Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe

This Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe is a very simple recipe that can be put together rather quickly. I was just looking for something a little different than the conventional Mac and Cheese recipes. I followed the recipe as written and it was very good. The original recipe called for beer, but I substituted chicken broth in place of it. The flavor of the hot dogs means a lot in this recipe; I would use all beef if possible.

If you’re in the mood for something a little different, give this Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs Recipe a try-it’s well worth the effort.

 

Ingredients

1 pound elbow macaroni

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (divided)

1 package beef hot dogs (cut into 1-inch pieces)

1 tablespoon butter

1 medium onion (finely chopped)

2 tablespoons all- purpose flour

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 cups milk

1 generous tablespoon spicy mustard

2 generous tablespoons ketchup

3 cups Sharp Cheddar

Directions

1. Cook Macaroni according to package instructions for al dente.

2. Preheat broiler for low heat- and set rack 12 inches from heat.

3. While pasta cooks, heat a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, and then add hot dogs and brown on both sides. Remove the hot dogs with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate.

4.  Add another tablespoon of olive oil, and the butter. When butter melts, cook onions until translucent, then add flour and cook another minute; add the chicken broth and cook until thickened.

5.  Mix in milk and bring to a boil, then season the sauce with salt and pepper, and stir in the mustard, and ketchup.

5. Lower the heat and add 2 cups of the cheese. Stir to melt

6. Drain pasta well. Combine pasta and hot dogs with sauce- then pour into 13 x 9 casserole dish and top with remaining cheese.

7. Melt and brown cheese under broiler.
