An easier version of the kid friendly corn dog – made into a casserole topped with cheese.

Corn Dog Casserole on Taste and Tell

Photo Updated November 2012

If you look over at the side bar on my blog, you will first see that it says “I am not a food snob.” And this recipe right here proves it!!

First of all, I have to say that I was getting really good at scaling recipes down to 2 servings. I got tired of always having so many leftovers in the fridge. And now, it’s dark at 5pm. I usually start making dinner at 5 pm. So now I am either stuck with making extra food so I can photograph the leftovers, or trying to make do with the horrible lighting. Oh, the trials of a food blogger!!

For some reason, as soon as I saw this recipe, I couldn’t get it out of my head. I’m not ashamed to admit that I love a good hot dog, and a good corn dog as well. But this sounded so easy, I just had to try it. Corn dog flavor without having to get out the fryer? Of course I’d try it!

And I’m not ashamed to admit that I really liked this. Maybe it’s the kid in me. (And I know kids would lovethis meal!!) You do get that taste of corn dogs all wrapped up in an easy casserole. Maybe it’s not what you want to share at your next dinner party, but it sure is a kid and family friendly meal!

    Both me and my husband love corn dogs! We don't often get the chance to eat them, but we never miss an opportunity! I don't know what it is about a corn dog that's so tasty! This sounds like a great recipe!

  6. Grace says:

    i happen to think that the idea for corndogs was one of the best ever, and i love 'em. this is a dish i'd really enjoy!

  7. Abby says:

    It's also "man food." But I'd love this, too. I eat corn dogs once a year – at the fair! So this would be fun.

  8. Karen says:

    You don't know me, but I love your blog! Your recipes are easy to follow and delicious! I have a favor to ask of you. Do you know how to make almond paste? I have a recipe I've been wanting to try, but don't know how to make it. Could you e-mail me if you have any info for me? Thanks! wayeva4@aol.com

  9. Karen says:

    Hilarious! I know that everyone in my family would like this. Yummy comforting goodness.

  10. Veronica says:

    This recipe excites me! I tried making a corndog casserole, but it was just cornbread & hot dogs so it wasn't all that exciting. I can't wait to try this!! Yippee! I'm a corn dog fanatic. Here's the silly pic I took of my casserole (after cutting a piece): http://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/107/l_92d2e60e796742269de6742c5b617032.jpg

    I love casseroles. They're my comfort food. This sounds great!

  12. Barbara says:

    Great fun for kids! And guys. Not so much for me as I'm not a corn dog fan, but it won't stop me from making it for my family!

  13. Vicky says:

    I love your blog but live in Australia and was wondering if Cornbread mix is similar to cornmeal or polenta as that is all I would be able to get. If anyone reading this blog can answer you can find me over at my blog, just click on my name. Thanks

  14. Amy says:

    Something about casseroles just takes me to my childhood. This one looks good and I will likely make it! I recently started collecting some of my mom's recipes that we loved growing up. I am going to have to start blogging some of her old favorites.

  15. glamah16 says:

    Now thats an interesting dish, I would give it whirl.

  16. Marie says:

    Ha, cute! Food snobs are no fun. 😛

  17. Mrs. L says:

    Corn Dog Casserole? Are you serious? I'm so there!

  18. Brenda says:

    I’d LOVE to try this recipe, but I have a question. The ingredients list 18 oz. cornbread mix. Does this mean 1- 8oz. Jiffy cornbread mix or 18 oz. of self-rising cornbread mix in the bag or what?

    • Deborah says:

      @Brenda, I found an 18 oz bag of cornbread mix. The original recipe (from a family cookbook) called for the 18 oz. bag, but even if you used 2-8 oz boxes, it should probably be close enough.

  19. deb threefeathers says:

    love corndogs! i’m a real person who loves food many bloggers turn their noses up at…..i have a real family and a real-life budget, so i appreciate that you’re not a food snob, means you’re a real-life person too lol

    i make corndog muffins…..kids love that…..i invite you to try making this in a muffin tin

  20. Thus looks great for a Friday movie night with the grandkids. We’re having a party at Tumbleweed Contessa – Saturday Dishes. This week we are featuring casseroles. This would be great. Hope you can drop by to share. Co hosts are Savannah at Hammock Tracks and Paula at Call Me PMc.


    Have a great weekend,


  21. Shannon says:

    I made this tonight and we really liked it. I am not a corndog eater but this was good. I will definitely make it again.

  22. Cathy says:

    Does this casserole freeze well?

  23. Joan says:

    There could be a big difference in cornmeal mixes. Jiffy is very sweet; others
    such as Martha White, White Lily are not sweet. I do not care for sweet cornbread, except in corn casserole or the wonderful Okra Cornbread that I make. Your recipe sounds very

  24. Rebecca says:

    I make something similar to this but I put it into muffin cups so it is already serving sized.
    I also add more veggies to beef up the nutrition. Add a spoonful of pureed pumpkin. Add a spoonful of any pureed veggie to increase the nutrition.

  25. Allison says:

    This sounds great! However, I’m not a fan of sage. What would be a good substitution?
