Oh don't roll your eyes at the thought ... Trust me its good . When my mother in law first made this I probably rolled my eyes and said WHAT !!! but trust me its DELISH ...
Easy to make : You need hotdogs and I suggest the healthiest ones you can buy try to avoid fillers and all that bad stuff go organic if you can .
So you slice them not all the way through you need them to hold the potatoes .
You will make a small pot of mashed potatoes or big if you want extra for some potato pancakes .
After there done you will fill your hot dog not to full.. I like to use some pepper a little garlic powder and some paprika for a little color.(salt) Is up to you I have it in the water while I am boiling the potatoes so I don't add any more this is up to you .
Then I top it with cheese and the best cheese I like is a slice of velveeta cheese or you can use whatever you like .
I then place them on a baking sheet line with foil and a light cooking spray you don't want them to stick .Bake at 350 for 35 min hot dogs need to be cooked so gauge this 35 to 45 min depending ... cheese melted hot dogs looking golden and then they are ready to serve ..
And they are amazingly Good !!!
I love carrots they almost look like a sweet potato fry in this picture not a fry but they were so yummy .Here is how I made them .
I used 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter because your adding salt so you don't want to much .
1 lb baby carrots
1tablespoon of brown sugar 1/4 teaspoon of salt
Just preheat the butter in a large pan on medium heat cut the carrots lengthwise cook them about 3 minutes stir in sugar as it thickens stir in salt it will get a bit of a glaze to it . If you don't have brown sugar you can use regular sugar .I like the brown sugar ..That's just me .
and I prefer them to be soft not mush so if 3 min is not enough you can cook a few minutes more they should be fork tender at least .
I also love to roast all veggies including carrots you just cant go wrong its a different way to eat your vegetables .. And a great way to introduce them to picky veggie eaters both kids and big kids AKA adults AKA your husband .
You have probably had eggplant parm at least one time in your life .. If not your not living .
OMG these are the best ever its eggplant rolled into a ball like a meatball and cooked and served with pasta .. trust me when I tell you its to die for .. Thanks to my mom for the recipe ..
And for teaching me how to cook !!!
Nothing like going to a local market to get fresh fruit and veggies ..
Cant wait to start my garden and get me some chickens .Soon very soon !!
