The lazy, hazy crazy days of summer? They have arrived. In full force.
I may lose some readers over this recipe , but it’s a true lifesaver when life happens and you’ve got to call in Plan B reinforcements.
This speedy, three-(main)-ingredient skillet dish doesn’t even have a proper name. I grew up enjoying it on nights when dad was in charge of cooking. So, in honor of my dad’s save-the-day cooking skills, let’s call it Papa Bo’s Hot Dog Skillet.
Hot Dog Skillet
- 1 package hot dogs
- 6 (or so) large potatoes, scrubbed (you can peel them, but scrub and slice is faster… and don’t all the vitamins hide in the skins anyway?!)
- 1/2 onion
- cooking oil
- salt and pepper
- ketchup (optional)
- salsa (optional)
Scrub, quarter, and thinly slice the potatoes. Heat oil in large skillet. Cook potatoes on medium heat, stirring frequently. Chop onion. Add to potatoes. Slice hot dogs and add to the mixture. Cook until potatoes and hot dogs are lightly browned and potatoes are tender. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with salsa or ketchup.
Add some carrot sticks and apple slices for a full meal deal in no time.
Well, have I lost you? Surely you’ve eaten more unusual meals. Do tell!
