Eats: Chili Dog Casserole11:04 AM
I honestly should just call this "heart-attack casserole", because obviously. Why would someone like me, who is pretty adamant on eating healthy foods bother to cook such a monster, let alone eat it? Well here is the thing: Kyle and I are pretty broke at the moment. A few weeks ago, we had a bunch of family over for a cookout, and we had loads of hot dogs, burgers, and buns leftover. I froze everything, assuming we could do something with it later (Sara doesn't waste food!).
I found a recipe on Pinterest for chili dog casserole, and half-joked about making it for Kyle. He kept asking about it, so I caved and made it.
8 pack of hot dog buns
8 pack of hot dogs
Half an onion
1 can of chili
1 cup of shredded cheese
Slice up the hot dog buns into 1-2 inch pieces, and place them in a casserole dish. Next slice up the hot dogs into 1/2 inch pieces, and layer them on top. Slice up an onion, and add that next. Then add your chili, and cheese on top of the onion. I then sliced up some green onion and added it last. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, and that is it.
Because we had random leftovers, this casserole was a mix of wheat, and white buns, both veggie, and regular hot dogs, and I used vegetarian chili. So I suppose you could try to make this a tad healthier, but either way, it tasted pretty good. I made a huge salad to go with it to tell myself that this wasn't a horrible dinner, but I think this might make a good dish to take to a summer BBQ or something.
