A taco shell makes a good holder for a hot dog dressed up with a tasty combination of baked beans and cheese. "When our children were young, they asked for this meal at least once a week," remembers Kat Thompson of Prineville, Oregon.
"This is one of my standby recipes," reports Valorie Walker of Bradley, South Carolina. "I always have wieners on hand, so it's easy to dress them up with a tangy homemade barbecue sauce to create these 'ribs' that youngsters love. They're delicious served over rice, and leftovers reheat well," she adds.
Anna Mayer of Fort Branch, Indiana promises this quick-to-fix macaroni and hot dog combination will please kids of all ages." "Our grandchildren love it, and I like it because we can make it together with things I have on hand."
"When we were raising our six children, they took turns cooking supper," recounts Margaret Pienta of Abilene, Texas. "Every time my oldest son's turn came around, we knew what he'd be serving...this great-tasting favorite of his. Now we make it for our grandkids."
"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."
