Hot Dog Mac and Cheese Casserole Recipe

Ever since I was a kid, I have enjoyed hot dogs with macaroni and cheese. Unfortunately, using boxed mac and cheese can be rather disappointing; so I decided it was time to make a casserole that consisted of sliced hot dogs and homemade mac and cheese. You can use whatever type of hot dogs you like; I always prefer the all-beef hot dogs. This recipe is very easy, the mac and cheese is first cooked on the stove top, and then mixed with the sliced hot dogs and baked in the oven for about 30 minutes. This casserole makes a great dinner for any night of the week. Enjoy.

Although Mac and Cheese aint common here in our country, but I did try it last week for my little girl though, and she loved it. There's something about mac and cheese that kids really like. Thanks for the post, and God Bless.

Wow, those pictures bring me back to my childhood. Nothing like some sliced up hot dogs in my blue box mac n cheese! I guess since I've grown up it's time for that recipe to "grow up" too. Thanks!

Yum. This looks very comforting. I've never made my own mac and cheese from scratch but I think it's about time. Great winter recipe especially. Good stuff Bobby:) Love Jem
