Super Secret Recipe

Ok, so my mother used to make this when we were kids, and I still make it to this day (The Boy loves it and it makes great left overs.)

Now, hear me out.  This is going to sound GROSS.  Really, it is.  But I PROMISE you it's delicious, and it's cheap, and super easy to make.  So if nothing else, it's got all that going for it.

Franks & Noodles

1 PK of flat noodles
1 package (or 8 individual) hot dogs
1 sm can of tomato paste (the smallest you can buy)
1 C. water
1/4 c. of brown sugar
1 tblsp of spicy mustard (or four squirts)
Cheese Wiz
Shredded cheddar cheese.

  1. Boil a pot of water.
  2. Put the flat noodles in it and let it cook
  3. While you're waiting for the water to boil/noodles to cook, cut up the hot dogs (I usually cut them in half long-ways and then cut them into sections, making half circles) 
  4. Put the hot dogs in a casserole dish (I think my is 2 quarts and it's tall and round.)
  5. Add the brown sugar, water, tomato paste and mustard to the franks and mix it.
  6. Cover the dish and cook in the microwave for five minutes.
  7. By now your noodles should be done.  Drain them.
  8. Put them back in the pot you cooked them (after draining) and take two big huge spoonfuls of cheese wiz and put them in the noodles (I usually use the big spoons that we use for mixing and such.)
  9. Mix the cheese wiz around until the noodles are evenly coated and all the cheese is melted.
  10. Take the franks out of the microwave and put the noodles on top of the franks.
  11. Take the shredded cheddar and sprinkle it over the top.
  12. Cover and cook for another five minutes in the microwave.  
  13. Remove from microwave, serve and eat!
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!


  1. Travis loves hot dogs and mac and cheese. Maybe I will give this specific recipe a try. :)

    1. It's SUPER yummy. And it's really easy. It makes enough food for like, five people, so you'll have a lot of leftovers, which is the part I love.
