I made this late yesterday afternoon for my daughter's quickie on the go dinner. I didn't use processed cheese, but made my own cheese sauce using shredded cheddar. She loves mac and cheese and loves hotdogs, so of course, she thought this was super! Thanks Zaina!

I'm nuts too...

Five stars just for the ease of this. I also used homemade cheese sauce (Nacho Cheese Sauce, from this site) and about a cup of it as we like it to be creamier. The baby LOVED this! I served it with fried fish without the hot dogs and then with the hot dogs for my non-fish eaters. Thanks Zania!

Thank you! It was driving me crazy that I could not find a recipe like this. When I was pregnant, I used to make boxed mac & cheese and cut up hot dogs and cook it in it. Now I make it all the time for my son, who absolutely loves it. (Maybe because I craved it the whole time I was pregnant with him) Now I can try it without the box mac & cheese. Oh yeah, sometimes instead of hot dogs, i will throw some chicken nuggets into the mix.
