1 box Jiffy Cornbread Mix
1/2 cup flour

1 pkg (6) Hillshire Farms CheddarWurst links
You could use regular or light hotdogs in this recipe and save a few more calories per serving, but may end up having to top more generously to add flavour.
Mix cornbread batter in a large bowl with all ingredients but sausage links. Careful not to overmix - you don't want tough muffins! The batter is fine if it's a little lumpy.
Line 2 muffin pans with mini foil cups (or spray really well to prevent sticking). Divide mix evenly between the 24 cups.
Cut sausages into 24 pieces (4 pieces per link) and insert one piece into each cup standing on its end so you can still see a bit of the "dog" sticking out.
Bake for 10 minutes. Check to see if the muffins need more time before going the extra 5 minutes (my muffins only needed about 12 minutes, but oven times vary). A toothpick inserted should come out clean.
Serve with the standard mustard, ketchup or just plain up! Using the cheese smokies gives these a great flavour all on their own.
Serving Size: Makes 24 mini muffins
Number of Servings: 24
