When our children were small and I was busy trying to get all those extra things done that are part of a mom's normal schedule, I would make this quick hot dish. Kids love it.—JoAnn Gunio, Franklin, North Carolina

"I used little cocktail sausages instead. I also precooked the potatoes on the stove and used a little garlic salt. The oven time was shorter because of the potatoes precooked. My 3 picky eaters and myself loved it!"

"Wouldn't even give this 1 star, if I could help it. This was just BLAH! Even after adding extra pepper and garlic salt. I even did the onions in the butter like others suggested, and added some cheese into the sauce, and also on top later. Still BLAH! Word of caution: Line some aluminum foil on the bottom of oven to catch the mess."

"We've been trying to find a decent recipe to use up some leftover hotdogs (we never get through an entire pack). Of all the ones we've found, this is definitely the best. I cut this in half because we had half a pack of hotdogs left. I used whole milk because that's what we had. It took about 50 minutes in my oven. We will definitely make this again. Takes a little longer than a normal week night dish but oh well :)"

"I thought this was very good everyone liked it. They said it was a keeper for another time. I think it would be good with a little bacon in it. I thought it reminded me of scalloped potato with ham."

"This was a fun and easy casserole for both picky grandchildren and adults! Used high quality kosher hot dogs and sharp cheddar cheese. Used frozen hash browns and you can use saw meal white gravy to get that gourmet southern comfort food taste! This is a splurge ---and does the trick when you are in a fix for a fun and inexpensive meal for the family!"

"Very good and simple. Flavor would obviously change with each type/brand of hot dog used."
