Old Mother Hubbard Weiner Casserole

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Leslie

This is something my 9 year old and I came up with one night when we went to make dinner and the cupboard was bare! While certainly not gourmet food, it's a real kid pleaser, and I thought it wasn't too bad either. Quick and easy for a weeknight meal when you have little time and nothing thawed! Make it a little more zippy for adult tastes by adding cumin and chopped cilantro or a little curry if you'd like.

Easy, and very tasty! I used vegetarian hot dog sausages as mum and dad are veggies! I took your advice and used cumin and chili to perk it up a bit. Served with Gerry' Holiday Bread Buns for a great, hearty Autumn supper. Made for #33 and the Aussie recipe swap. Merci darlink, FT:-)
