These are zero carb, keto carnivore corn bread muffins with mini hot dogs (aka, corn dog muffins)! They are low carb, gluten free, and a perfect appetizer or addition to any carnivore/keto meal. There's actually no corn or corn flour in these corn bread muffins (corn free corn bread?), only healthy fats and protein.
The mini hot dogs we use are from Teton Water's Ranch. Teton's is awesome. They're actually verified by the Savory Institute, indicating regenerative and responsible grazing practices. All of their products are 100% Grass-Fed and Grass-Finished Beef, Certified Humane and contain zero fillers.
These mini hot dog corn bread muffins are very easy to make. They came in clutch during my keto bikini competition prep, as my carbs were low and I was not full carnivore at the time. View full recipe below, hope you enjoy!
As a note, to make this recipe full carnivore, omit any seasonings that you are sensitive to and do not add the diced jalapeños. You can also try finding a cream cheese that is 'jalapeño' flavored, but we recommend using a raw source of cream cheese, if possible, otherwise an Organic cream cheese.
Without the OOOFlavors corn bread drops, there will be little to no 'corn bread' flavor. That does not mean these will not taste good, they just simply will not taste like mini corn dog muffins, just mini dog muffins.
