"This is an old family recipe....My kids love it. They usually eat 3 to 4 hot dogs each. You could even make this a vegetarian meal by substituting your favorite vegetarian ingredients. You can use any type of hot dogs or sausages that you would like."

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Return to the pot, and mash with the milk, butter, salt, and pepper.
  2. While the potatoes are boiling, place the hot dogs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then keep warm on low until the potatoes have been mashed.
  3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  4. Cut the hot dogs down the center, leaving the two halves attached (like a hot dog bun). Stuff the hot dogs with mashed potatoes and place into a baking dish. Place half a slice of cheese on top of each hot dog.
  5. Broil in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly and has melted, about 1 minute.

These are SO good, someone made them and brought them to work and I had 3 of them! So simple, yet so tasty!

I love hot dogs, and plan on trying this soon.. but it can't become a vegetarian meal if it contains meat.

This is surprisingly good!! Used leftover mashed potatoes.

How can you not love hot dogs topped with potatoes and cheese? My mom used to add some minced onion to the potatoes but I prefer to add chives. The oniony flavor goes really well. I agree wit...
