"We ate this corn bread-topped casserole often when our children were growing up, and it was always well received," shares Marilyn Hoiten of Rockford, Illinois. "It's so easy to throw together after work that I still make it for my husband and me."
In Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed dresses up hot dogs and canned pork and beans with extra seasonings to create this kid-pleasing combo. "This dish is quick and easy to throw together, and my family loves it," she remarks.
Anna Mayer of Fort Branch, Indiana promises this quick-to-fix macaroni and hot dog combination will please kids of all ages." "Our grandchildren love it, and I like it because we can make it together with things I have on hand."
“I have made this casserole several times, and it’s always a hit,” reports Roxanne VanGelder of Rochester, New Hampshire. The kid-pleasing combo has a sweet flavor from the baked beans and the corn bread topping. “The recipe saves on pans to wash if all were cooked separately,” Roxanne adds.
INSTEAD of the usual hot dog and bun meal, I like to make more of a main meal. It's a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes and the toppings can be varied. Best of all, it's kid-friendly and very easy to make to fit everyone's preferences.
