This dinner was a hit with my family of men. You can adjust the amount of hot dogs you like, but for me and mine, the more the merrier!!!

My guys were so hungry after smelling this baking in the oven that when it finally came out there was no way I was going to keep them from digging in so mom could take pictures! Go figure.

I  served this casserole with a nice big green salad and some store bought potato salad to round out the meal.  This dish was a winner and one that I'll keep in my back pocket for those evenings when I want something quick and tasty without any fuss.

Until we eat again,

  1. This would make a great lunch for may daughter's daycare kids. I think they'd gobble it up. Have you ever substituted the hot dogs for any other meat?

  2. I've only made this recipe once Paula so have yet to experiment with the meat. I don't see why you couldn't substitute anything you like in this however. Ground beef, chicken, turkey, sausage, even breakfast sausage...Go for it!!!

  3. I have not had a corn dog since I was a child but they were one of my favorites. I love that you turned this into a casserole.
