Getting my kids to eat cabbage is a challenge, so I dress it up with this recipe. The kids like the franks and the creamy, mild mustard sauce. It's an easy, fun meal for the whole family.—Precious Owens, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

  • 1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
