Card Making and Cooking; When Two Perfect Worlds Collide!

This week is VBS for my three-year old! While volunteering in the classrooms,  I volunteered to bring a dish for one of the nights for the volunteers.  Last night was my night and I made a recipe that I more or less made up with a little help from our local Trader Joe’s. 

Since the dish would appear non- descript, I decided to make a fun “calling card” for the dish.  Apparently the dish was a huge hit, and was gobbled up in no time flat.  So if you are looking for a fun and yummy dish to take to your next potluck, here is an idea!

 

Chili Corndog Bake

Ingredients:

  • 1 Box of cornbread mix (follow the directions of the box to make)
  • 2 packages of hotdogs (16 dogs) * I used turkey dogs
  • 1 cups of shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups of mozzarella cheese.  You can substitute  jack cheese.  I like mine super cheesy that melts smooth and creamy so I use mozzarella.
  • 3 cans of chili with beans of your choice. * I used turkey chili with beans.
  • Diced red onions (optional)
  • Diced jalapeno for garnish (optional)

 

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease a large casserole dish or aluminum throw-away bake and serve dish with oil spray.
  • Empty contents of chili cans into the dish.
  • Cut hot dogs in threes length wise and dice into small pieces and place in dish.
  • Add 2 cups of shredded mozzarella or  jack cheese to dish.
  • Combine all ingredients and spread evenly.
  • Sprinkle top with 1 1/2 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese.
  • Follow the directions on cornbread box and make cornbread in a seperate bowl.
  • Spread cornbread evenly onto chili mixture.
  • Place in oven and bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean.

 

Card: 

  • Base: I cut a piece of white cardstock down to 12 inches wide and 8 inches long and scored it to fold in half (new measurements 6×4)
  • Paper: I cut down a piece of design paper from Die Cuts with a View, Summer Stacker to 6×2 2 1/2.
  • Cricut cartridges: Simply Charmed (Shadow setting on hotdog and hot dog bun and mustard set at 3 inches)
  • Cricut cartridges: Schoolbooks Plantain.  Typed in the words “chili corndog bake” at 1 inch setting.
  • Stamps: Peachy Keen Big Eyes Boy
  • Stamp Ink: Stampin’ Up Classic Black
  • Ribbon: Used some scrap I had.
  • I attached the hot dog with dimensional.
