Now, if you are one of the many couponers that cashed in on the numerous sales on hot dogs this summer, you are in the predicament I am in: lots of packs of hot dogs but not a lot of summer left to grill them. Now, besides having a hot dog ho-down at your house and inviting 50 to 100 people, there seems to be only a handful of other things you can do with them. Sonny Boy likes to try to stick them in his ears but if you aren’t a 3-year-old, that might not be for you. Well, to help out my fellow hounds, I created 2 recipes that should help dwindle the hot dog population in your freezer and they should also come in handy during the fall and winter, when you want a hearty meal without paying so much for beef.
The first recipe I created is called Poor Mom’s “keilbasa” and egg noodles. Carrot or zucchini ribbons(see recipe) makes this dish over the top.
The second recipe was a twist on the classic red beans and rice. It was heavenly and even my “meat is kryptonite” toddler loved it…..he even ate 2(toddler size) bowls of it!
