Mashed Potato-Topped Hot Dogs

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.

Makes

2 servings

INSTEAD of the usual hot dog and bun meal, I like to make more of a main meal. It's a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes and the toppings can be varied. Best of all, it's kid-friendly and very easy to make to fit everyone's preferences.
