When our children were small and I was busy trying to get done all those extra things that are part of a mom's normal schedule, I would make this quick hot dog casserole. Kids love it! —JoAnn Gunio, Franklin, North Carolina
1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Chopped green onions, optional
Preheat oven to 350°. In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly, about 2 minutes.
In a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish, layer with a third of the potatoes, half the hot dogs and half the onion. Repeat layers. Top with remaining potatoes. Pour white sauce over all.
Bake, covered, for 1 hour. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake until potatoes are tender, 10-15 minutes longer. If desired, garnish with green onions.
