Mac and Cheese Dogs

Ingredients
2
cups dried elbow macaroni
2
tablespoons butter
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
2
cups milk
6
ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (1 1/2 cups)
6
ounces American cheese, shredded (1 1/2 cups)
8
hot dogs of choice
8
hot dog buns
1/2
cup toasted bread crumbs
 
Chili powder (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cook pasta according to package directions, set aside. In medium saucepan melt butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, cook 1 minute. Stir in milk all at once. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Stir in cheeses until melted. Stir in pasta. Remove from heat. Cool slightly.
  2. Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil. Place hot dogs in buns on pan. Top each dog with about 1/3 cup macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and, if desired, chili powder. Bake 10 minutes, until hot dogs are heated through. Transfer each hot dog to plates with a spatula. Serve with remaining mac and cheese. Makes 8 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

*American Cheese:

Make sure you choose deli deluxe American cheese, not individually wrapped slices. The whole block of slices will be easier to shred. Or, ask for an unsliced block of American cheese from the deli.

**Toasted Bread Crumbs:

Spread soft bread crumbs on a shallow baking pan and toast in a 350 degrees F oven for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden.
