Cheesy Franks and Potatoes Recipe

I came up with this recipe primarily because my husband loves hot dogs and I needed a break from standard fare using franks. It was an instant hit. Even I enjoy the rich taste.—Shirley Bradley, Wildwood, Florida

"OMGoodness, this was wonderful!! My husband ate half of it, alone! Made a couple changes to suit us ~ did not cook onion/pepper in oil ~ just added to soup mixture. Heated cheddar soup in micro. just til warm ~ seemed to blend better with half-half. Also added extra potato; did not peel. Definitely will make again, and again. Very, very easy to make ~ highly recommend!! K."
