Pantry Dinner

I'm sure many of you think, "What can I make for dinner without having to head to the store?"

Well, here you have a favorite in my home. Danny grew up on it and the girls really love it too! It's super easy and fast.

So check to see if you have these on hand: hot dogs, mashed potatoes (or the fake stuff), cheese, ketchup. Serve with some fruit cocktail or canned veggies and you're good!

We call this the Stuffed Hot Dog. Cut your hot dogs length-wise and unfold to make them lie flat. Prepare your mashed potatoes and put them on top of the hot dogs. Sprinkle some cheese on top and put them in the oven for 20-30-minutes, or however long it takes to get the kids to clean their room, or have the hot togs heated through. I like to use a cookie sheet with foil on it, makes clean up sooo much easier. When they are done drizzle on ketchup if you like, maybe even mustard!

If anyone tries this then post me a comment and tell me how your family liked it!
