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

"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. :)"

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!"
