Stuffed Wieners

"This is a meal for the kiddies, something my mom used to make. It's a good way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. My son was skeptical,but after trying them,decided that they were pretty good."

    I gave this 5 stars. My grammy used to make these. She would add chopped chives to the potatoes and top with american cheese and bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe. Christine (internetnut)

    I can't believe I stumbled on this recipe here. This is one of my very favorite comfort foods from childhood. I still make if for myself sometimes. Simple, tasty and just what the doctor ordered when you have leftover hotdogs or mashed potatoes. Yum!

    So easy to make, and so loved by my kids!!! Thank you very much for posting this, islandgirl77551!! This is a keeper in my house! Made this for lunch today and the kids were asking me to make MORE for dinner tonight!!! (I liked them as well...) Great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes, too!

    I tried this today, as an easy meal for lunch, and my kids and hubby gave it the thumbs up! I didn't change anything, but the kids put ketchup on them, but they put ketchup on everything anyway! Thank you for this easy kid friendly 'addition' to our family!
