Quick and Easy Hot Dogs With Mashed Potatos

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Chickermunker

This is an alternative to the traditional "hot dog and french fries" meal; not much harder to make but the taste and presentation appeal to adults as well as kids. I've found that Nathan's or Boar's Head hot dogs work best (I usually prefer Hebrew National brand but they are too dry for this recipe). And thick mashed potatoes work better than thin; the recipe calls for instant because it's quick and easy but leftover mashed potatoes are even better. I typically spoon the mashed potatoes onto the hot dogs but others may use a pastry bag and large whipped cream nozzle to ritz them up (it's pretty cool looking)

These were good. I used Kielbasa sliced like hot dogs and I also added come well drained sauerkraut under the mashed potatoes. I sprinkled grated cheese over the top before putting in oven. They were very good. It was a good way to get my son to eat mashed potatoes as he hates them. He at e the whole thing. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It is a fun way to get both the meat and potatoes together and I know now that I can get my son to eat mashed potatoes.
