(That is, if you consider one person’s curiosity “popular demand”)
I found this reicpe in an issue of “Quick Cooking” and it quickly became one of my family’s favorites. Even my youngest, age 2, asks for more, “dog dog pie”.
Warning: There is nothing, I repeat nothing, healthy about this dish.
Hot Dog Pie
1/2 pound ground beef
4 hot dogs, cut in half lengthwise and sliced
1-16 oz can pork & beans
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons mustard
2 ounces velveeta, cubed
1 unbaked deep dish pie shell
4 slices american cheese
In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the hot dogs, beans, ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and velveeta cubes. Cook and stir until cheese is melted.
Meanwhile, prick pie shell with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Fill with hot beef mixture. Cut each cheese slice into four strips. Arrange cheese to make a lattice topping over pie. Bake 5-10 minutes longer, or until cheese is melted.
Note: I usually only use about 1/2 the amount of mustard the recipe calls for, if I use it at all.
