Last weekend my husband cooked up some hot dogs, corn on the cob, and made some potato salad. It was a quick and easy dinner. But then we had three hot dogs leftover. It's not something that can easily be taken to school or work (my husband likes a lot of condiments on his hot dogs!) for lunch. Then I found this recipe and thought that I'd try it. I could use up the hot dogs and the leftover corn on the cob! This was suprisingly not bad! The kids enjoyed it and ate all of their dinner. Although this is not something that I'd think of making on an every day basis, it was quick and easy and a great way to use up some leftovers!
recipe slightly adapted from Simply Recipes
1 Tbsp butter
3 standard sized hot dogs, sliced into 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thick slices
1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
2/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup of water
kernels from 1 1/2 ears of cooked corn on the cob
1/2 pound cooked pasta
1. Melt butter in a large skillet on medium high heat. Add the chopped onions and sliced hot dogs. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions and the hot dogs are nicely browned, 5-10 minutes.
2. Add the sour cream and water, stir until creamy. Add corn and mix in. Heat until steamy. Mix in pasta.
