Reviews for Corn Dog Casserole
"I don't know what I did wrong, but this was not good. Didn't taste anything like a corn dog. I used Nathan's all beef & what a waste of expensive hot dogs!"
"my girls loved this recipe. yummy"
"My family loved this recipe. I did use a regular onion, instead of the green onion and 1 cup celery instead of two. Those were my only two changes.I did use good quality hot dogs, but since it didn't specify a brand I don't consider that a change, but I'm sure it helped. :)"
"Too dry and flavorless. I made it as directed except for adding a little more milk. It didn't help."
"I've been making this recipe for years! I use less sage and I don't think it matters how you slice the hot dogs. Read my review at my blog - http://frugalfunlife.com/2014/10/05/corn-dog-casserole/My instructions are a little different, but they work for me. Great recipe!"
"This was ok. Much better if you put mustard on it! Not our favorite."
"I have been making this recipe for years. It is good made with low fat or turkey hotdogs, skim milk and the 2% cheese. I've gotten lazy over the years and no longer saute the hot dogs to save time!"
"A quick, tasty meal that tastes like a summer street festival on a plate."
"I made this one time and was disgusted with the end results. Sorry to the owner that submitted this no offense meant to you. I had to throw the entire thing out because NOBODY liked this or wanted to eat it. Out of all the years that I've been trying and making new receipes I can't stand to waste food/ingredients but this was one of the very few from T.O.H that was disgusting and a total waste of my money. I'm being kind by rating this 1 star!"
"We thought this was great!"
"I can't believe that I have never reviewed this recipe until now as we have been making it since it was published. In fact, my children were in 4-H in Kansas and did a cooking demonstration earning them purples ribbons at both the county and state levels. They, and now ,I do not use the corn bread mixes. We prefer stirring up our own home made corn bread. So simple to do and the family likes it better. Wonderful recipe!"
"This was delicious and very filling. I did use my own home made corn bread mix but the cook time was off. It took me 50 minutes to bake but I'm thinking it could be b.c I did use the packs of cornbread mix."
"I loved it! The kids hated it, and they love corn dogs...darn it."
"This wasn't too bad. I liked it because I like corn dogs, but others weren't that thrilled with it."
"We really liked it -- I added in a can of chopped green chilies as suggested by one of the other reviewers. Next time I'll add in corn too... Yummm"
"This recipe is awesome! I love corn dogs and this tastes just like the corn dogs I enjoy at the county fair every summer. I was able to cut some calories some with light hot dogs and it still tasted delicious. Stop thinking about it and just go make this dish!"
"I've made this recipe several times. I omit the celery and use polish sausage in place of hot dogs. I also add 1-2 of fire roasted diced tomatoes to add flavor and moisture. My husband requests this meal all the time!"
"It sounds good, but I think I would halve the corn meal mix and add a dash of mustard."
"Must be plenty of beer to wash it down. Must be the heat from the oven that kills everyone's taste buds."
"this is my all time favorite.... Love it!"
"This would be okay as a side or something but I made it thinking it would be good for supper and was very disappointed. Also, I baked it for even less time than the recipe calls for and it was on the dry side."
"i was pleasantly surprised by how good this was and not really difficult to make."
"taste just like a corn dog my kids loved it"
"Thought I would love this, as I LOVE corn dogs, but alas, no. I was so concerned about the overcooked and dry results from some reviewers that I think I undercooked this casserole. When I microwaved each piece on individual plates it did taste better, but I still didn't get that "corn dog" experience. Perhaps I'll try a different recipe."
"This is a great Sunday Night Supper Dish. I 1/2'd it since I wasn't feeding a crowd and it worked out very well. It was easy to put together and I had all ingredients on hand."
"It's a keeper. My husband and brother-in-law liked it. Taste just like a corn dog on a stick. I read some reviews and decided to add more hot dogs into the mix so there wasn't a lot of extra muffin mix. Or I guess you can use one box of muffin mix. ( I wouldn't.)"
