Hey, what could be better that two of your favorite things combined in one! My kids are crazy for Mac & Cheese and they also love hot dogs, so when I surprised them with hot dogs topped with homemade creamy, cheesy mac & cheese they literally were leaping around the kitchen with joy!


For the Mac & Cheese

½ lb macaroni pasta
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 (12-oz) can evaporated milk
½ cup chicken stock
1 teaspoon mustard powder
8 oz grated cheddar cheese

For the hot dogs

8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns


Bring a large pot of to a boil and add salt. Add the pasta and cook for roughly 10 minutes or until al dente.  Drain pasta.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the evaporated milk and chicken stock and cook, stirring regularly, until thickened.  When thick, stir in the mustard powder. Add cheese in 3 batches, stir to combine until melted.

Combine the pasta and cheese sauce and stir thoroughly to coat the pasta.

While the sauce is cooking, bring a small amount of water to a boil in a shallow pan. Add the hot dogs, cover, and cook until the hot dogs are warmed through. About 5 minutes.

To serve, place a hot dog in a bun and top with the mac & cheese.

    I love to make these for my three kids, but I cheat and use the instant Mac & Cheese, and it’s still great. My kids call these “fancy dogs”.
