Hot Diggity Dog

Have you ever wondered what else you could do with hot dog wieners besides the traditional, Coney Island or Hot Dog in a Bun? Well, wonder no more. Here's a tasty casserole that will make you re-think the hot dog.

Hot Dog Casserole

1/2 c. onion, diced
1/4 c. butter
1/3 c. bell pepper, diced
3 Tblsp. flour
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
salt & pepper to taste
1 c. evaporated can milk
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 c. Velveeta cheese, cubed
1-lb. hot dogs, cut into circles
6-oz elbow noodles, cooked according to package directions

In a large skillet, saute onion & bell pepper in the butter. Stir in flour, oregano, salt & pepper until smooth. Add in milk, Worcestershire sauce and Velveeta. Stir over low heat until cheese is melted and mixture thickens.

In a greased 9x13" casserole dish, combine cooked noodles & hot dogs. Pour cheese sauce over noodle mixture. Top with a drizzling more of milk and a few dots of butter.

Bake at 350* for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Sounds good. Unfortunately, my husband and I don't eat hotdogs. Do you think I could substitute another meat like hamburger with the same mixture?

BTW, I have been browsing your blog from time to time, and I appreciate all the recipes that you share with us. Thank you SO much for sharing with your blog friends (smiles).

P.S. You have a nice blog also (smiles).

Mrs. Sofia,

Thank you so much for kindly words. I am happy that you enjoy your time when here.

As for the recipe, I don't see why ground beef, chicken, turkey or any other meat wouldn't work. I used the hot dogs as I was wanting to use what I had in the freezer to help rotate my inventory.

If you try it, I'd love to hear your feedback on it. Have a beautiful week!

~Warm Cozy Blessings
