I can’t believe it, gang… December is whooshing away before my eyes like a speeding locomotive. I’m almost afraid to blink or I could miss out on some of the really fun stuff…like holiday parties and Jesus’ birthday!

I mentioned last week that I love attending parties, and I’m always at the ready with my offer to bring a great appetizer, quick snack, or casserole with me. I like to help take some of the work load off of the host if he/she is up for it. Because I’m working three part-time jobs right now, I’m what you might label “crazy busy“, so convenience products that I can heat and eat have become staples around my kitchen. I picked up a box of Country Ribbon mini corn dogs on my last shopping trip to my favorite big box warehouse, Sam’s Club. I’m crazy for corn dogs,  and these minis were PERFECT for the quick and easy corn dog casserole recipe that I’m sharing with you today.

Incidentally, am I the only one who goes a little crazy inside when they see boxes upside down in a display case at a store?

I’m so flipping excited about sharing this recipe with you. Mostly because it’s SO delicious, and easily adapted to suit individual taste preferences. Seriously…do you know how many different toppings can be used on a chili cheese dog? For example, I think yellow mustard is a required topping, but Brian doesn’t care for it, so I squirted a little into the chili to give it a mustard flavor without the visual #InsiderWifeTrick. He loves raw onions and I really only enjoy them if they’re caramelized, so I met him half way and used scallions to top our casserole with. They have a lot less bite and more sweetness to them. He also loves sour cream on his chili dogs…*shudder*. I couldn’t even bring myself to take a photo of that topping on this casserole. THIS is what it looked like before I popped it into the oven.

I think  mini corn dogs are adorable, but I simply HAD to cover them up with a little more cheese…and BACON. #DontJudgeMe
Another way to make this recipe your own is by using your favorite chili recipe, OR if you’re in a hurry to make it, you can use ready-to-eat convenience chili, making this casserole about 25 minutes from prep to table. AWESOME, right?

Yes, that would be me…donned in a highly embarrassing corny Christmas sweater. The fact that I’m wearing a PINK t-shirt under that sweater makes this ensemble of mine incredibly flattering, dontcha think? *gigglesnort* I’m grateful that I’m holding my favorite Build-a-Bear, “Buddy”.  HE’S adorable <3

THE FOOD

I really hope you’ll try this recipe. It’s just too delicious to miss out on. Oh, and I happen to think it made the perfect GAME DAY food when Brian and I were watching the Green Bay Packers play last week. No, I really don’t want to talk about the final score. Can we please just say “Get well soon, Aaron” and talk about how delicious this corn dog casserole is instead?

    Mini corn dogs? Be still my heart. If only they still had Sam's Club up here in Canadia. :(
    Love this casserole. It's seriously like all my favourite things, all piled together in one convenient forkful.
    Also? Love that kitschy Christmas sweater. :)

    • Chef_Becca says

      Izz, the mere fact that you swoon for corn dogs AND used the word “kitschy” in a sentence on this blog make me love you 10,000 percent more than I already did ;)

    • Chef_Becca says

      I'm sorry that you won't be able to try the Country Ribbon brand, but there are other mini corn dogs out on the market that you could use as a substitute :)Thanks for your comment!

    hehe… thank GOODNESS I\’m not alone, Dionne! I get OBSESSED with it sometimes. I once started straightening out packets of frozen vegetables and someone approached me, thinking I worked at the store!

  3. says

    No you aren’t the only one. Tay will stand at a display until I drag her away, facing and straightening merchandise in the stores. I am pretty sure the other shoppers are judging one of us as she screams- IM NOT DONE! When I drag her away.

    These corn dogs are definitely cute as can be! I love corn dogs. Gotta try this.,

    And I think the sweater and your little friend are both adorable! Thank you for sharing this with us!

    I’ve never heard of Country Ribbon products before, but if you say they’re good, I’m going to find me some … Maybe even tonight before the Bears do some butt-whooping. The casserole looks fantastic. I guess I’ll need a whole bunch of mini dogs.

    • says

      I’m tellin’ ya, Christiane, as picky as I am about convenience foods, I had my doubts going in, but MAN they’re good. I just wouldn’t recommend microwaving them. They need time in the oven to get crispy :)

      You’ll need half of box from Sam’s Club to make a casserole to serve 6 people. That’s 36 minis.

      Ummm…. since your beloved Bears are probably going to lose the game tonight, you might want to make extra to wallow your sorrows in ;) (Sorry, couldn’t help myself! #GoPackGo)
