” This casserole tastes just like a corn dog, only better,
thanks to the addition of cheese, celery, green onions, and spices.
This is a very tasty, kid-friendly dish. Since we became vegetarians,
we use veggie hot dogs instead of meat in the recipe.
The recipe makes 12 servings, but you can cut the recipe down to
the size you need. ”
