Corn Dog Casserole

Corn Dog Casserole is the best solution to homemade corn dogs. I really don’t like deep frying foods, but my family really likes corn dogs. I occasionally purchase frozen corn dogs which we cook, but this Corn dog casserole is more cost effective, and it’s tasty, too.

Don’t tell the children, but it sneaks in some vegetables, too. This doesn’t taste the same as a “proper corn dog,” but it’s still good, and most importantly, my family loved it. It was reminiscent of hot dogs and a very mild cornbread stuffing because of the sage.
