Reviews for Hot Dog Soup
"Because we are only two in out household, I changed out a few things with delicious results. I halved the recipe, but instead of parsnips (never used them) I replaced with 1 celery stalk. I didn't use evaporated milk, but used the whole can of soup, and instead of just a half cup of water, used 3/4 cup so more soup like. Husband loved it and instead of feeding four he ate for three!"
"this is really good! I did not change a thing,you just got to try this!"
"This is a surprise favorite. My kids even eat the carrots!"
"While it's touted as a kid's meal, my husband and I love this easy soup. It's a great one-dish meal!"
