DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
  • Cook macaroni according to package directions, drain.
  • Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with Pam (cooking spray) or grease pan and set aside.
  • In a large saucepan heat cream and evaporated milk (see note 1 in description), mustard, salt and pepper to boiling.
  • Reduce heat and stir in cheese (see note 2 in description)with a whisk or a wooden spoon until melted and smooth.
  • REMOVE FROM HEAT.
  • Stir in tomatoes, onions and hotdogs or little smokies(if using).
  • Put macaroni in baking pan and pour sauce over, mixing in the cheese sauce well so all the macaroni is well covered (this can be done in a separate saucepan or bowl but by mixing in the pan there is one less dish to wash).
  • In a small bowl mix together bread crumbs and Parmesan (or if you are making your own bread crumbs in a blender you can add the Parmesan and just whirl the bread crumbs and Parmesan in the blender -- one less dish to wash).
  • Sprinkle breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture over the macaroni/cheese in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
