Hotdogs and Potatoes

Hotdogs and potatoes is one of my favorite lunches; it’s simple, yet yummy! The recipe was passed down to us from my great grandmother. I’m not sure if she invented it, or if she got it from someone else, but that matters not when it comes to matters of flavor. 😉 Click below to get the printable version:


  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 TBSP of olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 cans tomato sauce

Let’s get to it! Start by washing, peeling, and chopping your potatoes into bite sized pieces.

Dump those taters into a pot, cover with cool water, and boil them until they give a little when poked with a fork. You don’t want to cook them too much, as they will cook more when you add them to the hotdogs and sauce. But don’t sweat it if you do; it’ll turn out just fine. I am notorious for overcooking potatoes. 🙂 When you think they’re ready, drain off the water and set ’em aside.

It’s starting to smell good in here!

Whilst your potatoes are boiling, slice those hot dogs into sixths, dump them into a large pot along with a tablespoon of olive oil, and toss with the spices. Once they are spiced to perfection, cook them over medium heat for about 5 minutes or so. You can turn up the heat if you want them browned a little.

Once time’s up, dump in the tomato sauce and boiled potatoes, and cook on low-medium heat until the dish is warmed through–about 5-10 minutes.

And of course, the last and most important step—enjoy it!
One thing I will note here, yours is probably going to look more soupy than mine, because I actually screwed up this time, LOL! I accidentally put in only one can of tomato sauce instead of two!

Wishing you delightful savory sensations! 😀
