What Is Your Family’s Go-To Meal?

Potato and Hot Dog
Mix 97-3

I’m sure you’re asking yourself, “What the &*^% is that?”  It was supper last night at the Brown house.  It’s a dish my mom has made for my family for as long as I can remember.  Every family has one of those dishes that is unique.  Something that maybe a grandma or great-grandma made when your parents were growing up.

This dish is simply called, “potatoes and hot dogs.”  My mom is 85 years old and she remembers her mom making this.

Here’s how you make Potatoes and Hot Dogs:

For every russet potato, you’ll need 2 hot dogs (I’ll tell you why a little later).  Peel the potatoes.  Then with an apple corer, put a hole in the middle of the potato.  Stuff a frozen hot dog through the hole.  A frozen hot dog shoves into place easier.  Place the potatoes with the hog dogs in an oven-proof pan, like a dutch oven.  Throw the extra hot dogs and the holes from the potatoes in the pan.  Add about an inch of half and half to the pan with 2 tablespoons of butter.  Season with salt and pepper.  Bake covered at 350 degrees or until the potatoes are done and the milk and butter have created almost a gravy with the starch from the potatoes.  My mom always puts carrots in the pan, too.  I don’t like carrots, so I leave them out.

The hot dogs get nice and browned and the potatoes are soft and fluffy.   Everyone will love the potato and hot dog, but the best parts are the extra hot dogs and the holes.  I could really make a meal out of just the holes and the dogs.  If there are leftovers the next day, dice everything and fry in a skillet until crispy.  It’s like potato and hot dog hash.

Does your family have a go-to meal that is unique to your family?
