Corn Dog Casserole Recipe

Reminiscent of traditional corn dogs, this fun main dish really hits the spot on fall days. It's perfect for the football parties my husband and I often host. It tastes especially good right from the oven. -Marcy Suzanne Olipane, Belleville, Illinois

"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!"

"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!"

"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!"

"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."

"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.)"

"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 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.
