Fun food for the whole family

When you're looking for a fun and fast lunch or dinner for the kids try this recipe and if your kids are like me it will be one of their favorites.

First you'll need some basic ingredients listed below.

1. White bread (wheat will work fine also)

2. Cheese slices (whatever style cheese you like)

3. Hot dogs (chicken, beef or turkey is fine)

4. Toothpicks

5. Cookie sheet

Take the bread slices and lay them on a non stick cookie sheet. Then take the sliced cheese and place them on top of the bread slices. Next take your uncooked hot dogs and lay them diagonal across the top of the bread and cheese. You can also do this laying the hot dog parallel to the bread and lay them down.

Now take the corners of the bread and fold them up around the top of the hot dogs, overlapping the bread corners. Then place a toothpick through the bread and hot dog to hold it in place or place them really close together like the picture if you don't have toothpicks.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place in oven for approximately 15 minutes or until golden brown to your liking. The hot dog will cook as the bread is toasted and the cheese will melt. Take them out when they are to your liking and let cool for a few minuted then serve with the condiments of your choice.

Creamy tomato soup goes well with this simple dish.

Serve With Tomato Soup

You can serve this with a side of tomato soup to warm your body in the winter. It's a different twist on tomato soup and grilled cheese. I know some of you cringe when I say Campbell's tomato soup but this is what I remember my mom serving me and I loved it.

During these times it's important to try a simple, fast recipes that kids will love and will be something they remember for the rest of their lives. I know I've taken it with me since I was young and my kids love it. Let us know what your kids say by leaving a comment below. Happy eating.

      Love this and have made them this way before. We also use the microwave in the hotter months to make these. It is quick and good too. My kids are all grown up too and do not live near here or at home.

      I am not a hot dog fan but I am definitely a fan of easy and quick meals sure to please the kids (and the hubby) I will definitely have to try this. I actually was interested in this hub particularly because I remember in school they had toasty dogs on the menus. I was wondering if these were the same. Great hub and great recipe!

      Since my kids consider hot dogs a separate food group, this is a great idea.
