This is a good way to get a good hot meal on the table on weeknights. I serve it with raw veggies and dip. It is also an ideal way to use up leftover chili.
When I looked at this recipe, the first thing I thought was “this needs a cornbread topping”. It seemed like it would give more flavor and would resemble a chili corn dog. So, I used a small cornbread mix for the topping (I used Jiffy). The results were great. I recommend doing it that way. It was also easier and quicker. I made it in a 9×9″ square baking dish and used Hormel chili. Very good.
I made tater tots to go with this and figured next time I will top with tater tots instead of Bisquick. I cooked it at a higher temp because I was baking with tots and it still worked fine.
In response to the note about the fat content…I changed this recipe to a lower fat recipe by using skim cheese and by using turkey hot dogs and turkey chili…soy products could also be used…it turned out great and cut the fat down a ton!
I have made this recipe for my children a few times and I REALIZE that it doesn’t have the best nutritional values. Kids are kids, and if they want a chili dog, then who are we (as adults) to say “OMG no you can’t, it has way too much fat”. I mean really, a healthy active child will have no problem burning this off. I agree w/ DREGINEK we aren’t being “lazy” giving our kids a treat now & then.
The kids enjoyed this & loved the fact that it was way easier to eat than a chili cheese dog. I cut the dough recipe in 1/2, and it wasn’t too “doughy”. I do see how it would have been undercooked if I had not done that. Don’t forget the chopped onions on top!
I have made this recipe on a few occasions when I have my own leftover, homemade chili. I don’t use nearly as much biscuit dough (1/2 the amt) and I have to bake it for the full 25 min. In fact, MC_MA_OF_3 could have practically written my review on its taste, ease, dough content & onion addition (Go Girl:)). It’s a good recipe (although Not gourmet). And as the reviewer before me reminded us all, a meal such as this can easily be countered with good exercise and a healthy lifestyle in general. So unless you’re following a strict dietary regime, this recipe still makes for a relatively good & quick lunch or dinner. However, I have found that kids seem to enjoy it a little more than the adults (I’m assuming due to their less mature taste buds). Happy Cooking!
