Hot Dog Stroganoff

You can use any kind of hot dog. Kosher hot dogs are good. If you want to take the recipe up a notch, try it with a mild bockwurst sausage.

If you are serving this dish to young children, cut the hot dogs into smaller, bite-sized pieces, as hot dog rounds can be a choking hazard for young children.
