Stir well to combine and add in hot dog mixture. Spread into a greased 9x13 baking pan and top with remaining 1 cup of hot dog mixture. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
I didn't particularly care for this, I thought it came out pretty dry. The flavor was good and all, but it really could have used something to make it a little less dry. Hubs, however, LOVVEEDD this! He asked me everyday after I made this if there was any left, because he wanted to take leftovers to work. This would be a very kid friendly recipe as well, and is a great alternative to corn dogs in a pinch!
