Corn Bread Bun Chili Dog

This recipe I found on Facebook from BuzzFeed Food. Here is a link to a video of the recipe being made:

I love the idea of baking the hotdogs into corn bread buns. I'm not as thrilled with the chili. I'm not a fan of beans, although they are good protein and cheap. But for a budget dish, having more hotdogs and especially all that ground beef doesn't make this budget friendly. I think you could easily get away with an inexpensive brand of canned chili, like Hormel. EDIT: After a trip into town today, a can of Hormel chili (beans or no beans) was $1.99. I ended up buying a can of Best Choice (store brand) 10.5 oz Hot Dog Chili Sauce for 79¢.

Corn Bread Bun Chili Dog
Serving Size: 6

Boxed corn bread batter
6 Tyson Ball Park Bun Size Franks

Hot Dog Chili
1 pound ground beef
½ white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon red chili flake
1 Tyson Ball Park Bun Size Frank, cut into chunks
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium/high heat. Cook Ball Park Angus Beef Franks just until they show grill marks. Set aside.
2. Preheat oven to 400˚F/200˚C.
3. Pour cornbread batter into a greased and parchment lined 9x13 baking dish. Place 6 hot dogs evenly over batter, only gently pushing them into the batter.
4. Bake for 17-20 minutes until bread is set and lightly browned.
5. Heat a saucepan over medium high and sauté onions and garlic until turning translucent, 2-3 minutes.
Add ground beef to pan and break up with spoon to crumble. Cook until meat is no longer pink and cooked through. Season with salt and pepper and all of the dried seasonings.
6. Drain the beans and add them to the seasoned meat along with the diced tomatoes and hot dog.
7. Simmer for 20-30 minutes.
8. Cut the cornbread along the side of each hot dog, leaving a bit of space on both sides to form a bun.
9. Spoon a hearty scoop of the Hot Dog Chili over and sprinkle with cheese.
10. Enjoy!


  1. I made this and the chili self made is way better than can. Also advise using a bigger pan than 8x8 or less hotdogs to get right ratio of dog and bread. Also let cornbread sit for a bit and cool the bread will become easier for removing.Good food!

  2. Right now you’re probably reading this message because you’re desperate to finally learn how to not only train your dog quickly and effectively, but you also don’t want to have to spend a huge chunk of cash on professional dog trainers or read yet another dog training book that doesn’t get you results.

    Don’t worry, you’re NOT alone in your frustration!
