Cheesy Frankfurters Potatoes and Peppers Recipe


We use to go nuts for potatoes and hot dogs when I was a kid. My dad would always make them for us. Then when I had kids and we were on a strict budget I would make them. The kids went nuts when I added the blends of cheddar over the top. Easy throw together meal and they were over the moon for this one!



Small cubes of potatoes 
Hotdogs cut up you decide how many per family
Cheddar shredded cheese to cover the top
Bell pepper slices 
Olive oil for drizzling
Garlic powder
Cayenne pepper
Chili powder
 Salt and Pepper to taste

Optional:  Add  1 cup of sauerkraut on top with 4 tablespoons of Thousand Island dressing for a Reuben style casserole. Substitute swiss cheese instead of cheddar.

In a bowl add the cubed potatoes, cut up hot dogs, slices of bell pepper, salt, pepper and cayenne to taste.
Arrange in your greased baking pan to fit. Drizzle the top with olive oil and sprinkle with chili powder.
Bake on 400 degrees until the potatoes are browned on top and hot dogs begin to brown. Top with shredded cheese and bake till melted. ( add the sauerkraut before the cheese and dressing if using and  top with  swiss cheese last.)

My Aunt Marie use to make this when ever I stayed over. Over loved it. I think I might surprise Chris with this this week. I like that it is done in the oven. My aunt use to do it on the stove top but I like that this does not require standing over the stove. Thank you for sharing this!
