Corn Dog Casserole

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

    My husband and I love this. I add thawed frozen corn kernels and more celery and onions to boost the nutritional value. I found that 1/2 recipe works well for 4 generous servings.

    I made this. The only problem I had with it was pan size. They should have just said a 13x9 pan. I put it in a 3 qt casserole and had to cook it for over an hour. Top was browner than I wanted but my husband liked it.

    I’ve been making this for years. I have tweaked it to suit our preference. We add extra cheese, more meat, yellow onion instead of green and depending on what I have on hand, I’ve used anything from good quality hot dogs to spam to kielbasa so it’s a very forgiving recipe. I also bake it anywhere from 5-10 minutes less for a more moist dish. It really doesn’t taste like corn dogs but it’s still delicious how I make it.

    I did not like this. Way too much bread for the other ingredients. I would not make again.

    I didn't enjoy, tasted very much like a thanksgiving stuffing with hot dogs. Probably good if you like stuffing.

    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 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. :)
