About this recipe: This is a great after-school snack that the kids will love. Hot dogs are topped with mashed potatoes and Cheddar cheese and baked. The recipe can also be made in the microwave.
Excellent! I give it 5-stars, not because it's such an amazing dish (I mean, come on, it's just hot dogs & potatoes) but, it's so quick & easy and has so much potential for experimentation. I only had brats on hand, so I decided to stuff my mashed potatoes in the brats & poured mushroom gravy on top instead of cheese. My whole family loved it! I thought the name "sheep dogs" (as mentioned by another reviewer) was very clever for this dish. Next time I try this recipe, I may try Italian sausages with marinara & mozzarella topping (i.e. the "Italian Sheep Dog") or sour cream, bacos, green onion & shredded cheddar cheese (i.e. the "American Sheep Dog"). As for the brat . . . well, that'd be the German Sheep Dog :-) Just so many possibilities, and tons of fun for the kids too! - 15 Apr 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been out of town for a couple of days. I got home and really wasn't in the mood to cook dinner but I found four hotdogs in the freezer so I decided to make this. My husband wasn't excited when I told him what we were having but after his first bite, he said we definitely need to have this again. My son and his friend enjoyed it too. Not gourmet, but for hot dog lovers it is something different and good. - 23 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very good, cheap, and easy. I used leftover mashed taters from last night, added some bacon, used cheddar as thats what I had on hand, and fried my dogs on both sides after cutting so they would have a nice flavor. I will totally make these again. I always have hotdogs and they were perfect to use up the left over taters and the true bonus was they were so quick to make =)) - 31 Oct 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
