    appleydapply's Note:

    My kids and I watched Clara make this recipe on one of her depression cooking YouTube videos. We then tweaked it for our tastes. It's very easy and economical, and surprisingly good for such simple ingredients. Although it takes 25 minutes on the stove top, you only have to stir occasionally, so you can be doing other things in the kitchen while it cooks. The amount of hot dog wieners you add just depends on how meaty you want it, and the size of the wieners. As Clara says, "It's nourishing!" although it's a little high in fat and sodium for every day in our household.

      This is great when you have nothing in the house that resembles a meal! I must confess, I doctored it up a bit and added garlic, cheddar cheese, bell peppers, hot red peppers, oregano, basil, and black pepper. I could eat this for breakfast. The Great Idaho Potato/Made for My 3 Chefs. Thank you for posting this super quick and tasty meal!
