. Hey, you never know…

It’s just that these mini corn dog muffins that I made for this week’s edition of Sprint Cup Snacks are just so dang good and pop-able. Something very important to consider for game time nosh, like Fried Pickles or Bang Bang Shrimp. Plus, they are soooo simple to make since they take about 10 minutes total prep time, so from start to finish you’ll be enjoying these bad boys in about 25 minutes.

This weekend’s race at Kansas is edging us closer towards the Sprint Cup championship race in mid November. And you have to admit it’s definitely been an interesting Chase so far. (Well, unless you are a Kasey Kahne fan, like myself :-/) I’m looking forward to totally relaxing on Sunday while watching the race while noshing on these mini corn dog muffins.

  1. What an interesting concept. Although I am not much of a hot dog kinda person, I am keeping this idea for trailer use. When there happens to be some little kidletts (not mine) kicking around, might just be an ideal snack for the on the run crowd. Thanks for sharing.
    Otis wanted me to say hi to Kemper for him!
