potato and franks-loaded potato casserole, scalloped potatoes

These scalloped potatoes are loaded with franks (hot dogs) and make one of the creamiest casseroles! Sliced golden potatoes are tossed in a creamy cheese sauce along with some sliced hot dogs creating one loaded with flavor meal. 

Children even happen to enjoy this dish and it happens to be very versatile as you can use sausage, bacon or keilbasa for the hot dogs. I personally really like scalloped potatoes with franks, plus hot dogs are a frugal ingredient. Cheddar cheese is a must as it melts into creaminess unlike some other cheeses that can get quite stringy. If you happen to have some left overs, no worries because it reheats very nicely and still stays creamy after reheating. Do try this dish as it has truly been one of those satisfying meals we’ve really enjoyed.
