    This is great..I make this for breakfast only I use sausage..never thought about hot dogs. This really came in handy today..alday at the doctors and we were starved. This fulled the tummy and was so yummy. Thank You
    My 13 year old son's favorite. I always brown the potatoes and onion first then add the hot dogs. Make it quicker by using frozen potatoes o'brien or even frozen hash browns. I have also made this with polish sausage and even brats. Always great and super simple! Thanx Inez..

    This is so darn simple, and very tasty indeed! I microwave the potatoes, as they seem to fry better this way. I like soft middles and crunchy outsides! Then put the potatoes in the fry pan first with the onion. Once all is just beginning to brown, I add the hot dogs. This way I find they don't "over cook". Last comes the cheese, just until melted. Oh my, this is good comfort food!! I recommend "Best's Kosher Dogs" or at least a dog that has a good strong flavor.

    I thought I would really enjoy this recipe as I like all the ingredients it requires. However, it just didnt taste as good as it looks. But I must say that it is a very filling recipe. I may try this again and see if I can't tweak some of the ingredients and make it more to my liking. Maybe use kielbasa instead of hotdogs. Thanks!


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
