That’s where this easy cheddar cornbread dogs recipe comes in. It only takes a few minutes to put together, then the oven does the rest of the work for you. It’s great for hectic days when you need to get your kids out the door to after school activities. Make them before they get home and they’ll be ready to go with you! Check it out!

A few tips. First, you can use any cornbread mix, we just prefer Jiffy. You can also use any type of hot dogs. Both my son and I eat turkey or chicken dogs. My husband only eats beef. If you’re making this for your family and everyone eats a different type of hot dog, just color-code with cupcake liners. For example, use blue for beef and red for turkey.

As much as I love these cheddar cornbread dogs, obviously I’m not going to make them every single day, so I still need a few more go-to after school snack ideas. Check out some of my other favorites!

Need a quick and easy after school snack? How about English muffin mini pizzas? They're fast, fun and easy to customize to everyone's tastes.

Coming up with healthy AND delicious homemade after school snacks doesn’t have to be hard. One thing I suggest: sit down with your kids before school starts (or right now, if it’s already started for you) and make a list of “go-to” snack ideas that they love. It makes it a lot easier to plan ahead, grocery shop for ingredients, and make sure you always have the perfect snack ready for them.
