Mashed Potato-Topped Hot Dogs Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 4 hot dogs
  • 1-1/3 cups mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)
  • 2 slices process American cheese, cut into quarters
  • Salsa and chopped green onions


  • 1. Make a lengthwise cut three-fourths of the way through each hot dog. Open hot dogs and place cut side up on a baking sheet. Top with mashed potatoes and cheese. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Spread with salsa and sprinkle with onions. Yield: 2 servings.

"This has been a family favorite since I was a kid. I now cook for my family...but we top with a white gravy and cheese instead of salsa. I'm going to try the salsa topping."
