Mac and Cheese Dogs

 Mac and Cheese Dogs

Okay so there we have it.  You say, she’s completely lost her mind after eating one too many hot dogs and now she went off the deep end. I can hear you all now….saying poor thing. She ran out of recipes and lost her mind. What is this concoction?   Before you go any further with that theory….I am completely sane. I am just daring.  What kid out there did not have a Mom that cut up hot dogs in their Kraft Mac and Cheese?  Come on…admit it.  This is just my “gourmet version” of it.  Try it!  You’ll discover how sane I really am.

Mac and Cheese Dogs 

1 (8 ounce) package elbow macaroni
4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
1 cup heavy cream 
½  teaspoon salt 
Pepper to taste 
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cook and drain macaroni according to package directions; set aside. 

In a large saucepan melt butter. Whisk in the flour with the salt and pepper. Allow to cook for about 2 minutes on low heat, stirring constantly. Gradually pour in milk and cream, and bring to boil, continuing to stir constantly. 

Reduce heat and cook on low for about 10 minutes. Add shredded cheddar little by little and simmer until cheese melts. Pour in your macaroni and stir to coat with cheese sauce. Pour entire mixture into buttered baking dish.

Grill the hot dogs or broil them until they are crisp and slightly charred on the outside. Place the grilled hot dog on a bun and top with a generous amount of macaroni and cheese.  For a real treat sprinkle with bacon or fresh crab meat. Oh My Gosh.
