Hmmmm. I hate to be the giving a bad rating.... Since my bf was working late, I made half of XEKOLIARA's recipe for myself. Being that I am unemployed, and on a budget, this fit the bill perfectly (all ingredients cost under $5!!!). The fact that this is cheap and easy to prepare is deserving of 5 stars alone, but, unfortunately, I am not rating on these criteria (I am rating on taste as I usually do). My only changes were to use 1 (16 oz.) can of pork & beans (the only other size I could find were Campbell's 11 oz. cans) and the full package of Jiffy cornbread mix (I don't see the point in wasting half of it). Oh, and I sprinkled about 1/2 c. of finely shredded cheddar cheese on top of my casserole during the last 5 minutes of baking. I had high hopes, but was very disappointed with the end result. This casserole was DRY, the hot dogs had a "wierd" texture (almost too soft, IMHO) and my cornbread topping was VERY brown, despite baking it on the short end of the recommended time. Perhaps using two (11 oz.) cans of beans would help (i.e. add moisture)??? Since I have no kiddos to cook for (and my bf thought this sounded gross...), I won't be making this again. Sorry, but not for me!
