Dip These Mini Corn Dog Muffins in Sriracha Sauce

2012-12-23-corn-dog-muffins-586x322

This simple recipe puts a spin on the classic corn dog while using a bit of imagination and ingenuity in the process. The traditionally corny batter is given a makeover with the addition of green chilies for a hint of spice but not overwhelmingly so — that task is left to America’s new favorite condiment, Sriracha. Yes, these bite sized morsels are paired with spicy sriracha sauce for dipping, just in case you felt the need to eat a fireball. Did I mention everything is placed inside a mini muffin tin and baked in the oven?! Too cutes.

So for the love of county fairs, crack out the cobwebbed muffin tins you once believed to be useless and give this one a shot! Peep the recipe here.

Swap Your Morning Cup o’ Joe for Potato Bacon Breakfast Cups

potatocups

Nick, the man over at Macheesmo, was inspired to try out this savory Potato Bacon Breakfast Cup recipe after witnessing the onslaught of muffin-shaped decadence currently taking over Pinterest.

The recipe combines all the touches of a classic breakfast, including potatoes, bacon and eggs. However, we must warn you about the recipe: “The good news is that it worked. The bad news is that it is work.”

Still, shredded potatoes encompassing a layer of bacon with eggy goodness in the middle? So worth it.

____________

Breakfast Cups

Yield: 6 Cups

Prep Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and grated
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked crispy
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Nonstick spray or extra oil
  • Salt and pepper

Helpful Equipment: Muffin tin

Directions

1) Peel and grate potatoes and submerge them in cold water for a minute to wash off extra starch. Drain potatoes and dry them well on a few paper towels.

2) Add olive oil to a large skillet over medium-high heat and add potatoes and a pinch of salt. Cook potatoes, stirring occasionally, until they are browned. Try to break up potatoes as they cook so they stay in separate strands. They should take 12-15 minutes to brown nicely.

3) Meanwhile cook bacon in the oven at 350 degrees until very crispy. For more on how to cook perfect bacon, check out this post.

4) Grease a 6-cup muffin tin well and divide potatoes between tins. Leave a well in the center of each tin and make sure potatoes go up the sides to form potato cups.

5) Crumble bacon and add about a strip of bacon into each tin.

6) Scramble eggs and divide eggs between tins. You shouldn’t need a full egg for each tin.

7) Season cups with a pinch of salt and pepper and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until eggs are cooked through, about 18-20 minutes.

8) When eggs are cooked, run a knife around the outside of each cup and remove each one. Pray that they don’t stick, but they might stick a bit!
