Mashed Potato-Topped Hot Dogs Recipe
INSTEAD of the usual hot dog and bun meal, I like to make more of a main meal. It's a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes and the toppings can be varied. Best of all, it's kid-friendly and very easy to make to fit everyone's preferences.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings
- 4 hot dogs
- 1-1/3 cups mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
