My mother made this for me when I was a kid and it's just great. She's had this recipe forever and still makes it today. If you like hot dogs, then you're gonna love this! : ) We serve it with hot corn or string beans on the side. You may also use seasoned ground beef instead of hot dogs, if you wish.
