Chili Corn Dog Casserole #Blogtober

 Hearty Chili is topped with Hot Dog studded Corn Bread, for an out of this world casserole the kids will LOVE!



Boy it's getting cold fast!  Today is suppose to warm up but with Fall, you just never know. When it's cold outside, it makes me crave hearty comforting foods. The other night I mentioned to my SO, that I was craving some chili and that I thought I would make it again, to see if maybe the kids would eat it now. My daughter had mentioned that she was craving corn dogs, which gave me an idea about combining the two. I mean, what goes better with chili, than corn bread?


So, I decided to mix some chopped hot dogs, into my cornbread batter, like with corn dog muffins. For the chili, a wanted it nice and thick, so it wouldn't make the corn dog crust soggy. The smell of this cooking was amazing! I loved the contrast of the sweet buttery cornbread, with the smoky salty hot dogs and spicy chili. The kids really loved this, which surprised me because chili has never been something they liked to eat, and I must say, just like regular chili, it was better the next day. It reheats wonderfully and topped with sour cream, cheese and green chiles, it's an amazing meal, perfect for a cold fall or winter night.




Chili Corn Dog Casserole



1 lb lean ground beef

2 cloves garlic

1 small onion chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

1 1/2 tsp chipotle pepper powder

1 Tbs chili powder

1 tsp cumin

salt and pepper to taste

2 C tomato juice (or 1- 14oz can diced tomatoes)

1- 14oz can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed


Corn Dog Crust

1 C yellow cornmeal

1/2 C flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 Tbs baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2- 3/4 C buttermilk

1 large egg, lightly whisked

5 Tbs butter, melted, cooled slightly

4 hot dogs, chopped


In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium high heat. Once no longer pink, add in the onion, garlic and red pepper. Season with chipotle pepper powder, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft and translucent. Add in tomato juice and beans and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until reduced and thick. Pour chili into a 9x9 inch casserole dish and set aside.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


In a bowl combine the corn meal, flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add in the egg, buttermilk and melted butter and stir until well combined. Stir in the chopped hot dogs. Spread mixture evenly over chili in the casserole dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes; until corn bread is set in the centre. Let rest 10 minutes, before serving.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

Easy Balsamic Glazed Salmon

 This is a healthy, easy and impressive way to prepare salmon. The glaze is simple, yet flavourful, and this will quickly become your favourite salmon recipe. Salmon is a reddish fish, that is tender yet firm and it is a favourite amongst many, due to it's buttery flavour. It is low in saturated fat and high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin B12 and Potassium. These are only some of the reasons salmon has been deemed a super food. When I worked at the natural food market, I cooked quite a bit of salmon over those 3 years. It was a staple on our hot buffet and one of our most popular items. Our patrons preferred it prepared simply with dill, lemon, salt and pepper. While this is one of my favourite ways to prepare salmon, sometimes you need a little variety. The balsamic vinegar becomes wonderfully sweet as it bakes in the oven. The Dijon adds a slight tartness, to balance out the sweetness. With only a few healthy ingredients, this recipe is deliciously simple and wo
