Hot Dog Soup

"We can always count on our retired pastor for good advice and good recipes, like this thick and hearty soup," shares Kim Holliday of Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. "Chock-full of hot dogs and vegetables, it quickly became my children's favorite."

    Because we are only two in out household, I changed out a few things with delicious results. I halved the recipe, but instead of parsnips (never used them) I replaced with 1 celery stalk. I didn't use evaporated milk, but used the whole can of soup, and instead of just a half cup of water, used 3/4 cup so more soup like. Husband loved it and instead of feeding four he ate for three!

    While it's touted as a kid's meal, my husband and I love this easy soup. It's a great one-dish meal!
