White Trash Wednesday! Corn Dog Casserole

Sometimes White Trash Wednesday is just too easy. Take this week’s recipe for instance. Just recently I signed up for the allrecipes.com newsletter. It makes my life simple because recipes just flood into my inbox. Yesterday though, it was as if I’d won the white trash lottery.  Because this is what was waiting for me:

Corn Dog Casserole
Ingredients:
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 1/2 cups sliced green onions
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds hot dogs (beef and pork
frankfurters)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons ground sage
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 (8.5 ounce) packages dry corn bread mix
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

Directions:
1. In a medium skillet, saute celery and green onions in butter for 5 minutes. Place saute mixture in a large bowl; set aside.
2. Slice hot dogs lengthwise into quarters, then cut into thirds. In same skillet, saute hot dogs for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add to celery/onion mixture and mix all together. Set aside 1 cup of mixture.
3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
4. In a large bowl combine the eggs, milk, sage and pepper. Add all but reserved 1 cup hot dog mixture. Stir in corn bread mix and 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese. Mix all together and spread mixture into a shallow 3 quart baking dish. Top with reserved 1 cup hot dog mixture and remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
5. Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

Is it just me, or does the celery add a little class to the dish?

It’s times like these when I wish I had a litter of kids to feed this meal of awesomeness to.  Because you know they’d totally love you for making it.

  1. I guess I’m white trash because I totally want to make this recipe lol The celery does seem a little bit random though

    I was thrown off by “saute.” I didn’t think a true white trash recipe would involve sauteing!
    Frying? Yes. Microwaving? Definitely.

  3. You gotta use the oven? Man, this is high-class eatins.

  4. lol I agree! I’m as brown as can be, but I’m fixin’ to make this at some point lol
