I am not sure if my mom came up with this recipe from leftover mash potatoes or if she found it in a cookbook. She called them Hot Dog Boats. The end of the hot dog when baked would curl up making it look like a canoe. This recipe is so kid friendly that they can help you make it and will be thrilled to eat this. Not exactly the most nutritious but a simple recipe to make.
Cut your hot dogs in half but not all the way through (see picture) and place in 9x13 pan.
Scoop mash potatoes on hot dogs. I used my cookie scoop and it works great.
Cheese on top you can either do shredded or my mom use to cut cheese slices for the top.
