The mix was done in Cuisinart and wouldn't do that again since they turned out tough. I've used this machine for 30 years and made several kinds of dough, but it wasn't good for these. The idea for these came from a memory of tater dogs on a stick (like corndogs) that were sold at Natoturium Amusement Park in Spokane, WA where I grew up. Just used a basic muffin recipe and then added mashed potatoes--these were small red ones. Put a dollop of mix in bottom of each cup and then added piece of hotdog, and then covered with more dough.
Might try these with link sausages another time. Anyway...go look at all the fun ideas people came up with here: http://thedaringkitchen.com/recipe you can click on a picture to go to the blog for it.
Blog-checking lines: The Daring Bakers’ February 2012 host was – Lis! Lisa stepped in last minute and challenged us to create a quick bread we could call our own. She supplied us with a base recipe and shared some recipes she loves from various websites and encouraged us to build upon them and create new flavor profiles.
