Mini Corn Dogs

I love to cook with my nephew and niece. I think it's so important for them to enjoy cooking, and its a great, very messy time. Making these mini corn dogs was no exception. I'm not sure what Luke and Siena liked more, covering the lil smokies with the cornbread mix, or licking the extra mix off their hands. Siena enjoyed herself so much, she thanked me three different times for letting them make them. Seeing how much fun the kids had completely made up for the mini corn dogs looking a little crazy.

Mini Corn Dog

1 pkg. lil smokies
1 T. cornstarch
1 box Jiffy cornbread mix
1 egg
1/2 c. milk

Rinse lil smokies well and pat them dry. Toss them with the cornstarch, lightly. Dust off any extra cornstarch. In a small bowl, mix together cornbread mix, egg and milk. Stick a toothpick in each lil smokie. Dip lil smokies in cornbread mix to coat. Place them on a greased baking sheet. Bake them in a 350 degree oven for 12-14 minutes, or until cornbread is golden brown.
