Macaroni with Cheese with Hot Dogs

When I was a kid, my Mom was a single mom of two. Things were really tight. If she knew of food assistance she didn’t have it. She was the most amazing strong woman! I definitely got my skill of making something of nothing from her. She was so creative.

She made this recipe up and it became one of our all time favorites for dinner or even lunch.

It was requested at my house today for lunch so I decided to share it with you! I did really hesitate though….. Most people are very turned off by the name. Hot dogs in mac and cheese? Ewww. Yeah, it’s not a pretty dish. You gotta trust me on this though! Really, you do!

My kids, my husband and every daycare child I have had in thirty years has loved this stuff!

Give it a chance, try it out! I would love to hear how your kids liked it!
