    Pretty good--healthy way to use up hot dogs. I didn't have any v-8 (I thought I did)so I used tomato puree and shook some hot sauce in it. Close enough. Surprisingly good actually. It could really be good with some parmesan cheese on top. I served it over whole wheat penne pasta.  -  08 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I didn't try this with hotdogs, as I'm not really a fan of them. But I DID try this recipe with Smoked Sausage, and it was awesome!! Next I think I'll make it with Brauts. Thanks for the recipe.  -  08 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I like this recipe, right up to the Brussels sprouts! I subbed veggie dogs (meatless franks) for the hot dogs. I was looking for a recipe to use up my Brussels sprouts; I don't really like them that much anyway, but I'm trying to branch out. This recipe would really be great with just the onions and franks etc. maybe over a bun! Very inventive recipe and if you like Brussels sprouts, you'll like this.  -  19 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
