I made this for a party and my larger skillet was being taken up by something else. I cooked the hot dog pieces in a smaller skillet and poured them into a large casserole dish when they were done, over the baked beans. I then poured the cornbread mix over the hot dogs and baked beans and baked until the cornbread was done (toothpick clean). This took a little longer to bake more like 30 minutes but it came out great and everyone loved it.
Tip: If you do it this way you might have some cornbread mix leftover.
This was very tasty and I enjoyed the corn bread being layered over the beans. It was just two of us so I used one package of Ball Park bun length hot dogs and I believe a 28 ounce can of Bush Beans. I dont think I would add the chives to the cornbread next time. A nice family meal! Thank you Lainey for posting this recipe, will be making it again. Made and reviewed for the Australia/NewZealand Forums recipe swap #30.
This is a real kid pleaser. It tastes a lot like a corn dog. My 12yo son made it so you can believe it is easy to make. We used homemade baked beans and chicken dogs but the rest was followed to a tee. Thanks for a fun dish. Also, I was thinking for anyone who likes to cook in a dutch oven while camping - this would be a great recipe for that.
