Cheesy Mac ‘N’ Dogs

"I've made this casserole for 25 years and my family never gets tired of it," writes Sue Gonzales from her home in Fortson, Georgia. "I like to assemble it the night before, then pop it in the over after work. A tossed salad completes the meal nicely."

    I'm not a mac and cheese person, but my family loves it, so I made this for them. I told them that I was going to ask them a question, and before I could even ask, they both said I had to make this again. It wasn't even the question I was going to ask! LOL! I did do one thing differently, though. Because I have a large deep skillet, I mixed everything in it, and then just put that in the oven, instead of dirtying another dish. Something to keep in mind, if you can.

    This is a nice change of pace. I did add frozen mixed vegetables. I also cut the hot dogs into bite size pieces and cooked them with the macaroni. I did not have Velveeta so used cubed Colby/Monterey Jack cheese & shredded Cheddar/Mozzarella cheese combo. I will make again & this time use the Velveeta.
