Make Something Monday: Corn Dog Casserole

Make Something Monday
I'm not a huge fan of corn dogs, but when my parents made this casserole for the first time, I really liked it! This was only my second time making it and I actually halved the recipe with basically no problems.

Corn Dog Casserole
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 15 hot dogs (cut into quarters lengthwise, then into thirds)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 packages cornbread mix (I use Jiffy)
  • 8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
  • chopped green pepper and onion are optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Saute corn (which I forgot as you'll see in the pic), hot dogs and butter. (Also the green pepper and onion, if you choose.) In large bowl, combine eggs, milk, sage and pepper. Add hot dog mixture and stir in corn bread mix. Add 6 oz of cheese, mix well and spread into a 3 quart baking dish (preferably a shallow dish, so it cooks through better.) Top with remaining cheese and bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Serves 8-10.

I just put this picture in, because I love how the little pieces of hot dog curl up! :-)

It turned out almost as well as I remember it. For some reason it had a bitter aftertaste, so I almost wondered if I added too much sage or maybe the Jiffy corn muffin mix tends to be bitter? I really don't know, but it was really good otherwise and Blake loved it! (Rich was gone when I made it and Morgan wasn't eating much, since she was sick.) It may not be the healthiest dish, but it's a nice treat every once in a while for my hot dog loving kids :-)
