Mini Mac & Cheese Dogs
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. + cooling

- In a 15x10x1-in. baking pan, toss bread crumbs with onion, oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 350° until golden brown, stirring once, 5-7 minutes.
- Cook hot dogs and macaroni and cheese according to package directions. To serve, cut hot dogs crosswise in half. Split buns; fill with hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle with toasted crumbs.

The oniony crunch made this dish. I enjoyed the mac & cheese & hot dog w/o the roll, but everyone else had the bread. This was so easy to make; it really brought out the inner kid!!! Delicious! Will put it in my keeper file.
