True confession: this sounds gross!
True confession: we ate it.
Worked all day.
Had 45 minutes before the girl cherub had to be at dance and the Mr. and the boy cherub had to leave for the Rangers/Yankees game.
Cooking dinner is much cheaper than going out.
Not "this" -- but that statement before it.
You're like me. You look in your cabinets at "stuff" and say, "There's nothing to eat."
But this isn't an editorial about our abundance.
It's a blog about food.
I look in the freezer. There are hot dogs.
Not any ol' hot dog. The boy cherub is particular.
They're Hebrew National hot dogs. The fat free ones -- or whatever they call them.
I had a box of jiffy cornbread mix.
Because everyone should keep a box of that stuff. It's handy.
I had onion.
We made dinner!
Corn dog Casserole
1 jiffy cornbread mix
1 package of hot dogs, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 onion, chopped
3/4 cups milk
1 cup cheddar cheese, or to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Chop onion and saute in pan in a smidge of oil.
When the onions are soft, add the hot dogs and continue cooking until the onions are a caramel color.
In a bowl mix the cornbread mix, egg, and the milk. Stir until well combined. Add the cheddar cheese, onion/hot dog mix and stir well.
Pour into a 8X8 pan (or 9X9) that's been sprayed with Pam. Bake for about 30 minutes or until done and golden brown.
Serve with mustard . . .after all, it's kinda like a corn dog!
I served chips and fresh mango for a complete meal! The only problem with this -- it was all kind of the same color! Next time, I'll go for strawberries; that'll break the orange/yellow on the plate!