"I was very disappointed in this recipe. There was way too much cornmeal mix -- I would suggest using only one package of corn muffin mix. Everyone left most of it on their plate as the proportion of hot dogs to muffin mix is so unbalanced."
"This was so strangely good! I made it exactly to the recipe, except I cut The hot dogs into 1/3 inch coin cuts. I bake in a 13x9 pan and it came out very moist. Served ketchup and mustard on the side and my whole family thought it was really good. This is definitly a keeper!"

"This is the dish I take to all potlucks. People ask for it now and I rarely have leftovers."
"My fiance and I both liked this recipe. A little bit of ketchup and mustard make this just like the corndogs we love to get at the county fair. Will definitely make this again."
"My family loves this recipe. It's not very complicated and it's yummy. Make sure that you use a shallow pan to bake it in because the last two times I've forgotten and baked it in a deeper dish and it's taken extra cooking time. Last time I didn't add green onions and only about one tsp. of sage and it still came out delicious."
"I've been making this dish since I first saw it published over 10 years ago in TOH. When I first suggested this dish I received some pretty funny looks but, after tasting it, it's now one of the most requested dinners from my immediate and extended family."
"I was worried that with all the celery and onions the kids would take issue with it but they all loved it. And one of my favorite bonus is that it yielded left overs!!!!!"
"We all loved this recipe! Very easy and supery yummy. I didn't use the full amount of green onions - only about half of it. It just seemed like way too much. I made it in a 13x9 pan and it wasn't dry at all."
"I cut the hot dogs into 1/4 inch thick rounds as well as the strips that are described in the recipe and the different types of shapes in the casserole made it more visually interesting. Some of the comments said that the casserole was dry. I cooked it in a 9 by 13 pan for 8 minutes less time and it came out very moist. Big hit at the potluck!"
"This was so good and easy my boyfriend loved it! I will make alot when i want something good and fast.Thanks"
"We had a party and had a lot of leftover grilled hot dogs. I used the left over hot dogs for this recipe and it was GREAT! I will definately make this again. My family loved it!"
"Your changes in the recipe sound interesting.Did you use the listed amount of green onions?Would this fit in a 9" x 13" pan? Thank you!"
"I've always liked corn dogs but didn't want to deal with the mess and don't have a deep fryer so I was glad to discover this recipe. I didn't have celery, so added a can of creamed corn and reduced the milk by 1/4 c. I also took a reviewer suggestion and added green chilies, but reduced the sage to 1 tsp because my husbands not a fan. We all enjoyed it and it's a quick,easy meal that's kid friendly. Will make again."
"cut down on the celery and added 1 can of chopped green chilies vey good"
"just alright- nothing spectacular."
"The whole family loves this recipe and we make it often! I bake it in 2 casserole dishes and freeze one for another night. I also have used turkey dogs (or a mixture of turkey & regular) with great results."
"My whole family loved this recipe! I will be making this often. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!"
"tasted like corndogs. the kids ate it. might have left it in the oven a tad bit too long but it is something we will have again. did have to use a decent amount of condiments."
"Two people in my family kind of liked it, the other two really didn't care for it so much. Personally, I thought it was kind of dry-like and had to put a lot of mustard on it. Then it was better. It really does taste like corn dogs though."
"Very easy and delicious!! Will make this again."
"My family likes this, even me (and I don't like corn bread/muffins)."
"SO yummy!!! And I don't even care for corn dogs. I used Krusteaz all-natural corn bread mix and low-fat turkey dogs to make it a little healthier. I also used fewer green onions than the recipe called for, but it tasted great. Everyone in my house loved it and I'll definitely be making it many more times!"
"This is one of my husband's absolute favorites. It's great as leftovers too!"
"I made this mainly for the kids, but the adults loved it, too! Halved the recipe and baked it in an 8" square pan."
"Sounds soooo good, my boys like hot dogs so I'm trying this dish this week."
"This is seriously yummy. My kids could eat either this or meatloaf for dinner every night."
"My kids ask for 3rds of this recipe! But they prefer it without the veggies....of course."
