Ok, let's be honest...there are few comfort foods more popular than hot dogs and good ol' mac 'n' cheese. For years, both of these foods were typically chock-full of preservatives and artificial ingredients so these foods were never on anyone's "healthy foods" list. I always felt like eating these were a "guilty pleasure", until now!
A few months ago, I stumbled onto these Oscar Mayer Angus Beef Franks and was immediately intrigued when I read all of the things that are NOT in these dogs.
I pondered what would go well with hot dogs and a craving for good ol' mac 'n' cheese hit. The box of Annie's Macaroni and Cheese caught my eye so after a careful study of the ingredients list, I thought it'd be worth a try.
Of course, you can always add a salad or some other vegetable on the side. And, if you are trying to cut some calories, skip the buns on the hotdogs. You might be surprised how satisfying it can be!
All in all, I think this is a great meal for adults and kids alike....the four-legged kind included :-)
