Welcome to another Wiener Wednesday! This is extra-special because you, gentle readers, took to the polls to determine this week’s dish. After the votes had been counted, Hot Dog Soup was elected your frankfurter dish of choice with just under 50% of the votes. I am not surprised since it was the most dubious sounding of the bunch (although I thought that Yankee Spaghet would have made a stronger showing. Alas, that Italian treat will have to be saved for another day).
This recipe was submitted to DiS! by Sue J., one of the totally awesome people who follow me over on Facebook This little gem comes from Heavenly Helpings: Sisters of the Presentation ca.1984
Oh, those wacky nuns.
Hot Dog Soup
- 4 potatoes
- 1 can tomato soup (condensed kind–undiluted)
- 7 to 8 hot dogs
- salt & pepper
- 1/2 stick margarine or butter
Cover potatoes to the top with water. Cook until done. Add once can of tomato Soup. Slice hot dogs and add to potatoes. Add salt and pepper tot aste. Cookuntil hot dogs are done. Add margarine or butter. Stir and serve.
Well, you can’t get any easier than that. Bring on my big saucepan!
I cut this recipe down to 2 potatoes, 2 hot dogs and 1/4 stick of light butter. Which, I am very glad I did because that recipe would have made a lot of Hot Dog Soup.
Let’s get down to it:
I’m glad that the soup was such a breeze to make because if were more steps than this, or god forbid, involved a roux, I’d be pissy. The soup wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t good, either (I feel like I say that about 75% of the food I make). I think that the copious amounts of Crystal Hot Sauce I added in the bowl made it edible. The end result was kind of like a very spicy tomato bisque. With the random piece of frank here and there.
Ew. That sounds disgusting.
I will not be making this again. But I am not putting a pox on the house of Sue J., either.
