"My husband and I loved it"

Reviewed Jul. 7, 2015

"I hate to make a recipe creater feel bad, but this was awful. I kind of knew ahead of time I wouldn't like it, but I thought my husband and 3 boys might. Not so much. They all just picked at it. It tastes exactly as it sounds; hot dogs, a can of chili, and a package of corn bread mix. I had high hopes as it was simple, and easy to make, but alas...not a hit for my family."

"This was pretty good. I like the idea of adding mustard to it, and I would probably omit the celery and green pepper next time."

"This is a good base for a hot dog casserole. I haven't made it yet, but after reading the most recent few reviews, I'd like to offer a few suggestions that might make it more moist and tasty. Because the casserole needs to bake a little longer than the cornbread by itself, adding a little sour cream or cream corn to the batter will help. You can also add grated cheddar, green chilies, dash of hot sauce, and/or seasonings for flavor. I'll either use chili withOUT beans or add a small can of hot dog chili sauce to bean chili for a more gravy-like consistency. No onions, celery, or peppers for my guys, just some spices. And since I always put mustard on my chili dogs and don't like sweetness in my savory dishes, I will replace the brown sugar with yellow or Dijon mustard. And I will bake at 325 for 30-32 minutes."

"Simply delish! My family likes cornbread served on the side! Cook up the rest in a skillet on the stove! Works great! Not so dry this way."
