"I had some leftover hot dogs so I decided to try this (I cut the recipe in half). My husband and I thought it was pretty good, but lacked something. Maybe another spice, like garlic powder. Or a crushed-cracker crust. Or something. I honestly didn't think the "sauce" part had much of a flavor at all. Overall, it was alright. I would make this again if I had leftover hot dogs, with some minor tweaks."

"This is a very easy and quick meal. My daughter loves it. I change types of mustard to give it different flavors of the mood at that moment."

"Love this recipe. Great for potlucks. I usually double the recipe and top with a crumble of shredded cheese and dried bread crumbs. That gives it a nice crunch. Everyone always wants the recipe."

"This is such a simple recipe to make, and it's fun to try different variations on the original. I like to use little smokie links instead of the hot dogs, sometimes smoked brats. Also can swap out the vegies to fit your family's liking.

One word of advice, do not overcook the potatoes unless you want it to be a soupy mashed potato mess. And I use whatever potato I have on hand, and peel them if needed."

"When I brought the leftovers from this casserole to school the next day, reheating it in the teacher's room caused quite a stir and thus, I became the envy of my colleagues during lunch. Afterward, my colleagues flooded me with emails requesting the recipe for this very tasty dish."
