Chili Cheese Dog Casserole...

If you love chili cheese hot dogs, you'll love this recipe.  It requires only 4 ingredients and can be put together quickly.  It is also great for pot luck dinners, an ideal dish when you have friends over, young or old, or when you want something easy when you and friends are watching a the big game.  (But,... if you don't like chili cheese hot dogs, then this recipe may not be for you).

  • 8 hot dog buns, torn into pieces
  • 8 hot dogs cut into slices
  • 15 oz. can of chili (with or without beans)
  • 8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Spray a 9 X 13 in. baking dish with Pam.
  3. Put the hot dog bun pieces on the bottom of the baking dish.
  4. Put the sliced hot dog pieces on top, covering the bun pieces.
  5. Pour the chili over the top of the hot dogs and cover with the shredded cheese.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes, removing foil for the last 10 minutes.

These are all of the ingredients you'll need to make the chili cheese dog casserole.

Have a grown-up spray a 9 by 13 inch baking dish with Pam.  Then break up each hot dog bun and put in the bottom of the dish.

Cut each hot dog into pieces about 1/2 to 1 inch long.

Put all of the hot dogs on top of the hot dog buns.

Spread all of the hot dog pieces around so that they fully cover all of the hot dog buns.

Spread a can of chili evenly on top of all of the hot dogs.

Pour the entire package of shredded cheese on top of the chili.

Spread the cheese around evenly so that it covers all of the hot dogs  and chili.

When everything is spread around evenly, cover the casserole with aluminum foil.

Tuck the aluminum foil around all of the edges.  Then, have a grown-up put the covered casserole in a 350° preheated oven for 30 minutes, removing the aluminum foil cover for the last 10 minutes.

Ta da!  30 minutes later you have a completed chili cheese dog casserole!

You can eat it just as the delicious casserole or you can even add ketchup or mustard just like you might do with a real chili cheese dog.  Let me know what you think.
