My Mom's Hot dog Casserole

When I was a kid, this casserole was a staple in our household; and one we asked for often. Now, I still make it for my family and, aside from the fond memories it always evokes, the best part has to do with this:

Four ingredients=dinner.

Awesome, right?

And you probably have all those ingredients on hand in your kitchen at this very moment!

I'll give you the list, while you check and see.

First, potatoes.

Second, hot dogs.

Third, green beans.

Fourth, Italian salad dressing.

Got em?

All right, now all you have to do is pull out a 9 by 13 pan and coat it with cooking spray. Pre-heat your oven to 375.

Then, cut up roughly a dozen large potatoes into smallish pieces, chop a package of hot dogs into bite size chunks, pour a bag of frozen green beans into the mix-which should be settled into your pan by now-and combine it all together thoroughly.

Finally, open a bottle of Italian dressing and pour most of it over the top, before stirring it into the casserole . (You'll want to make sure there's plenty of extra dressing on the bottom, so the potatoes won't burn or dry out during baking.)

Now, you're ready to pop your creation into the oven, where you'll want to stir/check on it approximately every 15-20 minutes. It takes about an hour and a half to cook all the way through, so plan accordingly.

Lastly, enjoy!
