Nothing says summer quite like a corn dog, and these Mini Corn Dog Bites are about to become your new seasonal obsession!

A family friendly snack or appetizer, this recipe gives a fair food staple a bite-size, better-for-you boost, and it’s easy to make! Simply slice Heinen’s premium all beef hot dogs into small pieces and bake them in a muffin tin with a simple homemade breading. Choosing the bake instead deep fry will save you on calories and clean-up, making these mini corn dogs that much more enjoyable.

A corndog is nothing without ketchup, so I’ve included a recipe for a clean homemade option below; however, if you’re short on time, reach for Heinen’s organic ketchup or Heinen’s mustard. If I can’t make something from scratch, I always trust Heinen’s brand products to deliver the quality and taste I’m seeking.

Mini Corn Dog Bites


For the Mini Corn Dog Bites

  • 4 Tbsp. Heinen’s unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup Heinen's sugar
  • 1 Heinen’s cage free egg
  • 3/4 cup Heinen's milk
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1 cup flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 2 Heinen’s all-beef hot dogs, cut in ½ in pieces

For the Ketchup

  • 1 Tbsp. Heinen’s olive oil
  • 3 large locally grown tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 2 tsp. Heinen’s light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce


  1. Make the ketchup. Combine the olive oil, tomatoes, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, salt, and and Worcestershire sauce in a medium-size saucepan. Bring to a light boil, then boil for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and use an immersion blender or food processor to smooth. Let cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Combine the melted butter, sugar and egg in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. Add the milk and mix well.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, cornmeal, flour and a pinch of salt. Fold into the wet ingredients.
  5. Spray a 24-cup mini muffin tin with nonstick spray. Spoon the batter evenly into each muffin cup. Add one hot dog piece into the center of each cup.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve with ketchup.

  1. Thank you for this easy and delicious recipe! I made these for a party last night and they were a big success!!! I used the Cleveland Ketchup with Bacon and Bourbon flavoring I found at Heinen’s. Wow, they were a big winner and people ate them all up. Thank you for this new recipe!
