Easy Macaroni Cheese

    30 min

    This is a great dish to throw together for the little-uns. Macaroni is baked with frankfurters in a cheese sauce. Simple and very satisfying.

    I made this late yesterday afternoon for my daughter's quickie on the go dinner. I didn't use processed cheese, but made my own cheese sauce using shredded cheddar. She loves mac and cheese and loves hotdogs, so of course, she thought this was super! Thanks Zaina!  -  22 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Five stars just for the ease of this. I also used homemade cheese sauce (Nacho Cheese Sauce, from this site) and about a cup of it as we like it to be creamier. The baby LOVED this! I served it with fried fish without the hot dogs and then with the hot dogs for my non-fish eaters. Thanks Zania!  -  13 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Thank you! It was driving me crazy that I could not find a recipe like this. When I was pregnant, I used to make boxed mac & cheese and cut up hot dogs and cook it in it. Now I make it all the time for my son, who absolutely loves it. (Maybe because I craved it the whole time I was pregnant with him) Now I can try it without the box mac & cheese. Oh yeah, sometimes instead of hot dogs, i will throw some chicken nuggets into the mix.  -  14 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
