Instant Pot Corn Dog Bites

  • Of course you can use any brand of pressure cooker you have. We aren’t bias. 😉
  • We love all of our fancy multi cookers.

I started with a basic corn muffin recipe using baking powder and a few other ingredients. If you have another favorite cornbread recipe by all means use that instead.

Are corn dogs bad for you?

Well the biggest factor is how you cook them. These are homemade and basically steamed which doesn’t add any calories or fat.

Same goes for air fryer corn dogs. Deep frying is the worst health wise.

How do you cook mini corn dogs?

We made these homemade using an egg mold inside an Instant Pot. You could use an air fryer too. Precooked frozen can be microwaved or heated in the oven.

How do you make corn dogs from scratch?

This is pretty darn close. Of course the hot dogs are sliced smaller, if you wanted them whole you’d need to deep fry them in hot oil. Using corn meal, flour, egg and milk you can make a quick batter.

This is what it will look like when your homemade corn dog batter is mixed together.

Once I combined everything into my mixing bowl I was ready to fill my fancy silicone device used for baking in your pressure cooker.

How do you make corn dog nuggets?

It’s one of my favorite pressure cooker accessories! We have made:

  1. These pressure cooker egg bites are great using leftover ham or bacon in the morning.
  2. Delicious Instant Pot donuts covered in sprinkles are fabulous.
  3. We’ve even made pancake bites in a pressure cooker  which the kids go crazy over.
  4. Brownie bites are fun too for dessert.

I love showing my girls how they can make their own after school snack and seeing their love for cooking grow. Another favorite they make regularly is Kraft Mac and Cheese in the Instant Pot!

  • This is what they look like once you “pop” them out! 

Why do we love “baking” outside of our oven?

  1. There’s no need to heat up the oven, ideal for summertime
  2. It saves money on electricity since it takes half the time to make these
  3. Overall it is much faster

Alternatively you could use a box of Jiffy corn muffin mix and only need milk and egg. After this you can try our Instant Pot hot dogs that cook super quickly.

A printable recipe card is at the bottom of this post, here is a quick step by step:

Time needed: 14 minutes.

Instant Pot Corn Dog Bites

  1. Prepare

    Mix dry ingredients for cornbread together, then add milk, oil and egg and combine well. Spray the inside of your egg mold with non stick spray (well). Fill each pocket 1/2 way full of cornbread mix.

    Cut each hot dog into 4 equal pieces and push 1 piece in the center of each hole filled with batter. Cover egg mold with foil (I usually spray the under side with non stick spray too). 

  2. Cook

    Pour 1.5 c water into your pressure cooker. Put egg mold on a trivet with handles and lower into your pot.

    Close the lid and steam valve and set to pressure high for 9 minutes. Then allow to naturally pressure release steam for 5 minutes. Let out rest of steam after that.

  3. Cool

    Remove foil immediately and allow them to cool in mold for 3-4 minutes so they stay in tact when you pop them out.

    Then flip over and gently push on the bottom pockets so each corn dog mini muffins pops out.
